Trucks..


Anyways, the topic was meant to see who uses their truck for what's it's meant for be it work or hauling/towing per work or otherwise. Apparently no one.

Thought I post these pics as a example of a true throw and go
Is not normal for my van, But one day had to laugh and take a pic.
No they do not count, vans are female rides. Funny how an e250 can not hold it's weight in salt against an F250. I'll give you the being a tool as it has space but I'm not a fan of vans, too weak.

Try it, they rock ... for what I do. Is best option.
Nothing more then a rolling tool shed going from one job to the next.
For a real truck, I kinda like this old farm truck.

I've had more than a few. I was offered a choice recently, I chose a man's vehicle. I didn't come to this conclusion without hands on experience. Vans are weak. Certainly they have more storage AS IS against a truck not decked out with boxes (as my truck is), but not strength.

So no, vans do not count unless this thread is about going door to door painting toenails.

If that's a race truck then you have no business categorizing your soccer mom mini van as a hot rod. Your truck, and I know what it means to the enthusiast, is not in either category. It falls way short of a hot rod against being a drag truck.

Again, I'm a fan of real trucks. This is just one person's opinion but that little S-10 falls short of any muscle category and ONLY TO MYSELF, because it's not attractive as it does not represent hot rod in that continuum nor does it represent testosterone as it pertains to adult muscle.

For the Fast and the Furious high school teenage crowd, I can see it. Hot rod? Puleeze. Nice ride for what it is though.

To all, my opinion is just that, only mine. Thank you for sharing your rides with me. Yes, I'm particular to full size trucks and specifically diesel and I've repremmanded replies for not being up to my standards, but I think that the thread went sideways from the original intent. My topic was (or should have been point blank) do you know what a truck is meant for?

I work from trucks, use them and count on them (unlike creeper which is why she bought a Dodge as it's not a real truck to begin with (as she proves she has no idea what to do with her station wagon) so my title should have represented that inquiry alone.

Thanks guys. We'll start another thread defining what kind of truck you have and why did it interest you in doing what you did to the truck..?

I've had pick-ups and vans for use as work trucks.
I prefer a van.
When you find that you have to carry a rather, vast assortment of tools
and supplies - with a van you can close it up and everything is out of sight.
(It can get a little "crowded", in the back, though!)

Doc, Doc, Doc feeling a little cantankerous this morning huh

By the way its reprimanded. You reprimanded all of us.

Just how do you figure I was supposed to get those 3 or 4 yards of horse manure to my gardens..... taxi??
You're probably too scared to get any on your hands never mind your truck.

We had a station wagon when we were kids. All five of us were allowed to sit on the tail gate and ride around. I was around 5 or 6 at the time. (hang on tight)

Many items we currently use have evolved from the original intent.

Look at cell phones, and the pc's we are using. Is it wrong that someone doesn't use a cell phone for talking only?

BTW, my truck 2010 F350 XLT srw, 6.4l auto. Only add on is a ladder rack. Used 50% as a daily driver and hauls anything I need. Do not haul loose stone, mulch, dirt... much easier and cheaper to have them delivered and move the pile with my Kubota (diesel).

Did I need it, no, I bought it because I wanted one.
