lol, I don't see how people can trash a vehicle that bad, I guess I have vehicle OCD since I care about mine way to much.. Hell I get mad after I wash it and the next day it snows and I have to drive it... I could never trash my interior like that.. I clean mine so much... People sometimes ask me wow is your truck new? "No it's an 02, I just take care of it". Same with my dirt bike, my friends would all trash theres and blow them up, I'd ride up in like an 03, kinda old now but it looked brand new, there like wow how is your's so nice... kinda an example.

I've smoked in both my trucks. No one else ever does and even I hardly smoke but I have a few tricks up my sleeve that keep the smoke smell out. It pretty much never smells like cigarettes and the only sign are the burn marks. Those really **** me off since I never had that issue with my '99 but oh well.... my own dumb fault.

Hell No. lol.

BUT...i do smoke in my chevy(when driving under it's own power). Cigars only. There's already cig burns on the upholstery from the previous owner...so burnin' it up more is a no biggie in my book. lol

My trucks never been smoked in and it never will be smoked in. It completely destroys the re sale value in my opinion, and the smell never completely goes away.

My buddy and I recently went truck shopping for him. We found a near perfect truck for him, but the only problem was the previous owner had smoked in it. No burn marks, but that smell killed the deal for him...and I totally understood.

I've had people light a cigarette after leaving the bar or a restaurant while walking the short distance to my truck. And i've made them wait outside the truck until they finish it, and then some until most of the smoke smell gets off them.

^^ Totally agree when it smells. I HATE the smell of cigarettes... which is ironic since I smoke occasionally... but it's sooo easy to keep the smell out that I'm often told after a year the truck still has the "new truck" smell.

I won't let anyone smoke in my truck. The odd time I might have a cigar or something, but that is it, and it is on rare occasions, or if it is really really cold out. None of my friends or family smoke, so I really don't have that problem. I hate the smell of stale ciggys, and I don't smoke them, so they have no place in my truck.

Well.....

One time, we were out in the woods, and when we got out of the truck we couldn't see each other.

Wait...cigs?

Still yeah, with the windows down and the defrost on.

If you turn the defrost on it helps push the smoke out when you are stopped.

I don't mind. The only person that ever really smokes in it is my bro-in-law. It's usually at 1 in the mornin out in the woods somewhere and hes hangin out the window watchin the tires the whole time so it never stinks. Jus turn off the a/c or heater and he knows to hang it out the window. I never smell it later on.

Yeah I think its safe to say there's going to be no more smoking in my truck, especially since I will be ripping the seats out this weekend and carpet cleaning it all.

Nope, absolutely no smoking in any of my vehicles. Smoking is a habit that starts out by an individual being insecure and wanting to fit in and look cool. I have no respect for it.

I am same way with my interior on my 93.

People are amazed it looks and smells like its off the showroom floor. Not one stain in any of the carpet or seats.

Yeah good piont that stuff gets EVERYWHERE. I'm going to start saying no, if they give me crap I'll dump them on the side of the road somewhere. ha
Amen man, it's your truck and you shouldn't have put up with other peoples' problems in it. It's for the same reason that nobody smokes in my truck, eats it it, and nobody who's more than buzzed rides in it (like Hell I'm going to have my truck smell like puke because of somebody else).
