its my DD ( and sadly my only car)

i use it to haul around mulch, trees, logs, branch clippings, rocks, and whatever needs to be done.

i also tow sometimes for friends and such.

i haul whatever people want (other kids at school, who there mommy and daddy bought them a beamer so they dont want to scrach it) atv's, dirt bikes, furniture whatever they want for a small price

Being a college kid, I've always got stuff to move around. It's been an immense help having the truck that can hold all my stuff in one trip. I also use it to pull our jet-ski and it was a huge help in getting lumber and concrete for the fence we just put up in the back yard.

It's my daily driver, but I'd be lost without the added utility of having a truck.

My truck was a polished trailer Queen!...

Yeah Right! There is a reason, I need another truck, I used it all the time

Hauling the boat, hunting, hauling the fourwheeler, or just picking up a load from menard's. Just plain handy as all get out.

I usually carry loads of food for tailgates, barbques, house stuff, tools, large broken things, moving furniture, firewood, concrete, and clothes when my sister is kicked out of her apartment every 15 weeks, lol

All this happens about 10 times a year total

i rarely tow anything, due to the fact that i originally didnt want a pick-up, but because my OLDS died i had to take whatever i could get....

but it worked out good, because i'm filming a no-budget student film and actually decided to build one of the sets into the bed so i could easily transport it (its a spaceship cockpit, lol)

I use my truck for important stuff like hauling six kegs of beer, but I also use it my carry my atv, tow my jet ski and occasionally truck a yard of mulch. Oh, and in the winter it also plows snow.
