Spending to much time on your ranger?

I was wondering, everyone I know around here thinks I spend to much time and money on my truck. I only spend about 3 hours a week cleaning it. so in my opinion, not enough. Just wondering if any of you guys get any grief?

My truck and going fourwheelin' with it are my hobbies.

Me and the woman have a silent agreement.....I don't gripe about my 'ol lady spending money on makeup, flowers, and her artsy fartsy crap and she doesn't gripe about my truck =]

I spend too much time working on mine, to the point everyone in the neighborhood think I own an auto maintenance shop. I've fixed weed eaters, bicycles, and vehicles of just about every neighbor around here

Same here except it's like a month long obsession. I'll spend every spare minute researching, buying stuff, breaking, and working on the truck and then I won't touch it, think about it, or barely drive it for a month or two.

Without this website none of us would have GF's b/c they would be sick of us talking about our trucks to them.

I admit...i'm a little obessesed with my truck...I spend alot of time and money on it...but thankfully, I don't really get too much slack over it....most of my friends understand that it's what i'm into....and they always have positive things to say about whatever it is that i do to it...

Same here. Gf thinks I'm odd for joining online forums where people, with Rangers, talk to other people, with Rangers. It's "just a Ranger," but she doesn't understand. It's more of a hobby (+ other cars & trucks), more than a necessity or fetish.

*shrug* I like it...

I don't post much, but I doubt their is a thread on here that I haven't read. I've filled my head with this stuff and when I get some money, time and my truck is off warranty. BAM!

What can I say I'm a network administrator and have a lot of spare time at work.

I definitely spend to much time and money on my truck. I think my schooling suffers because of it, but not my job cause without a job I have no money for the truck!
