Tool or Toy

Do you consider your truck to be a tool or a toy. Is it mostly for work or play.

I consider mine to be a tool, I use it for hauling lumber, tools, etc. As well as for towing the boat and hunting.

Mine's my oversized leatherman.

Table for cutting, boombox for when i'm working outside, race car, wheelin rig, DD, hauler, beater, show vehicle (to an extent), never ending project... the list goes on

So, I'm in the tool/toy combo.

both, but i can't stand working on it anymore, so now it's more of just a tool. It needs to be converted to a "mud" truck for me to like it again, so thats not happening and i'm trading it in/selling it and buying a real truck

Neither. Not fun enough to be a toy, not strong enough to be a tool nor do I use it as one.
