I was hauling a couple yards of mulch in mine this weekend, its a pain to clean out though. Thats how mine looked with a ton of metal fencing in the bed lol, the suspension was groaning big time.

Seriously! I haul mulch, sod, patio stone, boxes, anything you can think of. I like to keep my truck looking good play with/in it and use it.

Yeah, I wouldn't have bought a truck if I wasn't going to use it to haul. A few weeks ago I filled the bed up with 3/4 minus since we have a huge mound of it in the yard at work. That and wood are the only things I've hauled with this truck.

I almost always use the trailer. Its so much easier to load and unload it a foot off the ground instead of way up into the bed. Also last time I had dirt in the bed I accedently scratched the fender with the shovel.

talk about using a truck for what its made for... "treating a truck like a car" seems to be what your purpose is. i take care of my truck sure... but i'm not gonna spend hours polishing, detailing and buffing the paint by hand.

I dont want my truck looking like ****, so therefor if I can avoid scratching it im going too. I dunno if you know this but I paid $14,400 for that truck. Im going to baby it and treat it nice so it lasts me a long time.

i suppose if i baby'd my truck, it'd still be stock. everytime something breaks, stops working, gets torn off, or crushed- it usually will be replaced with something of higher quality or completely different. so my hats off to you.
