My truck is my daily driver but, when needed, the bed has been used to haul furniture, bbq pit etc. I definitely don't want to be without a truck again and I agree, it's the most versatile machine out there and so much fun to drive!

I haul or tow anything I need to. It isn't banged up yet and the factory bed liner seems to hold up pretty good so far. I know when I put my first big dent in the bed it'll be rough from then on out.

My RAM is a daily driver, a tow/haul whatever needs to be moved, the vehicle we take on trips, and as mentioned above the most versatile vehicle. Its my daily drive to, from, and around work.; i work in mantainance for a school/church and im always driving around the property for something. I use it quite a bit for towing and hauling something for somebody (mostly helping people move). It is definitely the vehicle of choice when going somewhere, out of town or out of state, just me and the wife or us and either in-laws and other family (by far the best riding, most comfortable, most space, than the others). I may not use it as much as others but this is my second truck (1st was a Sonoma) and i have always wanted a HEMI RAM truck and i will always have a HEMI RAM truck.... Although a Cummings RAM would be really nice .

Does skidding out logs, hauling big loads of firewood , hauling over 3,000 lb diesel engines, transporting 28' boats, and a 32' fifth wheel travel trailer count? Or drag racing on the weekend and taking 2 other couples out in style, make her too wimpy? Kinda thinking about truck pulling this season, I hear hemi Rams have been kicking some ass.

It's my main mode of transportation, but I do some light hauling on the side. Every once in a while I might do some light off-roading every once in a while.

Sounds like you got a Prius... Just saying..












Just messing around. Sounds like your truck takes the abuse, and keeps on going strong.

My truck is used to haul many different vehicles, odd loads, move housing stuff, pulling stuck idiots out of the snow, and many other things.

The truck mainly gets used as a tool carrier thanks to the Ramboxes. I usually only take my truck out when someone is broken down or needs help working on something.

Other than that I try to keep it parked and drive the wife's car... Unless I feel the need to wash it.
