    Just a question i have for all of you. Iirc most of you guys bought them used, but do you still try to not abuse them as a "truck." As you know i bought a dodge for a work truck to keep from destroying my $40k truck. Mainly due to it being white, and people at the yard thinking it's a company truck. Definitely not, so get you're nasty asses off of my truck lol. I almost feel like i'm wasting it now, as it sits more than i drive it. Use the dodge 5-6 days of the week, then dont feel like moving other vehicles to drive it when im not going to work. I've taken it a few times in the last 3 weeks. Being it's almost 1/4 of my money for the month, i question even keeping it at this point. Or selling the dodge and just using it as a truck, and hope i dont tear it up too bad. What do you guys do/think?

    Do you have to use a personal vehicle as a work truck?

    If so, I would suggest maybe trading both in on something a little older and not as nice to keep you from worrying too much about tearing up a nice 2014. Maybe get a 09 or 10 lariat and save a bit each month on the payment and insurance.

    just don't tear it up lol

    I use my truck for everything, hauling, pulling, grocery getting, pulling stumps out of the yard and whatever else.

    just take care of it.

    Yes, my work truck is my own personal that i purchased. I'm not afraid of tearing my '13 up myself. I use it for chores and odd jobs i do on my time. It's more of my ignorant coworkers that bothers me.

    That's it, they act as if they have
    no respect for other people's personal items.

    If you look at their things, they have no
    respect for their things either.

    Since this truck is alot newer (and a hell of alot nicer) I'm trying not to beat on it like i did the previous two trucks. It's never going to see mud, unless it absolutely has to. I take it to the beach every now and then but no more doing donuts and hot rodding in the sand. Smart move though with the dodge as a daily/beater. Keeps miles off the '13 and less of a chance of tearing stuff up. I'd keep both and make the '13 a nice pretty pavement pounder like mine :peace:
