What does your truck do?

I figured I would see how many people just use their truck to drive it around and look good, tow with it, DD and tow, or use it as a toy.


Mine is a DD and tows my boat around on the weekends.

I put down "daily driver" ...but... the truck weighs 16,000lbs so while it isn't technically towing it certainly is hauling a significant amount.

That's a lot of weight for not even having a trailer behind it!

Mines a DD, and tows whatever I put behind it. From baby lawn trailers to a triple axle 36ft enclosed GN


Speaking of that trailer, 14k

Daily driver here. It's also my toy. Never towed a thing but man do I love driving it. I have hauled some loads of wood around though but that's all.
