I haven't seen a thread on here about this, and if there already is one, I apologize in advance.
So what I wanted to see was how many of y'all out there use their PSD as a daily driver? If you do, daily towing (avg. Gross wt.?), or just to and from work and groceries? If not, how long does she sit in between runs, and what do you use her for? How many miles/mods/tires, etc? How do you feel about running/not running her as a daily driver?
The reason I'm interested in knowing this is because I use mine as a Daily Driver, and during the summer months (i live in Charleston, SC so my summer months start in April/May and end in Sept/Oct.) i occasionally tow the boat. But mostly groceries, joy riding (less than 10% of the time), and work work work. Where my concern lies is in my $56K machine (didn't pay that obviously) that I love more than my house/gf/etc.--i feel like i have conflicting diesel mechanic angels on my shoulders:
--angel on the left says buy a beater car or a motor cycle so you aren't putting miles on your expensive PSD, and wearing the front end components, etc. out.
--angel on my right says "did you buy that monsterous, awesome diesel truck to stare at it in the driveway, or drive it???" Your truck is tough, and built to drive, not built to sit in the driveway!!!!
I know that it's bad for diesels to sit, but I also know running them requires maintenance and money.
I'm just wondering everyone's thoughts on this topic. Hopefully i'm not the only one out there with conflicting thoughts on the matter. Thanks in advance!!! I effing love my truck!!!!!!!!!
