What do you use your truck for?

Saw this on another forum thought it was pretty cool (may already have this thread).

My truck is a 08 F-350 srw sc/sb lariat. It gets me to and from work (32 mile round trip 6-7 days a week) other than that it sits we drive my wife's Land rover 99% of the time. In the winter I tow my snowmobiles and summer time we load it with landscaping stuff (mulch, dirt etc) in the 9 months I've owned the truck probably used it twice where my old 1500 would have struggled lol.

It is, I feel for the members on here that have been having unresolved issues with theirs. The member on here that goes by f250ghost is at the point of moving on to another brand of truck and according to his latest post, the dealership is at fault

My truck is just my spare truck and the only time I really use it is to make the 500 mile trip to Lake Michigan. Other than that I get it out once or twice a week just to keep it running. It had about 100k on it when I bought it which I didn't like but in a few years I should be all caught up with everybody.

Work/play. During the week it's hooked to a utility trailer almost 100% of the time. Wednesday I go to truck night with all the diesel guys at a local restaurant. Friday night I'm at the drag strip watching usually. And the weekend, towing the sea-doo's, yanking the My 2013 Polaris RZR s around, and sometimes working some more.

Oh and I use it to pick up the ladies

Daily driving 99% of the time. Towing the boat is why I need it though - that and I always seem to find a need for it
