80% of the miles on mine are from pulling my RV or my boat

Daily driver. I pulled a small Uhaul once lol

I actually rescued a broke Down expedition and pulled it 40 miles with chains lol it was pretty dangerous but cheaper than a tow for my friend.

I think you need an option that is all of the above. I use mine for all those things and more. I haul enclosed trailers weekly ranging from 12ft to 28ft and exceeding 15000lbs (though most of the time i top out around 10000) along with boats and open trailers. I also use it as a daily driver, a hunting truck, driven it across country twice, and taken it offroad it UT and SD.
