Default Anyone attached to their trucks?

I know we all love our trucks, but is anyone really emotionally invested in their trucks?

I sure am. My trucks become a little brother to me. Except all I have to do is put gas and oil in him and fill up the tires. My truck's gotten me out of so many sticky situations off road, and i can't count how many people i've towed out of spots, or batteries i've jumped. Plus, he's been nothing but reliable. In the lifetime of the truck my grandpa and I have almost been the only owners. The first owned it for a year, put about 5,000 miles on it and sold it to my grandpa for a deal. Anyway, in that time the only problems or repairs have been a water pump, brakes, tires and a side view mirror (taken off by yours truely backing out of the garage)

I love my truck. How about you?

I like my truck, I really do. I love my wife. I have to keep that straight to promote domestic tranquility.

But I have always enjoyed having and using a truck, for my own projects and to help others.

Interestingly enough, I have owned 9 pickups and did some slight mods to a few of them. This Dodge has the most mods of any of my trucks...and I don't think I am done...LOL

I get attached to all of my vehicles, the good ones anyway. My truck is too new right now and, therefore, has not developed any character yet. I still miss my last truck though.

I get attached to all my vehicles too, for one reason or another. Still miss my old Ram, but my current one still looks just as good as the day I drove her home. I had considered trading up even though it feels like I'm cheating if I look at another new truck lol, so I just figure I'll pay this one off and then pick up another one later on owing to the fact that me and my truck are inseparable and what's better than one Ram but two?

I learned a long time ago to never get attached to iron. I really enjoy my Ram, and take care of it as though it was a member of the family, but 'when' the time comes to trade it in, as long as the new one is as nice to drive and looks as good in the driveway, I will have forgotten about this one in ...... seconds.
