Do you own a pickup truck?

We’ve never asked the question before after about 12 years and more than 1,500 polls. It’s time. We have a feeling a lot of you will answer yes to this one. So here we go — do you own a pickup truck?

We invite your comments, as well as the answer to this question: “Why did you choose your particular make and model?”

Stand by: It could take a few moments for the poll to load.

We have a 1995 Dodge Dakota long (8′) bed and an 8 cylinder engine. It’s a workhorse. Still under 100,000 miles

I own a 2020 1500 Silverado with the I6 inline diesel. What a great engine and 30 miles per gallon on the highway, 17 miles per gallon when towing.

Yep, 1997 Nissan 4×4. Got it used (very used) and did a lot of work on it. Now with 200k it is as good as or better than the $50,000.00 plastic junk they sell today. Works a an everyday driver a TOAD and a back country explorer. I Love My Truck (Mac Davis).

Have pretty much always owned a pickup truck from the mid 70’s. First one was a ’69 Datsun with a bolt-on canopy and a chunk of plywood on the rails on which my sleeping bag rode. My first “RV” as well!

2007 Honda Ridgeline RTL, 233K+ miles. Daily driver. Also have a 2015 FR Sunseeker 3170DS for fun!

Still driving my 06 Dodge/Cummins with only 200K on the clock. Would love to have a new truck, but not at the 60,000 dollars it would cost to replace the one I have

And one that is properly sized, maintained and licensed for the rig we pull!

I have that same color but 2017 Longhorn 6’4″ box with the Rambox. This truck is perfect for what we use it for. Only thing I am wanting is Android Auto but I am not buying another $50000 truck for one feature.

Yes, not far from the one pictured. It is my wife’s work truck and is a 1959 Chevy Apache

Howdy All;
Have a 2004 F-250 with the @*^&% 6.0L. However, made a worthwhile investment
at a shop called Bulletproof Engineering in Mesa, Az. They did a “Level 3” and eliminated
as far as I can tell, all the ‘Bugs’ that were there. Best truck I’ve had and there have been
a few.

“They say” that once you get the nasty old 6.0 “bulletproofed”, it’s a fine engine. Bill Hewett at is a firm believer in them. Enjoy your emissions-free diesel. I’m envious.

I learned to drive in my Dad’s 1968 green Chevy pickup. Yes, it was a stick shift. My dad said if you can drive a stick shift you can drive anything.

My first pick-up was a 1956 F-100 with a 283 Chevy V-8 and a 2-speed tranny. My 2nd was a 1964 Chevy C-10 Custom. My 3rd and current pick-up is a 2008 Toyota Tundra, 5.7 V-8, 2wd, 6 speed A/T, Dbl. cab, 6.5 ft. bed. Nice truck. Two or three years down the road I would like to get an F 350/ 3500 SRW or DRW. I’m currently researching which brand will meet my standards.

I’m a Toyota Guy.
My first Toyota pickup was a 1973 Non extra cab yellow truck.
With a camper shell and a pass thru window, 5 of us traveled to Canada pulling a Sherwood Tent Trailer.
I have had many other Toyota sense then, my current Tacoma has 155,000 miles on it.
We tow a 2004 Toyota Rav4 behind our Tiffin Motorhome.

I have one pickup … a 1967 Ford that my grandfather bought new. It can pull a small utility trailer, but definitely not an RV!

We have 34 ..One ton pick-ups in our company and all have been diesels and hands-down the DuraMax GM are the overall the best for heavy loading daily use as our products are heavy..First the Dodge Cummins ..engines were great but the Dodge drivetrains were terrible and lights and brakes were driving us nuts..Next the Fords International engines were terrible on maintenance and fuel costs and paint problems along with fuel systems so bad we kept a new engine in a crated as need all trucks 5 – 6 days a week..We are now on our 2nd group of 34 Chevrolet Dura-Max and found a winner..all trucks are installed with Timbrens front and rear and add load balancing and swaying as they are 6,000 lb. each assistance and keep our legal loads firm and saving our springs & wheel bearing wear & tear..Buy GM as we have proved that by keeping accurate fuel records and maintenance it’s FACT..Timbrens are used on snow plows by states and never rust as they are 1″ thick coil shape HARD rubber and hollow in construction made in Canada but we buy from a snow plow installation company in Kentucky..relative inexpensive is carrying heavy loads and no ride effect is unloaded as installed when truck is totally empty and leave 1″ space for empty ride quality but when loaded ..they are a winners..Less than $200 for rear and fronts vary..easy to install..we install ours without taking the wheel off..Hope this helps..

I’ve owned the following pickups: 3-Fords, 2-GMCs, 1-Toyota and 2-Chevy Silverados.
With this much experience I can tell you that my two Chevy pickups have been the best, just normal maintenance and go. I had terrible issues with the Fords, the last one I managed to keep running 6-years before my family all said get rid of this thing and think about another brand. My current pickup, a Chevy Silverado LT K1500 Crew Cab, I’ll probably keep forever it’s that awesome. A man has to have a truck as my wife is fond of saying, and I agree with her.

I’d be lost without one.
My first truck was a 54 Dodge in the 70s.
63 International in the 80s
In 1990 I bought a 77 Ford 1 ton 4X4 for $170. It’s a little rough around the edges now but it still plows and tows anything I hook to it.

I purchased the F-150 crewcab with the 3.5 twin turbo and ten speed from Enterprise rent a car. I was looking for the almost non existent Ram Eco-diesel pickup.
