As Tim McGraw put it, "Truck, yeah!" Trucks are one of the quintessential American possessions. They were created to be practical, and as such, they provide a comfort and a flexibility that even someone outside the blue collar trades that made them popular can appreciate.
There are trucks for all sorts of lifestyles now: trucks for cowboys out on the range; trucks for soccer moms battling it out on the mean streets of the 'burbs; trucks for tradesmen who need to keep their stuff with them; trucks for outdoorsy people who lug around a whole bunch of athletic equipment and possibly a tent; and trucks for people who just have a lot of stuff and nowhere to put it.
What does your truck tell us about you? Perhaps you have a large interior to house your family out of the elements. Perhaps you're a total motorhead who needs their vehicle to give maximum performance. Perhaps you're an environmentally minded soul whose electric truck is on the cutting edge of modern technology, and as a result costs you nothing to run and is virtually silent. Perhaps you just love animals and your truck is set up to make them at home with you at all times. Let's find out!
