I’ve had a couple Outbacks and loved them. Congrats on being a lesbian like me!
Doesn’t WA just issue them to anyone living in the state? :)

That’s a beauty, Mike. Did you get it from the guy you always buy from?

Ben, no, just a Silverado LT

Chris, yep. Off Corporate lease with 20K

Sepp, just a 6’ bed extended cab....very common where I live. Winters drive 4wd. I am a construction subcontractor, meaning I supply furniture and equipment to laboratories. I have been known to haul material to job sites, sample cabinets to architects, etc. Plus, we have a camper we pull. Once you have a pick up truck I can’t see going back. I fill that bed with all kinds of stuff. Wonderful to go get a load of mulch for the yard and not even worry about it.

You should see the size of the trucks my coworkers drive. It’s hilarious. The only one that actually tows a good size boat has the smallest truck.

No kidding.

I have had to use my dads old work truck almost every weekend for the past 2 months. Hauling lumber for kids fort, many trips to lumber yard. And 2 trips for mulch and 1 trip for fill dirt.

Nice Silverado.

I don't even use my truck for work, but I'll never be without one again, the bed is used all the time for sports gear, yard stuff etc.

My Ranger is an extended cab with 6' bed too, but the Silverado seems much bigger.

Honestly, that’s the case with 99.99% of people I know that own trucks. Including myself. The thing I miss most is sitting up and being able to throw whatever in the bed and just go.

It totally makes sense since he’s moving stuff so often.
But I never understood the downtown accountants driving a massive F350 with six wheels. I mean anybody can spend the money as they please but it seems brutally inefficient to me.

The most amazing thing is that we’re now starting to see F150s here in Italy, in the cities!
Our roads are very narrow, gas is $7 per gallon and the normal parking spot is a good 30% smaller than the average American one (a BMW 5 series is already hard to park), which makes this kind of purchase uniquely idiotic here.

Where you live, I get that. Here, it’s +- hour between major metropolitan spaces, heavy snow in winter, and I need to haul stuff. It’s always funny seeing some goofball loading 8’ 4x4s in his civic at Home Depot :lol:. The four door is because I entertain clients. States are just different. I’d be an early adopter of an all electric truck should the tech support use rurally with all the requisite infrastructure, but that isn’t a reality yet.

Great truck. My Dad is a contractor and drove nothing but Silverado's since the mid 70's.... until recently when he traded his Chevy in for a lightly used twin turbo F150 as he bought a larger camper. That truck ate it's transmissions and timing chain the first month he owned it.... luckily he bout the extended warranty.

I'm lucky enough to have a next door neighbor who "time shares" a beater truck with me for weekend projects.

I had to drive a 9 passenger van (drove my family and my parents for a wedding) in Ireland last June. That was a real chore. I would not want to do that everyday (I remember having a new level of appreciation for those tour bus drivers.). It was less “driving” and more of simply avoiding stone walls and hedges. Wing mirrors were either feeler gauges or folded in.

For me, the Tacoma-size truck works. Big enough to haul around my surf boards and gardening supplies, small enough to park.

I like the idea of a full size truck, but I can’t justify the extra utility versus the extra costs of ownership.

Nice. I find friends and kids call more often when they need something moved... :lol:

My back seat is basically a parcel shelf, but that's ok, I can take my wife's car if I need to move people. My last truck was a regular cab work truck, and having no back seat at all was a pain in the ass at times. The Silverado extended cab is actually roomy for people, which is nice.
