Let's see your pick-up trucks!!!

Why is it so satisfying to spend 3 hours washing your pick-up??

I have had this truck for a couple of years now, originally purchased for camping and transporting motorcycles. Now it is my go to vehicle (since I bought the BMW I sold the Mazda 3 so I could afford luggage) when it's raining or I need 4 wheels.
I really like having a truck. It's a 1996 GMC. I paid only $3200 for it, has a v8 and all the usual options and it's been worth every penny.

So lets see some pick em ups!!

Not much of a picture, but this is my first pick-up. I've had lots of vans, though. It is a 2011 Ford XL Supercab with the six. I bought it last November with 1800 miles on it from a Ford dealer. I went in to buy a new one just like it; 2WD, steel wheels, rubber floors, large cab. I wanted a fleet truck because they strike my fancy. Not a lick of chrome.

I love this truck! I keep it in my winter home in AZ. It came with a cowboy hat.

I have a 2012 XL and I love it. Rubber mats, vinyl seats, I can get in wet after kayaking, or muddy after atving and not worry about it.
