it wasn't a knock toward you, you obviously will use it. i see trucks all the time that you know they never went off road because they are perfect paint, chromed everything, seems incredibly pointless, because to me it just makes the truck harder to use as a truck.

They also don't use them as trucks either, just pavement pounders and mall queens.
