Daily Drivers?

Hmm...there was a thread like this in the '67-'72 section, but it never really went anywhere, can't guarantee this one will either, but it peeked my interest .
So...how about pics of your daily drivers?

Here's mine, my '92 GMC Shortwide.




I'm a little curious to see if this thread keeps going or dies.

Re: Daily Drivers?

The wife's on the left. I usually swap between the 99 2dr tahoe (4 sale) and 98 z28. The truck stays in the garage for now and used when needed for a truck.

Re: Daily Drivers?

My last (4) dailys in order from 2008. I guess I have truck ADHD. The '99 is current but has yet to be modded...stay tuned.

Re: Daily Drivers?

My '94 K2500. It works on the farm, pretty hard some days. Pull water tanks, seed tender, pipe trailers, car trailer, etc. with it. Some days I'd like to upgrade to something with an 8.1, but this one is paid for and gets the job done.

Re: Daily Drivers?

I'm definitely liking what I see. A lot of nice trucks. I guess there are a lot of us that have projects for daily drivers

Re: Daily Drivers?

I drive too much to be able to afford a truck for a driver, so I roll around in my Caddy.




My wife doesn't do much driving, so she gets to roll around in the bus.

Re: Daily Drivers?

Here's mine, The x-cab was my daily for years but it was getting too cramped in the back for the kids so I sold it and bought the crew. It will soon get an altitude adjustment similar to the x-cab. The Tahoe is the wife's.

Re: Daily Drivers?

here is my i guess you can call it a somewhat daily driver... that is when im home, it gets driven a few days or so every 6 weeks. and now that i can drive the burb again, it should hopefully be driven just as much. so i guess you can say they are both daily drivers

Lol, it's gone a long way from how it started. No updates for a month, but our last update was a pretty big one, I'd say

Re: Daily Drivers?

JB, how are you liking the SS wheels? I was thinking about getting one for my spare. Are you running 60s or stock 235's?

275/60s -- I love 'em...my old eagle alloys were in really good shape, but kinda out of style. These are classic.

Re: Daily Drivers?

This is my daily,when I bought it.I have boxes and boxes of stuff for it,and a fresh engine on a stand,I'm hoping to spend some quality time with her in the shop this winter.(I'm a farmer like many other members here,so my only free time is when it's too damn cold to do anything else)
When all is said and done,I'm hoping for a blue version of JB's truck.Just a clean,low,solid driver.
