About This Quiz

When you're a pickup owner, it's not like owning any other vehicle. Your truck isn't just how you get to work, it's how you do your work. It's how you haul your kids around. It's how you lend a hand when a buddy needs to move, how you go on vacation and how you help build your friend's deck. Your truck is one of your closest friends. It's like your dog; a constant companion who makes your life better.

Once owned, pickup trucks are treated differently by different owners. Some pickup owners choose to take exquisite care of their machines, frequently waxing them, gently massaging lotion into the leather seats, buffing out scratches and bashing out the rare dent. Other pickup truck owners see every dent and ding as a badge of honor; battle scars that show the truck isn't all bark and no bite. 

Then there are the ways we personalize our trucks. Very few truck owners will keep their truck bone stock. On one end of the spectrum, some owners will just add a window or bumper sticker, or a photo of their family taped to the dash. On the other end of the spectrum, you have hardcore gear heads who get under the truck as soon as they drive it home for the first time, changing out wheels, suspension, driveshaft and, in some cases, even the electronics.

How you treat your truck is a lot like how you live your life, so let's work this backward: What truck matches your personality?
