You can often guess a man's age by seeing the condition of his square body.

Stock=age 40+

Tastefully built hot rod=age 40+

Slammed to the ground, with expensive air bag system= age 25-35

Lifted to the sky, with obnoxious paint color, gigantic shiny wheels with tires that rival the thickness of a rubber band, and LED lights stuck in places they really don't need to be= age 18-25

That would explain my 19 year old daughter's truck choice. But tires I think she wants it to float.

It's trendy for teenage girls these days to try to copy what teenage boys do their vehicles. I applaud your daughter for being smart enough to see past the silliness of rubber band tires.

So we range (of the people who posted) from 19-76 years old, quite a wide range.
No wonder these pickups keep commanding higher prices with this kind of popularity thru different age groups.
I agree for the most part with @CheesK1500 assessment of how we modify/or not, these pickups within our different age groups.

I guess I’m the exception, mine are beaters/work trucks/snowplow. I do hope to restore/customize my 78 stepside, but haven’t started yet.

56 57 this summer... hell it's just a number. I still run circles around my 2 sons, 32 and 26. One is a chef and the other a rice burner technician. At least I will always be fed, and the truck will always be running. :D

25 - I was 18 when I joined this forum. As Uncle Philly from The Sopranos would say, he was just a kid.
