Coloradans are truck people. When we say we love our trucks, we’re not exaggerating. Our relationship with our truck is often like other relationships we have: we depend on our truck, and it depends on us. When you love your truck on Valentine’s Day, it’s a nice way to acknowledge all the things our truck does for us throughout the year.
Your truck doesn’t ask for much so this Valentine’s Day, show your truck a little more love by being grateful it’s always there for you.
When something (or someone) is dependable, we can often take it for granted. Valentine’s Day is a great reminder to pay attention to your truck’s well-being:
- Does it need maintenance?
- How about your spare…is it in good shape?
- Could your truck use a thorough detail?
It’s always good to take to reflect on all the good your truck does for you. It’s a valuable asset that makes your life a lot better.
Here are some reminders of why you love your truck.
1. Your truck protects you
Your car is a set of body armor on wheels. Could you imagine flying through the air at 70 MPH without the protective shell of your auto interior? You would be as dead as a bug on your windshield.
2. Your truck helps you earn a living
Let’s face it, your truck makes you look good. But it also helps you earn a living. Even if you’re not in construction or one of the trades, your truck brings YOU to work.
3. Your truck feels like home
Most of us spend a lot of time in our truck and frankly, it feels like home. It’s nice to plop down in the driver’s seat after a hard day at work, close the door, turn on some tunes and merrily drive home. There’s something so satisfying about it, right?
4. Your truck is always there when you need it (most of the time)
It’s comforting to know that, wherever you go, when you’re ready to leave, your truck is there waiting for you.
There’s nothing like getting stranded to make you appreciate your truck. Be proactive with regular maintenance and you’ll lessen the chances of getting stuck without it.
5. Your truck gives you a sense of pride
Pride still matters.
Pride has nothing to do with ego or vanity, far from it. Pride is setting a personal standard, excellence in all things, and holding to that standard. Your truck is an extension of you.
Want to show even more love for your truck? Keep it looking good. Nothing says, “I take pride in what I do,” like a clean truck.
6. Your truck saves you trouble
Without your truck, you’d be destined to:
- Ride the bus
- Ride a bike
- Bum a ride
- Take an Uber
7. Your truck provides freedom
Feeling a little overwhelmed? Need to escape? Your trusty truck is there, just waiting for you to get in, roll down the windows, and take a drive. Freedom is a wonderful thing.
