I could clean the inside of my truck every day but it always ends up looking like a trash can was dumped in there. I think its dirty always cause the last thing i want to do after working is to pick garbage out of the inside of my truck.

When you run up the curb with your truck while rubber necking to see another LCO's sign on their truck.
When you are at Home Depot with your date, and reading pesticide labels might as well be like reading porn. ok that's bad!

when your truck has more garbage in it than your garage , why is it so hard for friends to understand we live out of our trucks all day......Bryan
