When I had nice, personal trucks like yours, I would get very upset if I found a scratch anywhere. But, with my $35k work truck I get scratches, dust, dirt, etc. in/on it every week. It doesn't bother me because it is just that, a work truck. If you can let go of the personal feelings for that truck, which by the looks of it I doubt you can, then use it as a work truck. But remember, the scratches and dings will be a weekly, if not daily, occurrence. Also, I think it would get old real quick climbing in/out of that several times a day.
