Default Riding in your truck...

I was wondering...I enjoy the snot out of just driving my truck down the road with the radio up and the windows down...it's just about the best therapy I can think of...anyone else enjoy it like that?

I like just turning the heat on low and having the windows down in the winter time. If you have the heat coming out by your feet it keeps it in instead of taking it all out the window.

during the winter the heat goes on my feet while i crack at least one window. then in the summer they both go all the way down. unless it's unbearably hot, then i use the a/c.

Exactly! I was tempted to buy a Jeep Wrangler just so I can take the doors and top off.

I always have my windows at least partially down, if it's cold I'll just turn on the heat and still leave the windows down. Only time my windows are up are when it's raining or if I'm hauling on the freeway.

yeah i like to just get on the freeway and go. i find it especially relaxing when im by myself cause i live with my girlfriend and she doesnt have a car so im always driving her everywhere. but when its just me alone at night or in the rain i cant possibly be happier. until i look at my gas. haha jk.
