I bought my 1500 for a variety of reasons, which did not include it being 4x4. But now that I own a 4x4 I feel obligated to get it dirty. It does see dirt five days a week, but I suspect many folks would say the parking lot at work doesn't count. The problem is that it is my daily commuter. I can't afford to start breaking things by hardcore 'wheeling it. I'm sure others take their dailies to the trails and I'm just curious how they manage. Also, how often are you required to go offroad in order for your rig to not be branded a "pavement princess"?
