If so, do you have a picture of you and your Truck Buddy?  I recently found my Truck Buddy.

If you don't have a truck, you can still have a FWB, or Factory Wheelbase Buddy that you can post about

Let's see your buddy!

I work in a town that does a lot of oil field service. I have a crew cab white Dodge diesel. I have Truck Buddies on every street corner!

As EvanB shows, it gets harder to have a Truck Buddy with an older machine.

Most recent truck i had anything to do with is a 2004 crew cab long bed ram 1500 4x4. Maroon laramie trim truck. I don't think it has a twin anywhere. There is a picture of it parked next to my friend's white 04 crew cab long bed 1500 though. His driveway was at max capacity that afternoon.

I'm not sure age has anything to do with EvanB's lack of truck buddies!

My truck's only 10 years old. Maybe in another 30 or so it'll be rare.

No one on my street will ever own a truck. To them it ruins their property values. They are too busy with their G waggen, Tesla, and Bentayga. 

 My truck buddies are other people's gardeners and pool people 


(I own a gen 1 4 door Tacoma).

It's not hard to find a white Dodge Ram in work truck trim, but when I sold mine the buyer showed up in a truck that was virtually identical down to the last option, in the same model year. His truck had some 330,000 miles and mine had 156,000.

The closest thing to truck buddies I have around here are the other crew cab Dodges I own.

Not likely to find another Travelette locally either.

3. My van next to BIL van.

4. 5 of my Buick Centuries (2 hidden in garage)

5. My 98 Camry with my dad's 2 98 Camrys (and 2 more of my Buick Centurys).

My second to the last truck was a white crew cab F250.  I fit in everywhere.  Only difference between it and most service trucks was it was in a lot better shape and was an FX4 instead of a 4x4.

The Gov't Mule is a former Ohio Dept of Transportation truck.  On any given day, on any state route I can encounter a truck buddy. 


As I've commented before, I get waved at constantly in this truck. Often waves from the flag guys at one lane road construction site. Waves from municipal workers.  Heck, just the other day I got a wave from  our County Sheriff .  Not a Deputy but The Sheriff himself.

You see, in our small county, there was a recent news story that as a cost saving measure and as a support to his working deputies, our actual Sheriff is the only one still driving a P71.  All the Deputies are in newer vehicles.

I've yet to come across another crew cab short bed dark blue 3500.  Especially not with a silver cap.  I did park next to a silver chevy once with a dark blue cap and got a laugh out of it.

Rarely, but it does happen from time to time. That's what happens when you buy a vehicle that didn't break 11,000 sold on its best year of sales.

Does it count if I owned both of them? I had two longbed squarebody C10s at the same time.


We encounter twins in our other truckish vehicles sometimes:


A friend and I both bought red 2G CRXs last summer:

When I worked at Year One an IT guy had the same year/make/model Mazda B2000 truck as me. His was an extra cab, mine a regular cab. Otherwise the same. We'd park next to each other all the time. One day I decided to try my key in his truck. While my key would unlock his doors, it would not start the truck (odd). So I'd got out randomly, unlock his truck, pop it in neutral,  push it a few spaces up or down the lot, and lock it back up. Drove him nuts for months.

My friend bought a 1979 Ramcharger a few months after I bought my Power Wagon. Close enough! There are exactly zero 1979-80's left around here except ours.
