Who here plans on NOT babying their Cybertruck and will use it for heavy work?

I treat all my trucks the same, they come to work with me and work just as hard as I do, and I don't do bodywork on them when they get scratched or dented. So I'm gonna love driving my Cybertruck around town, no worries about roof rust, because glass doesn't rust, and neither does stainless steel. Dents? Bring 'em.

But I need my truck by the end of 2021. I grow weak...

As someone knifes your tire instead of scratching your paint.
I plan to drive it like I stole it but won't try to smash it up hauling stuff that will screw up the investment. I want it to be the last vehicle I ever buy.

*I'm not fond of the thought of how many people will be throwing items at our cybertruck windows when they see them parked in parking lots. Or hitting the doors with a real sledgehammer (not a dead blow like in the demo). Tesla cams won't do much to identify anyone with a mask and/or hood.

Franz hit it twice. I think the first one he pulled. The second seemed to connect like a real blow to my eyes.

Personally, I plan for it to be the ultimate weekend warrior vehicle. Lumber, lawnmowers, lumber, bags of concrete, lumber, tools, and lumber.

I'm keeping my old truck for awhile to make sure Godot doesn't have issues so during that period I will keep it spotless inside im sure but eventually it has to do real work and then it will smell like an elephant farm inside and look like construction truck on the outside.

I'm a little concern about the trunk bed having those groves that will have dirt caked to it. Luckily a power washer should take care of cleaning without worrying about rust.

Plus slippiness not only on the bed but the tailgate when it is lowered beyond 90 degrees.
But i guess a traction coating can be applied - whether by paint or adhesive strips.

I wont treat it any differently than any other ICE truck i have owned. I will use it to daily drive and haul stuff when i need to. I work in IT so i dont need it for construction type stuff unless im doing work on my house. I expect to use it to haul dirt, rocks, lumber, etc.

The only thing about air schocks is sometimes the stanchions get scratched and the seals leak. For example if a rock flew up and scrape the stanchions, that would be an expensive fix. On springs it doesn't matter much.

I know the truck is badass, but most of it's badassness won't really be put to the test unless it gets treated like a real truck.
It'll be my work truck for construction. Possibly for snow removal if range loss isn't too bad.

I hope to pull an rv with it, approximately 9,000 lbs. I’m still not sure if I will get a tri-motor or a dual motor. I’m probably going to also haul wood in it which means going off road into mud and maybe cross some small streams.

If they offer a standard spring option, I will definitely take it. Air ride is awesome when it works. The best part is no part. Will still take the onboard compressor though. Handy AF.

Plan to primarily pull my 31’ toy hauler, haul dirt bikes and camping gear around during the spring and summer. Rest of the time, it will haul my family around to hockey practices/tournaments and on ski trips. Sure hope it’s a proper tow machine and Tesla installs superchargers off the main highway corridors. I plan to keep my Cummins in case the CT is not up to the challenge.
