You know you drive a hardbody when you cut your speedo needle down shorter...and then super glue the two broken pieces back together so it is straight again. And that glue gets all over your fingers too. I've even seen people glue a matchstick onto those broken-off needles, but you have to take off the needle first LOL.

Sorry to pop a bubble here , but mine did leave high and dry when on the way to a job the damn fuel pump quit. I walked back to the house got the chevy and the towbar and drove my rolling toolbox to the job then home again. Do you know how many darned different fuel pumps there are? Too many.

But that was the only time ever. Mine is also a rolling Johnny Cash song, anything from 86.5 to 97, you learn quick what will fit and work.

You know you own a hardbody when the Pick N Pull guys know you by name and tell you where the good parts are.

When you pull up to the dealership for parts and the guys come out to thank you for bringing it in so they can look at it.

Someone asks you a question at Quora dot com (the Q and A site where I have over 600,000 views to my answers) about WHY Nissan is so popular, and you give it to them straight...including a link back to THIS website.

Heck, yeah. Infamous is king, and Nissan is the same.

You super-glued a nickle behind the brake pedal to hit the switch, and a penny behind the clutch.

You take your rig out into the middle of nowhere to the highest spots imaginable, beat the holy crap out of it doing so...

Knowing you will probably be able to fix it later anyway.

When people refer to it as "your Toyota" and you no longer correct them.

LOL. My buddy's dad asks, "Which car you drive, the Toyota pickup?" every time I stop by their house.

Lol like I could afford a Toyota truck at the prices they're asking. Up until a few months ago my folks thought it was and I just didn't bother saying anything. Don't get me wrong I am a huge fan of their cars and I have owned 2 of them but the trucks are way over priced for what you're getting.
