Truck Nuts For Or Against?

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Recently an Op-ed appeared questioning why truck owners (see: mostly Men) put truck nuts on their rides. The writer went as far to say that truck nuts are simply “awful.” Do you agree?

Truck Nuts For Or Against?

I think we can all agree that a Toyota Prius with truck nuts isn't right. What about on a real truck though, are you For or Against?

The writer, Nestor Ramos of the Democrat and, is yes not exactly your typical gun carrying, truck driving man. I would even go as far as to say he doesn’t really fit a manly man’s stereotype. Indeed, he says he moved to Rochester, NY to find a city that “values intellect …”.

Right, so here we have an agreeably liberal, Democrat who is calling on men to “neuter your trucks.” His agreement is the following:

We have enough problems with manhood in this country and our little part of it without succumbing to some sort of weird paleo instinct to double down testosterone and turn our cars into jerky dudes. Whatโ€™s next? Beards on the faces of our watches? Hair on our chests of drawers?

Umm… Ok. Apparently, sometime in the past few days, he encountered a set of truck nuts for the first time in Brighton, NY. Let’s just say he was appalled.

Truck Nuts For or Against?

Driver's in Boulder, Co have a different idea of what truck nuts are.

Alright, without doing a lot of research, it is probably OK to say that truck nuts have been around a lot longer than Ramos would like to believe. What started as a clever joke has spread throughout parts of the country. That’s not to say that it is right nor that there is anything wrong with it rather truck nuts carry no purpose besides being funny/clever.

Here at our esteemed editor Jason says, “I’m against them – unless they’re chrome.”

What are your thoughts? Do you have ย a set of truck nuts on your ride or do you find them appalling/overdone/dumb or other?

    I hate those things. How do you explain some moron’s choice for “jewelery” to your 6 year old? I think truck nutz are given away with the purchase of every Dodge diesel, near as I can tell. Since Dodge will finance anybody with a social security number and a pulse, they might as well get a “gift with purchase” too.

    I make it a habit to remove them if possible and dispose of them properly. If they are brave enough to display them, I’m brave enough to get rid of them. Too bad many of them are attached with cables just because of that reason.

      Just wondering, how do you “dispose of them properly?” That makes me think they are toxic. ๐Ÿ™‚

      “since Dodge will finance anybody with a SS# and a pulse” – Good burn!! ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL.

      I’m not a fan either, but what are you gonna do? We have the freedom to do just about anything…even mount testicles to our hitches.

    The level of stupidity that some people exhibit is amazing.
    That is the kind of thing you might expect to see on a rusty old Ford pickup with a gun rack in the rear window.

  3. Mickey says:

    Wholeheartedly agree mendonsy. I see no use for them. You don’t have to prove your manhood. Much less place them in view. I do consider the driver when I see a pair. I really do believe those that hangs their’s out there have none to start off with.

    I have nothing against them hanging down for all to see. I find it is sort of funny and as a joke is all it is. People need to get a life and move on.

    I see them on cycles as well and see no harm, just a joke is all it is as far as my opinion goes. Would I waste my money on a set, probably not, but to each their own, no big deal to me.

    I’ve heard the question “If a guy’s got nuts on his truck, then where’s the d*@k?” The answer is, of course, in the drivers seat.

  6. Megan Fox says:

    Those are pretty disgusting!! Take them off!

  7. Renee says:

    I love a man who values intellect. I’d take one of them over a testicles-swinging-from-his-truck Neanderthal any day.

  8. BriBri says:

    I always thought they were used to better distribute the front/rear weight ratio of the vehicle. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Jason says:

    Anyone who thinks dangling a pair of balls in a colorful sack from your bumper is “manly”, needs to RE evaluate what manly is. As a staight man I like womens genitals. I have enough of my own balls between my legs and don’t need to express a love for man meat on my vehicle.

    I will cut these off the next time I see them and toss them in the bed of the Moros truck.

    • Tim Esterdahl says:

      Note to self, don’t get to close to Jason with my truck nuts. Check.



  10. Real men don't truck nut says:

    Well I personally drive around with my real nuts hanging out sooo.. there’s that
