Can I drive a pickup truck for Uber? I do have an extended cab, i.e. backseats.

    Remember the single biggest expense of a Uber or Lyft driver is the gasoline. Driving a large car will sure cut into your profits.  There is a reason UberX drivers drive the Focus and Prius'.  It really makes a huge difference.

    Remember, to drive Uber fulltime, you would be driving 1000 miles a week.  Do the math.

      yes, do the math.  F150 at best gets 20mpg in a city driving.  50,000 miles a year.  That's 50,000 / 20 = 2500 gallons, which at $3.00 is $7500.

      Comparatively, a Toyota Prius at 58mpg?  50000 / 58 = 862 gallons, which at $3.00 is $2500.

      That's a $5000 a year difference.

    Someday once Uber offers UberPickupTrucks, a service dedicated for moving small furniture, I will sign up for Uber with my Tacoma.

      Tell us more here. What cities do you support and how many do drivers do you have. 

      Too lazy to click.

      Also, is it on demand or do I make an appointment

    So an extended cab truck with suicide doors isn't acceptable?

      Suicide doors still give your truck a four-door, right?  So as long as you have four seats in the cabin, I think you'd qualify.

    I take UberX almsot daily and have never gotten a pickup truck. This just seems strange to me though I guess you could do it.

      Yeah, I haven't either.  Over 500 rides and not a single one.  Then agian I live in a city.  If I request in middle of corn fields of Iowa, I'd probably get my fair share.
