How do I show driving 2 different vehicles to/from work for 2017 in the deductions menu? I drove a truck for 5 mo and car for 7?

It depends on the reason you are trying to include vehicle expenses as part of your return. 

If you are simply claiming vehicle expenses for driving from home to work, then that is commuting expenses and is not deductible

If you have mileage to claim as an employee, then you would use Form 2106 to claim the vehicle expenses.  If you have mileage to claim as a self-employed person, then you would use Schedule C to claim the vehicle expenses. 

Search for ‘Form 2106’ or ‘Schedule C’ at the top of your screen to go to the section of your return that you need. Then TurboTax will walk you through entering the vehicle expenses for more than one vehicle.
