Here's mine. Don't laugh. It's 3 blocks to the ramp and it never gets unhooked. Just gets backed into the drive. I like the three on the tree!


Can't forget my ice fishin truck.


Nice lookin Z71you have there. I've always had chevys for work trucks, this is my first doge. Hope it lasts awhile.

Peace Man!

I like the ford. I used to haul wood w/ my grandpa, and he had a seventy- something f-100 with a straight six and three on the tree. looked like yours. had wood heaping over the cab and she would still go. the 300 straight six is indestructible, shame they quit making them.:) nice dodge too

I like 'em all...have you guys ever noticed that when you add another vehicle to the fleet, the other ones get jealous?craphittingfan I have constant squabbles, everyone demands attention...I guess it's therulez! For me, the best vehicles are the ones that are paid for, at least for right now..idea_2:)

I've noticed too that the others get jealous. Mind you I have 6 babies (4 running trucks and 2 boats). Its an addiction, got hooked in high school. Better than some other addictions though I guess, but still just as exspensive.

I have a hard enough time keeping up with 1 truck, 1 boat, and 1 car. :(

My personal best is: 5 kids, 3 cars, my 1ton van, the boat, a race car, and a business.

No wonder why I only get 4 hours of sleep at night.

I'm not that bad, I have one Jeep, one car had 2 but sold the other, my boat, my business, and another expensive hobby-luckily my hobby is also my business. Of course they are all big money pits. oh heres my Jeep, only shot i have right now http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/8049/jeep3wd0.jpg

Well I'd love to say I still have 4 running trucks, but after a very long story I am down to 3 running trucks. I had to scrap my Blue Ford after I attempted to sell it to a roofer of mine and he destroyed the truck mechanically. 1992 F150 that I built up decent. To put it back on the road we are talking about spending approx $7k. Needless to say the guy doesnt work for me anymore, and I can think of much better ways to spend $7k, like say on my boats.

You can see the Tahiti in the garage in that picture...

I dont know how much money I spent on trucks ever since I got my license. Here's some pics in chronological order (more or less)

1978 Ford Bronco 351M, 4spd, 35" Mud Terrains, boxlinered interior
1992 F150 4x4 302/ZF 5spd/205 T-case TTB Front/9" Rear, was I6 and 2wd
My current Tow Vehicle: 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Dirtymax

I still have all of them, plus a couple more that I dont have pics of.

wow how much does each one of those round bales weigh and did i count 14

Each bail is 1200lbs, and there are 15 on that trailer (one row of doubles on top). Add it all up that load tips the scales at like 24,000lbs. I hauled 3 loads like that of rounds each year, and the same trailer with about 300 small square bails.
