    I run a 1984 Dodge W150 with 3/4 Ton springs. On a good day I can fit almost a cord in it. It still needs a little work but it's a great pickup for something I put about 5-800 miles a year on.

    My wife and I have been discussing my purchasing a "beater" truck during the upcoming year. When I passed a used dump truck along the road for sale, I said, "Hey, honey! That would be perfect."

    Her response was that if I were to buy it, she would divorce me. LOL

    I've discussed this at work, and it's definitely a gender item. Every male with whom I've mentioned this agreed that a dump truck would be great, probably because all of us are little boys at heart and can't help but think of "Tonkas." Every woman agrees with my wife, and a few have had a discussion on this very subject with their husbands.

    Bottom line: "Truck" means "pick-up truck" in my wife's vernacular. By the way, used tanks are also out, according to her.

    I'm not doing any better than you. For large hauls, I borrow my father-in-law's pickup. Otherwise, for the lot which is literally just around the corner from my house, I just buck and split what I can and put it into my little Saturn Ion with the seats down and an old sheet covering everything. It often takes many trips, but the distance isn't a concern.

    My rig ('81? MTD) for hauling rounds out from the woods behind my house.
    I'm amazed that tin trailer is still in one piece. Especially since I have to cross a low section of stone wall every trip. LOL

    I don't have a hauler currently, well the truck, yeah. But I am fixing to build a 4'x6' or 6.5' trailer to attach to the quad(Prairie) so I can get back to those remote regions..............

    Here is mine, with some of the wood it has hauled so far this summer / fall. I have added removable rails to the sides so I can pile the wood high, a bar across the back rollbar so the wood doesn't come visit me when I am driving, and on the top a removable rack to carry 2 chainsaws, gas, oil, ...
