This much. I was making a delivery today, and decided to show what 1/6 of a real cord looks like tossed in the back of my pickup. The wood was previously measured out to 4' tall by 4' wide by 16" lengths, which is 1/6 of a real cord (1/2 of a face cord). The box of my truck measures 5' wide by 6' long by 16" deep.

A full size pickup can hold about twice as much, tossed in.

Nice 'Manche!

Here's mine:

I'll be hauling my first load of wood this weekend. Hoping I can fit a rick in there since it's a longbed.

Actually, 16" is 1.33' x 4' x 4' = 21.33 cu. ft * 6 = 128 cu ft, so it is 1/6th cord like the OP stated.

actually its 16 in x 1.66 x4x4=26.56 5=128 cu ft or 1/5 th "16in. to the 24in." is 66 percent but what the heck its a small truck load.

How do you get 16" is 1.66 feet? 16" is 1' 4". 4" is 1/3 of a foot, so 16" works out to 1.33 feet.

breaking the fraction into a decmial thats all sence the wood cut at 16in. you must convert it 1.66 16in. is 66 percent of 24in.
same as you did for the 1.33 but the # was wrong.

You're losing me man. I agree that 16" is 66% of 24" or 2/3 of 2 feet. 2/3 of 2' is still 1.33'.

2/3 of 2 ft is 1.66 your figureing the 8in. that was cut off the 8 in. would be 1.33

16/24*2' gives me 1.33' everytime I punch it in on the calculator.

Yes, I agree, and .66 times 24 is 1.33'. To convert 16" to feet you should be dividing 16/12 which still gives 1.33'. You can't just divide 16 by 24 and then add that to 1'. Math just doesn't work that way.

24= 2 feet , not 1. you still need to divide .66 by2 , which equals .33

CT mike is right. You have 21.33 CF right there.

4 feet x 4feet x 1.33 feet (16" is 1.33 feet) = 21.33 cubic feet.

on edit: woops, while I was making for dang sure that I got it right you all figured it out.

Ha ha ha! You guys are too funny! Trust me, I've figured the measurements several times over the years, and it always comes out to \$25 plus free delivery.

Nice! 1992? '92 was the last year they made them, I think. Mine is a '91 and they tell me the '92s were leftovers from '91 with a different decal applied. Don't know if there's any truth to it, but they were all built about the same anyway. I bought mine brand-new off the showroom floor.

Mine is an 88 base model with 4x4. Just got it a few weeks ago. Yup '92 is the last year they made them. You should check out http://www.comancheclub.com/forums/ . Lots of good knowledge on there. We'll see if I can fit a rick in my truck tomorrow.

Ah, '88! Mine is only 2wd.

I'm not sure what a rick is, but if you're talking face cord, probably won't get it all in. At least not by tossing it in. That extra foot of box might get you close though.

Quads i've been sitting home all night waiting on that jeep to pull in the drive. What happened? I was going to tell you that you could leave the wheel barrow at home you can just back up and dump it. :cheese:

I had an 89 Comanche 4x4. It was a tough little truck. I sold it a few years ago.

I was there, but your wife told me to go away. Said you had way more than enough wood already.
