Here in NY we'd simply call that 1/2 a face cord and that would be that. Props to you guys that keep those old trucks running.

Yep, that's exactly what it is, 1/6 of a real cord.

Yeah quads that's the nice thing with 16" splits...you can more easily factor them into %'s of cords.

Around here folks may want 14", 20" or whatever. Too long or too short they don't want and are more comfortable dealing with face cords.

Around here that's a \$60 truckload. However if I were ordering firewood by the truckload and you showed up in that little wheelbarrow we'd have to rebarter.

One could simply convert everything to inches, calculate it that way and then convert to cu ft.

48" x 48" x 16" = 36864 cubic inches

One cubic foot = 12" x 12" x 12" = 1728 cubic inches

36864 / 1728 = 21.33

Damn... now I'm getting a headache. Easier still is to just use this online calculator.

If I stack the bed of my Ranger (6' long, 4' 8" wide) up to 14" it holds a 1/4 cord. I can load a face cord in, but the suspension is ticked at that point and I need to have the wood stacked real well and 18" high.

Normally I don't stack it real tight, run it to 18" tall and it ends up being 1/4 cord.

At 18-21 mpg I can't complain only moving 1/4 cord at a time. Specially when I get my datsun truck bed trailer going, that'll hold 1/4 as well. Then I can move 1/2 cord at a time just like the fullsize trucks

At that price, quads, you'd have my business for life if only you lived a bit closer.

I keep thinking there's gonna be a punch line to this question: How much firewood can be hauled in a Jeep pickup? None, because they're all in the junkyard!

JK, I actually saw one of these yesterday and, two minutes later, a VW Rabbit truck!

Looks like it's in pretty good shape yet.

I also used to have an old Jeep with a plow on it like the one in the background of the first pic. Mine was a 1949 CJ3A Willy's with the tiny half cab/pickup box. I sold it a few years ago.

Wife has a Cherokee Sport.

You're pretty close actually. When I bought mine new, there were 4 or 5 other people that owned them around here. Those are all in the junkyard now. Mine is the last one. Once in awhile I might see one in another town, but not very often anymore.

Yes. That's why I had the wheelbarrow along on that load, so I could wheel it back in to where their stack was. I also include an armful of free kindling to those that want it.

When I bought it the only rust (not including surface rust on the body) was the drivers floor board. It is a pretty solid truck for IN. The CJ in the background is a 12yr project that is continuously changing. It will eventually sacrafice the plow to the MJ so it will be back to playtoy status. Its an 85 that I bought my junior yr of high school and been working on ever since...

A math lesson and old Jeep pictures , reminds me of High School when I had a 74 CJ 5 with a 4" lift, modded 304 V8 painted 81' corvette yellow. I also had a math class where we discussed fraction to decimal conversions but never covered the problem of figuring the amount of wood in a Jeep.

By the way nice looking truck rebuilt watchamakalit !

NICE! I saw one of those for sale last summer and the wife wouldn't let me get it. They seem wicked cool.
