    This was my favorite day last winter ! It was amazing out nice crisp 15f morning and no breeze. The boots where crunching and I was loving it ! Then I tried to drive out of the field and discovered the truck needed 4 low. It ended up walking out of the field without the pedal needing to be used. Lots o fun that day I love that truck !

    Gets 8mpg and i can fit two cords in it easy, more i bet if it had sides. But i burn half waste motor oil and used atf so im paying for more like 16mpg of diesel which is almost as good as my powerstroke thats fits only half a cord in the short bed. And i bet my old jeep pickup gets half of that fuel economy yet. So yeah, its pretty good gallons per cord in comparison.
    i dont use it too often to haul wood, only when im making a dedicated run for a substantial scrounge. It a pita to lift logs that high!

    That truck's a beast. Sorry you had to part with it, buddy. Seems to have served you well. Glad to hear it's going to another Hearthy.

    If you removed those rear doors on that Dodge you might be able to "Ram" as much wood in as that GMC has on it.

    The wife use to use the truck to drive back and forth to the university (she bought the thing on her own) where she was a asst. prof before she went back for her PHD now i got stuck with the truck.

    This is a pic of about as much work as that truck does.

    Swap the boat for a dump trailer and you'd be all set. Wish my wife would stick me with a Cummins. Wouldn't hurt if she had her own tractor either. ;lol
