    This spring I sold my 2004.5 Dodge 2500 Ram Diesel and replaced it with another stead :vampire: in our fleet of now two vehicles.

    Behold the turtle for she is a mighty work horse :grrr: It has just 96,000 on it so it is just getting broke in :ahhh:

    I have to admit though today I did go look at a New 08 Yukon but boy is GM proud of those. $52,000 before rebates.

    Either you store some huge, strange looking corn cobs or your monkey cages need to be cleaned cause they are almost half full of big ole brown monkey turds. Nice storage system! I have seen this around here too. Wish I had a couple of those old corn cribs. I have an old 1991 GMC 2500 3/4 ton long box with 286,000 or so. getting pretty gritty but still gets the job done. Don't have a pic at the moment but I will get one for ya. Just brought up the last load of hornbeam and dead elm for the season. Bet we get snow here very soon and the hills will no longer be 4x4 accessible.(at least with a big load of wood).

    we haul our wood with our '99 oldsmobile bravada, and venture into the woods and yank trees out with an 89 S-10 (that I am sure won't last much longer...)

    My trusty '95 GMC Safari just went down the road with 221K miles on it. I replaced it with a 2008 Chevy Silvarado Extended Cab, It should be a better hauler. I also use a small trailer that can me pulled on and off road.

    What I've been using for the last few years. This is some maple that fell on a client's house last spring.

    New to this board but I got some Pics to post up anyway,

    78 Ford F150. bring's home about 15 loads a year give or take, from the family wood land that is 5 miles from my house.

    [​IMG]

    also the ATV's and trailer's that are used for the gathering of wood to a central area for stacking till it's ready to be hauled home by the truck.
    This pic is the front yard of the house where I had an huge Elm taken down by Power and Light company because it was into there power lines. This was in the middle of summer and hot hot hot to be cutting on wood so we only worked in the shade and moved the splitter to follow the shade. took about 2 weeks to clean up.

    I'm still performing some maintenance to the Nissan and the wagon needs a little love as well but here are separate shots of them.

    I bought it this spring and it has been real handy to have. I now understand why they are so hard to find used. It is much easier to load stuff on them then a truck ever could be.

    1994 Ford F-250 extended cab. Big, solid beast of a truck. I'd like a good trailer to go with it, tho.

    Around the farm, I load up the smaller JD 755. I tend to drop, buck, split and stack the wood right where it grew to season it. The next year when it's lighter and easier to move, I haul it up to the house.

    I wish I could find timbrens or some sort of beefier rear suspension for it.

    When they were limbing trees at work last spring I made off with 3 trunkfulls. If you want free heat you have to be ready to go at a moment's notice.

    I have a 2002 neon that is my "beater car" (ok its pretty nice, it just saves gas, it was a cheap salvage rebuild car..) and I have had a full 4sq of shingles in it before... squatted a little bit but I just didn't feel like getting the jeep out and hooking up the trailer.. Not sure how much wood I could fit in it but my bro in law use to take trunk fulls home from my Dad's house..

    Tacoma TRD - Bilstein's aren't very good for weight.
    Most of my wood comes out of the woods behind the house.
