Thought I would start a thread to put in pictures of you trucks or cars. Heres a picture of my truck. I have had it a little over a year. It is a 2002 Dodge Dakota Sport. It has the 318 v8. I wish it had the 3rd door on it.

 :-\  That's not so old. :-\    :D

I wish they could get back to making vehicles have a little bit of an independent look.  I miss fenders and such.  :)

Where's your ladder, Adam? :D

The old Ford is a neat looking truck.  8)

I want to get my grandfathers 1947 Studebaker 1 ton pick-up truck back on the road again.  It was a fun truck to drive even if you needed your double clutching boots on.  The 67 horse power six cylinder didn't go very fast but, especially up hill but I could put a cord of wood in the back.  It rode like a buck board on dirt roads you had to have one hand under the steering wheel and the other on top.  The gear noise was a special music to your ears.

Maybe it was that life moved a a different pace back then and now and then I would like to slow down a bit that makes me miss the old truck so much.  Even the 1963 Jeep 1 ton I had for years was a strong running truck.  I installed a Chevy 283 V8 and a 4 speed transmission.  I could still average 20 miles per gallon with it.  One day I got a load of crushed rock 5,100 pounds the old Jeep handled the load well but you had to have a lot more room to stop.

 It's got a 100hp flathead v8 in it and it purrs. You have to double clutch it and that is half the joy of driving an old truck.

Well Adam, back in the summer I had a lot of fun turning this,

 

Into this,

 

A few months before that, we turned the wife's '03 Cruiser into this,

 

I think we're through with all that for a pretty good while.  That's the plan, anyhow.

Jon, that hayhauler brings back some pleasant memories.

Here's my 1992 Dodge 1 ton ctd. Under the hood it's had a Banks turbo and exhaust added to it. Out back is a 9000lb Ramsey winch hidden behind the bumper. Sorry they aren't the greatest shots of it.

I take the plate off when I need the winch. If the plate is on, you would think it's a "normal" bumper.  ;D

I have to ask......

How do you keep the rear winch clean?  with winter snow, summer mud, dust and then the road salt...seems it would be real torture for a winch.  Looks real clean in the pic... ::) ::) ::) ???

Haytrader got it right :D I really don't drive it much anymore. I get it out to do a little plowing in the winter, but it doesn't see much (if any) road salt.
I did have to have the winch motor worked on a few years ago, it was all full of rust and wouldn't  run.  >:( I had a starter/alternator rebuild place open it up and give it a good cleaning, no problem since, but I imagine it will happen again.

Heres my one ton GMC I picked up last summer, had to build a bed for it. It's hooked to my nephew Wade's new 8X16 14,0000 GVW Appalachia goose neck here. We picked it up last Sat at the factory. Immediately took it out to Wooster and picked up some round bales then toted her back home. Man does it pull nice. nothing like some of our home made trailers  :D. The old 6.2 didn't do too bad averaged 9.6 for the trip, considering I had my foot shoved in most of the time  ;D



And oh yeah, IT DUMPS!!!  8)  8)
