    70's & 80's I used to hang w/ some friends who were concrete workers & iron workers. That's all they drove.
    All with the pintle/ball combo-hitch, of course. :bmwrider

    Mostly Fords. but that's because Broadway Ford (still in business) worked it. Hard. They were a Truck Only dealer. Now they'll also sell a SUV or two for The Boss.

    Want a regular-cab F-150. In stock, bitches!
    O.K., it's got a few options......

    Want a REAL bare-bones. They can get it. Quick.

    Most of the single-cab duallys are stocked as cab&chassis for contingency. They can have a bed on the back same-day, other options pretty quick.



    I sometimes go there just to touch myself. :lol3






    [Ha Ha! Spellcheck doesn't know what a "pintle" is. The people who write that code never "worked" a day in their lives. :dirtdog]

    BTW;
    I was at a light this morning next to a guy with a NEW track-hoe, on a NEW twin-axle trailer with the axles towards the rear.

    He'd backed it in. All the way forward. That poor truck was tail-down nose-up. :fpalm



    If I thought the light would have lasted long enough, I'd have gone over and slapped him. :bluduh :lol3

    I would swear there was a thread on them, about a year or two ago. When that thread came-around, I climbed up into my Mom's attic, and went digging-around. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. I couldn't find any of 'em.

    My Brother and I had a buttload of 'em. When my Grandmother would ring the dinner bell, and we were officially done running through the pastures, climbing on the hay stacks, swimming in the stock tank, shooting .22 rat shot at the rats in my Grandfather's barn, etc., that was the only thing we had left to entertain ourselves. :dunno



    I was that "weird guy", too.

    When everyone else was looking at the Laramie, Silverado, Lariat, Limited, etc., I was the guy down at the "white truck" lot, looking at the 4X4 regular cab dually with the manual windows and locks. :fpalm



    I have a Buddy who, when it comes to trucks, is the "real deal". He owns a grading service, with a few pieces of equipment and a coupla' trailers.

    But...bless his heart...he loves Bro-Dozers. His current truck is a Ram 3500 4X4 Laramie, with all the goodies...power everything, lift kit, big tires, on-board air, etc., etc., etc.

    He can't figure-out why my little 4X4 flatbed tows so much better than his monster truck. He also can't figure out why he has to air the rear bags, to the moon, to get his truck to "level". I've tried to explain to him that, while all his mods are great for the average Gravel Lot Cowboy, they're not the best for a work truck. He can't seem to grasp that 1-ton trucks come pitched nose-forward, from the factory, for a reason.

    In a sea of bro dozers this is a fresh site. I don't know how the lift negatively affects it's towing/hauling capabilities but it sure as hell looks nice. 20170530_135553.jpg

    Same here except, pipe fitters and welders. My friends dad had a 78 Chevy Crew cab that I though was fascinating, but it was really rare to see one in the wild back then.

    JJ-- I have a bottle of Bourbon set aside for you in my shop. It is one of the ones from a single barrel bottling and is officially my first true all by myself pick. Turned out fine if I do say so myself. Now I just have to figure out how to get it to you. Will be going to Arkansas this weekend.
    Let me know some ideas.

    I feel your pain, JJ: I still wonder where my LGB train set went.

    Check the 9/13 Hagerty online news for the top 25 most popular collector vehicles, JJ-- it's got a favorite of yours in the #1 slot.

    I tried to post a link and got a bunch of gibberish and my patience was tapped out at that point.

    Is that a Kawasaki X2 in the back? I wish I still had mine.

    David, you're too kind. Thank you.

    I flew out of the house, this morning, with not so much as a cup of coffee. I'll get a PM out to you, before the end of the night, and see what we can come-up with.

    Thanks, again. :beer

    Thanks, Chris. I appreciate you letting me know that.

    A few weeks back, I almost typed a post asking everyone (here) if anyone had noticed the recent square-body prices. Man, it seems like (over the last few months) they have really started to climb.


    Everyone has their version or generation of their "favorite" truck...or, at least, every truck guy has their favorite. And, despite growing-up in a Ford Family, (for me) the square-body R/C K30 dually will always be the truck by which all others are judged. :raabia

    I've posted up my friend Dan's cool 70 series Landcruiser before but it deserves another pic after last weekend's efforts.

    With his wife Toni as co-driver they just took out 7th place out of 100 starters in one of Australasia's longest offroad races, the NZ1000. 1000km on a 35km lap split over 2 days. Dan races in class 6 which has few restrictions on mods but has to be road legal. We went into the race aiming for a class win but ended it several laps up on the closest class 6 & the first non UTV home on a course that favoured the side by side ATV class racers. With total reliability from the 70, a very consistent drive, & weather conditions that made having a windscreen a distinct competitive advantage Dan brought his home built weapon in ahead of all the big $ unlimited class buggies & race trucks.

    Cheers
