    Love that! I had an '83 Ramcharger with manual hubs. That was the very best deep snow car we have ever had. Perfect for Tahoe winters. Never once had to wait for the snow plows to go anywhere. Always liked the looks of that generation of Dodge trucks. Not a fan of the Peterbilt styling they use today.

    My 2000 F350 7.3 diesel, 6-spd manual, with a few modifications done... it makes a good farm truck.

    I no longer own a truck, but here's a picture of one that I owned for a bit and very frequently regret selling. Sold it 3 years ago to my neighbor because I needed a car with better mileage for commuting to college. Boy was that a mistake, older economy cars are junk. I've offered to buy it back for more than he paid, but he likes it too much. I told him to contact me before he sells it. I see the truck almost every day, and it still looks just how it did when I sold it, and last time I talked to him he had only put 1k miles on it (104k total).

    Truck is a '95 F-150 w/ the 4.9l inline 6 and 5 speed manual. 2WD. Power everything and cruise, was great for road trips.

    Ha! Nice choice in cars, my brother!

    I bought my Chevy K2500 Silverado new in 1994 and it still purrs like a kitten with 150K miles on it. It's got a 350 V8, five speed manual tranny, cold weather package (I lived in Wyoming when I got it), towing package, heavy duty cooling systems, etc. and has been literally flawless in all those miles and years. I put a new clutch in at 100K and the only other stuff I've done to it is routine maintenance. I use it like a truck, too, chained up all 4 wheels and driving through four feet of snow with it breaking around the windshield like a bow wake (wish I had a video of that!), towing trailers (campers, flatbed for firewood and bikes, etc.), hauling anything and everything in the bed, grinding up NASTY roads, or flying down the Interstate. This truck has been amazing.

    Heading south from Lander, WY to find some dry roads to ride after a long Winter:

    Moving from Wyoming to Virginia, one last stop at one of my favorite riding areas to shed a few tears (I sold my dirt bikes when I moved, heartbreaking...). I had two Beemers and all manner of other crap on the trailer and the bed and cab stuffed with tools and other heavy (expensive) stuff and the truck went 2000 miles in two days flawlessly and averaged 17 mpg. I love that thing:

    And speaking of Mazda3's, I love this car! Seven years old and 150K miles, flawless mechanically and a hoot to drive. It hauls kayaks, bikes, furniture, etc. without a whimper and gets 30 MPG whether I drive like a hoon or a grandma. Off for a ride in Heaven, 20 miles from my house:

    [​IMG]

    I was looking at a new Mazda3 recently and was dismayed that the bigger engine is only available with a six speed auto :cry. However, I learned that the 2015 models are going to have a six speed manual with the 2.5 liter engine, so ZOOM ZOOM!!! That will be a fun car... :D

    I found another photo of my favorite truck doing triple duty - we use the motorcycle as the shuttle vehicle for river floats.

    I don't know how people can get by without owning a truck.

    Picked up last week as a downsizing, project truck:

    [​IMG]

    Replacing our 93 F350 crew cab dually with the 7.3 IDI engine in it with this 95 F250 extra cab 4x4. Don't need the full cab anymore as it's just the two of us. Going to downsize the 3 horse trailer to a 2 so don't need quite the towing capacity either.

    Needs a head gasket (or two perhaps) for the 460. We'll see how the rest turns out.

    Wow!...some really nice trucks in here!


    A few months back, I traded my crewcab Duramax for this...



    [​IMG]



    I bought the crewcab for certain reasons...that never transpired. With the gooseneck attached, it was like steering an aircraft carrier, around the Ranch. And, most of the time, I was the only person in the truck.

    So, I guess this is my version of "downsizing".

    The steel rack didn't survive getting rear-ended by a truck (not a pickup truck) at a stop light in NE Oklahoma this January.
    Do I win anything for ugliest truck?
