    Nothing better than zipping to the store, and zipping back in about 10 minutes, LOL.

    Lol, it has had the bed full of rock too, has a heavy plastic bedliner, didn't get a pic of that lol!. Been used in a few moves, and has towed cars from TX to OH twice. Just turned over 60k miles.
    Yes, '87 Buick GN, thanks!

    Yeah mine does the odd work too. Has been known to have a load of lumber and tow a trailer load of bark mulch (2m3) at the same time even!!! Not that it noticed.
    Has to justify itself. Was part of deal as I had to borrow $10k to get it. LOL

    Not proud of this....but, drove 5hrs to purchase a 273 and transmission for a Dart project and after we loaded the engine and transmission the man asked if we wanted any thing else.... Of course, we wanted everything else! We loaded engine, transmission, heater box, steering column, leaf springs, k-member with all the suspension components, rear differential, rear bench seat, front bucket seats, 9 wheels and tires, and a box with all the mounts!!! Obviously, had we known all of this was here we would have brought a trailer! Once I realized what was happening as he began pulling the entire drivetrain out I tried renting a uhaul but everything was already closed. So we absolutely abused the truck for 6 and a half long hours... Not proud of it but we managed to load, make the drive, and unload without even a scuff! They are still Dodge trucks at their core!!

    Good Grief, the only thing you don't have in the bed, is the kitchen sink, LOL! Gorgeous truck BTW. Before I bought the truck I have now, I had found a Red QC 2005 in North Charleston. I'm here in Savannah, and had planned to drive up there to buy it. The actual day I was to go buy it, the lot called me and told me it was sold. I was pissed because I didn't put down a deposit earlier in the week. So now I'm stuck with a black one, which isn't a problem, other than black shows up every single scratch, and damn hard to keep clean.

    The only thing my truck has had in it since I bought it, is pine needles from the trees. Seems to be able to handle the weight of a dozen or so needles...LOL.
