Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

This is my first heavy haul in my '72, 60 36lb concrete blocks to make a new patio in my backyard, plus other supplies, made about 2400lbs. Was an interesting and white knuckle 5 mile drive from home depot due to the worn trailer arm bushings and panhard bar bushing. It swayed a bit over 40mph, but the manual brakes stopped surprising well with this weight.

Another heavy hauling story, was driving my daily driver (2000 4x4 Blazer) and was also in need of fire wood. Found a guy selling fire wood out of his '68 Chevy Military 4x4 454ci Longbed. I got talking to him for about 30 min and ended up with over 20 pieces of log for only 10 bucks. Completely filled the back of my Blazer, and the next time I pick up firewood from him he said I better bring my '72
'72 Chevy Longbed 327 w/ 3 on the Floor-soon to be DD
'71 GMC Longbed (originally bought project, now parts truck for '72)
'94 Camaro Z28 cam/exhaust/gears
'02 Chevy Impala-DD for now
