    Ford E-250 extended cargo van – can slide 12′ material, 4×10 drywall INSIDE.
    Nice on rainy days to have the materials get to the site dry.

    I have a 2006 dodge Dakota with 5 speed manual and I love it especially hauling big loads of lumber .
    I also have a A-B car for running around šŸ™‚

    A van like that would be great for hauling materials Phil. That’s one drawback that I find having a truck with a 6′ bed is getting materials when the weather is nasty. I have a 5×10 cargo trailer that I can use when the weather is bad but if I’m just picking up a sheet or two of plywood it’s a bit of a pain to hitch up the trailer and take it along for such a small load. I usually try and time my material pick up with nice days if possible.

    What year is your Camaro John?

    Nice! Oh by the way John, I saw one of your bird houses in the latest Kreg newsletter that I got by email. When I saw the pic I thought “I know who built that!”

    I drive a 2006 Dodge Dakota . I like because it is pretty cheap on gas and I can still take a pretty big load .I also like the extra space behind the front seat for when I need to go shopping .

    That truck is very overloaded. Impressive that it could handle that much.

    05 Ford E-150 van. Like having most of my tools and hardware with me and not having to load and unload all of the time. It has a full rack system. Cana still haul 4×8′ goods just have to stand them up on end.

    I think that would be the ultimate for me. I’ve flipped between getting a new truck with a topper or just going for the full size SUV. Since I need something family friendly I’m starting to lean more to something like a suburban.

    That can bend the tailgate bolts where the tailgate straps are connected if your not careful.

    2001 ford ranger step side bed. I like the ranger but it doesn’t have a ton of room. I am considering selling this one and getting the standard bed ranger because it is 8 inches wider.

    My ‘work truck’ is a little shopping cart that little ole ladies push to the grocery store. Not the store’s carts, just those little upright thingies. šŸ™‚

    When I have to haul appliances, drywall or other large items, I use my SUV.

    It’s nice to live where I work. I don’t have to store tools in my vehicle.

    Pat that is the one thing that I hate is having to keep all my tools in my truck. I am not wealthy enough to have multiple sets of tools so I keep most of them in my truck. Drives me nuts when I am doing projects at home. Some stuff is kept on the work bench and other stuff in the truck.
