OK? You sure it does that well?

Want to race? We'll start with a full tank of fuel and see who can move more bees. A blueberry grove during a thunderstorm should be a good course.
Besides my 98 dodge 3500 12 valve with almost 300K and two transmissions, I also have a freightliner tandem that can gross 54,000. 22 ft flatbed with 4 ft sleeper....my home away from home. But there are places i cant get the freightliner.....so I use my dodge....at 19 mpg or 15 pulling a swinger. As far as Ford goes....like I said a great truck but a powerjoke for a engine. Had a 2001...spent more time getting worked on than being driven and yes I have put two transmissions in my dodge but I have made many trips to florida grossing 21,000 to 27 or 28,000 so I cant complain!
How many tires do you put on that dodge a year? Is that 28,000 pulling your big trailer?
bought my dodge with 320k miles on it now i have 370k still going strong getting it ready to make the winter trip now, have to get new tires on her in the next week or two any suggestions? the more aggressive the better, (its only two wheel drive). regards Nick
Have your welder add about a foot to the frame,and you can put a 12 foot bed on a f-350 or dodge 3500.
I have an f 350 that has a 12 foot bed now (never will have another) and had a dodge 3500 the same way.
I'm going back to the Cummins next time,I don't care what frame it's in!
One thing I also like about my truck is that I can pull honey on a few hundred hive without having to go home in the middle of the day to unload . My father loves his 10 wheeler but its way to much truck for me to drive. I got sick of cutting down trees and putting mail boxes back up.
Here's a pic of a load of orange honey:
and one after I won the "you need a 4X4 bet" http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/g...g/IMG_0029.jpg
Lets go! I can haul 144 triple deep hives in one load. But you already knew that.
P.S. Gonna be at the meeting?
If you guys are going to race I wanna watch. haha.
We need the little popcorn man for this one.Lol;)
who going to tape this event?
Thats true Keith it is an almond thread but if they wait for the berries its a closer ticket price for me though. haha.
Since your da best, DBEST, had to comment on your pic. If you went to six way pallets you wouldn't have had to double stack your pallets, less forklifting, faster, and a safer load. Unless your forklift can't pick up that much. Also I hope the smoker bungeed to your step was temporary and not going down the highway like that. Can you say "sidebox."
My smoker is always there. I hate having a lit smoker inside a tool box, I've never had one fall off if you notice it stayed on while being drug thought the mud. I've tried 6 way pallets, I didn't like them. I move the hives around on the pallets before almonds and right before blueberries to make sure the weak ones stay behind and middle one was a pain in the neck. Also when I was attempting to convert it was cluster trying to load 4 ways and 6 ways onto the same truck, to switch all 2500 in one year would be a nightmare.
I still win dbest. When your bobcat is stuck all nite long. Maybe Greenbeekeeping will come up and pull you out with his swinger just to make it fair.
P.S. I'll be at the meeting Friday . I'll buy lunch
The problem with the swinger is its only 2 wheel drive , 1 front and 1 rear. If you have locker then its 3 wheel drive. I still win...its ok.
