I see some nice trucks in background pics on here....

What is everyone using to haul their raptor?

I have a 2006 f150 FX4 3v 5.4 flareside longbed. Black leather and loaded, w/ sunroof
Nothing too special, i know. But its by far the nicest vehicle ive owned.


So, what does everyone else have?

After purchasing a toy hauler I needed a bigger truck. Bought this 2001 2500HD 6.0 off the in law for dirt cheap and under 100,000 miles. It is in great shape and works well as a pull horse. I can't justify the cost of a diesel. I paid under $6000 for this a few years back and it still KBB at above $9000.

Green one was my old one I sold to the son. He loves it. 1998 K1500.

Sounds nice. Did you buy it new? Heated and cooled seats is the 1 option i dont have in mine. Kindof a bummer on extra cold mornings.

I like the nissans, my buddy has a titan and it seems to be a good truck.

Theyre making a deisel jeep? Interesting. I heard they were gonna put a 6 cyl diesel in the new f150. Suppose to make like 440lbs torque, and get 30 mpg.

Man, a rat rod quad hauler would be sweet, but not feasible around here. Entrances to riding areas are too rough for anything that low. Unless im not picturing what you meaning.....

Not really a low rider rat rod...maybe more like a road warrior or mad max style hauler. i have an eye on a 32 ford that has a bed on the back that a friend of mine has in a barn....if i can just get him to loosen his grips on it.

Thanks. Yes, bought it new from a internet dealer in Idaho, Dave Smith Motors, flew me in to pick up and a great price. I saved thousands. Tell them i sent you!! I totaled my previous blue Chevy, 3/4 HD, 4x4, heated seats, etc, etc. Love those heated seats, not just in the winter, but on a sore back. I forgot to mention, my existing is also 4x4.

Sounds like something I would drive. And everyone get the HELL out of my way, lol. Offer to let him drive it when you're done.

I have 2 '57 Chevy PU unfinished. One is on a '85 Chevy 4x4 frame and 4in lift, 383, 350, short step side. The other I want to make a low rider, extended cab, long bed hauler. I also have a unfinished '34 Plymouth PE, 5 window coupe, suicide doors. 340 Dodge, torque flight, Duster rear end, stock independent front end. Chances are I won't finish any before my time is up.

OK, I'm starting to babble again, stop me when I do that.

2017 Silverado 1500 LTe 4x4 crewcab - There is so much room in this thing! The back seat has room for days. Everyone that has ridden in it says it is one of the most comfortable trucks for trips. I wish I could have gotten the long bed, but this was the one they were offering a 48 hour deal on. I ended up paying almost 20k off MSRP. Hard to walk away from that.

It's funny. I brought it home, and my neighbor was so jealous that he went out a week later and bought almost the same f-ing truck!

Sorry, no pictures and they are both buried behind other projects.

I've had 3 different F-150s within the year :lol: all white.

1st was a lease that I got rid of '14 FX4 Ecoboost hard loaded.

2nd was a '13 short wide 2wd STX with the 5.0, I planned on throwing boost at it to make it a hot rod daily but then the picture of a baby came and had to get back into a 4 door

3rd and current is a '13 FX2 4door ecoboost w/black leather interior heated and cooled seats touch screen etc.

Always had a 4wd but couldn't justify the cost and lower mpg with it when I use it MAYBE once a year and more than likely didn't really need it. Love the eco's, make gobs of tq for a gas and throw a programmer (planning on it sometime) at it and will run most pickups down with ease.
