I picked up some firewood today (1/4 of a cord) that prolly weighed a good 800-900 lbs.

My buddy rode with and we decided to race at the track to only 40 mph.

I beat him, by a nose...

He drives a '05 Ram with the 5.7 Hemi with 73K miles.





Anyway, as always, the truck handled great, could keep steady 80 mph on the highway, and the front suspension handled the logging rode flawlessly to get out to pick up the wood. I'm lovin' that OME suspension

On second thought, it dropped my rear suspension a better part of 2.5-3"....

Anybody want to take a stab at it?

OK, Rockystate, you might want to lay off the Micky D's. Looking at the picture, it even seems you were double fisting it. You are young and all, but that golden arches crap will make you fat in a hurry, then your truck will always ride like that.

I bet the "bed bounce" was gone. Ha ha :D

haha my buddy weighs 300 lbs... he had the large.

I do need to cut back on the Golden Arches as I see two golden lumps forming just above my stomach.

Yeah I like it still... I mean, it's got it's quirks but unless I can trade straight up into an F150 with my mods, it isn't going to happen.

I can't say I'd buy it again without looking at everybody but Dodge, especially a used one with some miles on it, but unless the AIP problem happens to me, I won't be ditching this thing unless a big repair comes along.

The first thing I hauled in my 08 RC TRD Offroad was a 2000lb battery. I didn't even think about it.

that weight probably didn't hurt. Keeps your tires on the ground, and the engine is big enough to not be bothered by the cargo load.

Some good lookin firewood haha.

Ours was $35 though. Can't beat that.

haha, on our last camping trip we went for a wood run and found a clearing that had all the trees pushed into a pile by a bulldozer. Backed the truck up and loaded it like you wouldn't belive! Dropped the tailgate and loaded 6-8 foot logs first until it was about rail height (I've got a long box but with a tool chest up front) then started throwing the 15-20 foot logs on the headache rack (about a half-dozen or so) and then chained up a massive stump (to burn through the night) and drug it back behind the truck!
Didn't get any pictures but I swear it was the biggest wood load I've ever seen with a pickup! And it didn't cost a dime :first:

Is that really a 1/4 cord. Looks more like 1/8. I go cut 1+ cords every summer and have a couple of racks to stack it on. If that fills one rack it would be 1/4 but that is nowhere near.

Anywho, the tow package with the 4:30 gears have better off the line than the Dodge. Top end he would eat you fer lunch, I shut mine down at 115 MPH (open road, sorry officers) and still had throttle left.

REgarding hte window stickers, I ahve teh thin blue line, a War Eagle sticker, and an Old Man Emu sticker. I blurred 'em b/c i'm not actually a cop, but a lot of my really good friends are.

Og, he told me that it was a 1/4. I dunno though.

It stacks about 4x4x(width of the wood - what, 1-2 feet?)

Essentially, we unloaded it from an old Chevrolet and it was about 4 feet tall, one row deep.

turns out someone got a picture of the first load we grabbed. Fewer beers consumed therefore not a big as the second but still a pretty hefty load!
