My daily beater and hunting truck is a '91 Toyota Pickup. 341k miles, and still going strong. She ain't real purty, but she gets me there.

My "good" truck is a '00 Silverado, and she only gets the nod if I have extra people and crap to haul to camp. That's the family truck, so i'm trying not to beat her up too much.

I also have a Koplin gun mount for my KLR650. I don't take that as often as I used to, but she's great for dove hunts, or goose hunts when I "accidentally" left my blind in my brother's truck the previous hunt. That's also a good ride for turkey, if I'm not using decoys.

2009 Silverado 1500 Z-71 ext cab. It's my daily driver and my tree farm truck and my trailering truck and my huntin' truck.

It takes me to work. It hauls whatever. It works our Christmas tree farm. It's been gonads deep in Wyoming mud hauling out Merriam's gobblers. October thru May I run BFG Mud Terrain T/A KM's (the originals). It will go just about anywhere if you have the grapes to not let off the gas pedal.

Somebody ask me to post a closeup pic of the F-150 ramp attachment. Well, here's two photos. That brass "stopper" with the screw in it is all my own "engineering". The ramps wanted to slide when loading if the truck wasn't flat. So I went to the local hardware store, bot a piece of brass pipe, cut a grove so it would slide in the bead, threaded a hole....and now I have a permanent "stop" for where the ramps go. I also use these stops when I put the ramps on and the ramps don't move.

2009 Tundra with 205000 miles and going strong. Yeah it's scratched form one end the other from being in the brush and log roads but it's a truck. It is my everyday driver for work and anything else from firewood to lumber to going fishing.

My almost 2 year old lab pretty much took ownership of the back half of the cab though but he loves to go so.....

Picked up a 79' Jeep cj5 a couple of years ago for a back up hunt/trap rig. Love it.

2003 Silverado, tons of dents and scratches, runs great, 300K miles. I love a truck where you can load the bed from 10 feet away, and not worry about it....

My previous was a 2003 Dodge Durango that I bought new and hunted out of it for 14 years. The body gave in, but the drivetrain was still going strong when I sold it. I picked up a 1994 Toyota Land Cruiser in December 2017, with 295K on the odometer in surprisingly good shape for a decent price. I'm still baselining it, and have a nice project list for this spring and summer, but it has been a beast in the woods. Not many places it can't go, and due to that, not many places I won't take her. I added an LED light bar to the roof over xmas and am in the process of building and installing a roof rack for camping trips and hunting. The third row of seats are stored and the second row stay folded up so I have the rear organized with my hunting bins and have hangars for my hunting packs (hunting, predator, & cameras). Once the roof rack is on, I'll be able to load my stands/sticks on the roof and still have room for my chainsaws and tools for clearing at the end of summer when the time comes to re-hang them all.
