So my old man decided that we were going to level out the backyard. The Ranger has been used for just about everything except for hauling pallets of brick, 4x4's, and 2x4's. Those were put in the trailer behind the F-150. I even hauled 240 pickets in the bed of the Ranger and about 30 bags of mortar and cement mix, just not all at once. We built a retaining wall to level out the yard so we can rebuild a section of fence on it. I've hauled almost 20 loads of dirt in the bed of my Ranger so far. I figured some of you guys like to tear up your yards and build stuff like this so I thought i'd share.

The unpainted fence is the neighbors fence. Our fences ran parallel with about 1.5 feet walk space between them (the gap between the wall and their fence). We are going to build a new section of fence along the top of the retaining wall. Where the brick wall and retaining wall meet will be another section of fence run out passed the tank you see in a few pictures. I'll take pictures from the front yard (that will soon be part of the backyard) tomorrow.
