Spent over an hour I'm pretty sure hosing off the '90 from yesterdays adventures... when I got to the wash station after helping/watching my buddies load up their trailers (my camper is still on the F350 or I would have trailered...) it had JUST ran out of gas, but with the dewpoint last night all the dry mud had rehydrated enough to come off easier...

My credo
built, not bought
Fired up the ranger today & took it out by the field for a couple of pictures in the snow. Walked right through it all with the snow tires & 6 40# bags of softener salt in the back.

moved like 1/8 cord or less of fire wood from the shed to the front porch with the '97... the wife likes using the "gorilla cart" wagon thing which is fine but it takes 3 trips, I wanted a stereo and to only take one trip, both have their advantages... the ground is less liquid than it has been so I went my direction :)

Hauled more vehicles the other day. Such a pain in the ass when they can't move by themselves and everything is a sheet of ice lol.

When I had my k10 on the trailer it squatted the truck bigtime. 14' equipment trailer thats somewhere between 2400-2750 lbs, and the k10 probably weighs 4500 at least with all the snow/ice in the bed. I'm sure I was right at max capacity if not slightly over.

With the truck squatted so much the dash was telling me "service advancetrac" and both the stability control and abs were non functioning. Something to keep in mind. If my truck wasn't leveled I'm sure it wouldn't of been squatted to the point where it's sensors thought it was broken.

1 inch at a time is an awful way to load vehicles. If I ever get my own car trailer it's definitely getting a winch.
Hand crank?
