How high is your trailer bed?


trailer is 19in at the beavertail, rest of the deck is 24in, FC bed height at the rear is 44 inches, so kinda tall. its a 9ft x 7ft bed. Where did you find your 10ft ramps?

it kinda sticks its butt up in the air. it has a 11350 GVW , as it was a fire truck when it was younger. I have not yet loaded it with anything that makes it squat

better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it...( YES this includes CUBS! )

I think we hijacked Bill's post lomg enough. Pm me for any other info.

Sorry Bill.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Paula and I have had a Tacoma on order since early October. We optioned it out with all the bells and whistles. It’s a 4 door Off Road TRD .
The idea is it’s an off road capable pickup for all the adventures chasing fossils that Paula will do while still being comfortable and cushy inside.
Being new and comfy we can take it on long trips and being a pickup we can bring home tractor parts we might find :) and yes Paula is right there with me with that purpose in mind.
This will be mostly her vehicle.
Now if the world will return to normal just long enough for Toyota to build this for us. :roll:

I have never been able see why Toyota thought that particular combination of letters was a good idea. I can only come up with one way to pronounce it as a word.

Ya I know, TURD :lol:, and the fan base for them call’em “Taco” which isn’t much better :roll: but it’s very capable off road, has the best resale, 278hp, 24mpg, 6,400lb tow capacity and a great reputation for reliability.
This is for Paula. We agreed with all she does she needs a pickup but not one of the behemoths that full sized trucks have evolved into.
In fact this thing isn’t much smaller than my ‘99 Chevy K1500 4x4 which BTW is in the garage. I doubt I’d be able to get a new full size pickup thru the door.

“Taco”-ma :roll:
I only know this from watching videos and reading reviews on the Tacoma before we settled on it.
It’s popular with the younger crew. Doesn’t mean you’ll see ours with the big exhaust extension (Fart can) installed.
Though it’s available in colors Like bright blue and army green we opted for silver thinking it’d be classy and conservative, less flashy.
If you get a chance take a new one for a drive. It’ll impress you.

In Top Fuel and Funny Car, the only thing Toyota, on those cars, is the lettering on the valve covers. (and, of course, money)

My father in law counted up & owned 22 Rancheros (the Ford answer to the El Camino) over the years. He was a Union block layer & just wanted something to haul his tools and ride like a car. Every winter when he was laid off he would trade for a new one no payments for 3 months. He kept his last one when he retired finally trading it in on a Bronco.

I'm glad I read the rest of your post. At first I thought he was one of those kooks who buy up a lot of one thing. :lol:
