Jolene's First Haul

Well folks, here it is. My baby and her first serious haul. I was on my way to visit the local tree remover for some firewood. On the way I stopped by my parents house when I see down the street the neighbor having a tree removed. I decided to stop by and see if they would let me take some home. Things went well, so here it is. Now if I only knew anything about splitting wood. Any help there?

BTW, I know I am preaching to the choir on this, but here goes anyways. This is my first diesel, and boy was I surprised at how well it hauled that load. I know it's not much of one, but if this had been my '98 Ram 1500 we would have had a problem. It just seemed to want more!!!

With only 1680 on the odometer I was quite careful, but with the Line-X I wasn't worried at all about the bed.

She's a beaut, but she's a also a work truck. She'll be pullin my 10,000 pound trailer on a daily basis soon enough.

I figured I would get some chit for calling that a load after having seen some pictures of other crazy loads.

It was enough to lower the bed a few inches, so it was a load for me. LOL I know now that she'll do twice that for sure.

What coincidence! This is my 1st diesel as well and just got rid of a '98 ram 1500 too. I've always been around and used power strokes at work but this the first time I pulled the trigger and went ahead and bought one.

Nice truck! I need to pick up that bed extender too.

I missed my truck dearly after I got rid of it. I traded it for a 2002 Hyundai Sonata. I missed that truck right up until the day I picked up my new truck. I haven't thought about that Dodge since.

The stowable bed extender is quite a handy thing to have. The only I don't like is that it blocks the rear tiedowns when in the stowed position. Makes it kinda hard to strap things down. Other than that, it's been great.
