    I have an antique, (mid seventies) 3/4 ton wood hauler with a 454. It also gets about 10MPG but I drive it less than a thousand miles a year. I can stack wood to the top of the cab & it doesn't even grunt. I can haul in one load what many others haul in two loads. "Ole Blue" has been here so long he is one of the family.

    100 bags of mulch.

    My normal load, 2 cars.

    I drain the gas from the scrapped cars so I get really good mileage on that gas.

    my truck and my wifes truck are a night and day difference.

    i drive a 2004 chevy 2500hd, with the 6.0, nv4500 manual, 2wd, no options except ac and a radio. rubber floormats, manual locks and windows, i love it. simple to work on. i put a detroit locker in the 14 bolt, and it chews thru the snow as good as most 4wd trucks...
