Someone posted a thread like this over on 24 hour Campfire, so lets try it here. Let's see your hunting/back-country rigs (vehicle that gets you hunting or shooting). Here is one of mine, a 1964 GMC Carryall (Suburban) 4x4, with the orignal Jimmy 60 degree, 305 cubic inch V-6 (yes, SIX), with grandma low 4 speed. The low end this thing has is amazing, can lug her down to 300 RPMs! This shot was taken up in the mountains behind Oatman, AZ, and the snow is once in a decade, as it is usually 110 degrees here in the summer!

Ken,

Very Cool Truck.... Had it been living in New England it would have been a rusted wreck by now.....

As for me, what I'm running it depends on what I'm Huntin' :lol:

That old chevy would fit right in back home in north Idaho. Good looking tires good in snow and rocks. I used to run radials in summer and had a extra set of wheels and tires with cooper bias ten ply mud grips I would put on in october during hunting season. Dam sharp rocks punch through radials real easy.Nice looking old chevy though no frills tough mountain buggy. If you find you some single rail big truck chains and cut them down.They work like grousers on a dozer and you can bust along through 4 foot of snow and scratch right down through the mud to dry stuff when its rainy and slick.But dont try to drive on a paved road with them on. Its like driving down railroad ties.

Better late than never to a thread, I guess.

Here is my beater rig, a 1978 Ford E-250 with a Quadravan conversion. The price of gas kept it parked for a while. That 460/C6/NP205 combo loves gas too much, especially pushing a lifted full size van around. But it sure will go places you have never seen a van.

I use my everyday transportation........a 2006 Ford Ranger Supercab XLT 2wd 3.0L Auto with larger fiberglas cap. I swapped out the original "weeny tires" and put on some serious rubber last fall. Got a "deal" on 4 Goodyear Wrangler AT's at WALMART. $55/tire....I just couldn't pass it up!!!! Love that place.

I really needed them this year!!!! :eek: At least, December and January. I "huroid it tru da grapevine" that it was going to be bad. It was!!! :roll: February has been pretty nice.....so far. ;) Bob
