  • If Wagner's doesn't give you a DEAL on a pickup after that endorsement, they are loco.

    By the way, Brian, you keep referring to "the farm."

    In S.W. Nebraska, farms start at 1,000 acres or so.

    What you have is a vintage FARMSTEAD.

    Or rather, it appears that vintage farmstead got lucky and has a real good owner/steward and keeper of the faith.

    Still suspect if the Jeep has any pulling power, you would be happier with a good 4X8 or 5X10 utility trailer.

    Check the manufacturer for their maximum towing capacity with the jeep in poundage. Even with a good pickup, a big utility trailer lets you move up a long way in hauling capacity for a heap less than buying a three-ton stake bed.

    There has to be a an OF Club to be found by hitting every serious coffee shop in the aea, drop around to some of them and drop a hint. Here OF is abbreviation for "Old F---s" -- there it could be Old Farmers.

    Or post the bulletin boards at a few dozen stores or keep spreading your needs in the blog.

    I agree a small utility trailer is the solution for our light hauling needs. I appreciate your ideas and comments...see Thursday's blog
