I usually use my beater 1986 1/2 ton chevy plow truck to haul wood. Its a real gem complete with invisible floors, busted back window, and lots of dents.
Ah the firewood through the back window..... lots of us have done that many many times........

we have mutual friends, so he is asking 13.5, but would take 12, and as time goes on I am told he will go as low as 10k.  My wife is out of town and is worried that I bought it.  I told her she will find out when she gets home!   :D

I hope so!  she is at a 1/2 marathon in hot springs Arkansas.  she has texted both of the kids to ask them.  my daughter said "I do not think so"  in reply to "did dad by a big army truck?".  I had her text back, "you mean the big black one?"  she may be mad now, but she will be relieved when she gets back!  she now is asking, "yes the one in the picture, do not let you dad twist your arm into lying!".  my girl Monique is texting back that "dad did not twist my arm".  I feel a little like   @Southside  making my wife a little crazy.  ;) :)

New guy on the forum. Some impressive firewood haulers here, thought I'd show off my rig.

1968 Kaiser/Jeep M715 5/4 ton. She's a little slow but I've never managed to overload her or get stuck.

It hasn't done much wood hauling yet, since I've only owned it for a few months, but this guy is going to be spending some time in the woods. My tractor is more practical in a lot of instances, but this one is more fun:

1951 M37 "Brutus"

 

This was a former military truck from the Korean War era. It still has the fold-up troop transport seats n the back. Rated for 3/4 Ton off-road, and 1 ton on-road. This model was the predecessor of the Kaiser M715 that @Larry in OK posted.

Fans of the M.A.S.H. TV series may recognize the model, as it appeared in a number of episodes. The M43 Ambulance was essentially the same truck, with a stretched bed.

Mine runs well. It does need a transmission and transfer case rebuild, as they are both weeping oil. Other than that, my main problem is that it has a pintle hitch, and all of my trailers are ball hitches. Pintles are certainly better for off-road use, but I'm not about to switch over all of my trailers, and want to keep compatibility with other tow vehicles. I'll probably mount a receiver under the rear cross-member, which shold get me close to the correct height as well.

I  remember those well, would pull a boxcar up a tree if the bark would stay on. Just took all day to get to the tree! Oh, and keep your thumbs on the outside of the wheel off road.

This one has had power steering added and the steering column from an old S10 pickup installed. The local guy who is a restorer of old Dodge Power Wagons and military trucks has a an original steering column which we will be installing at the same time we're doing the transmission and transfer case rebuild. I will keep the power steering, however.

That's why my dad never would let me put the cool spinner knobs on any tractors we had. Once we bought an old case that had one on it and I remember thinking sweet finally got one but dad insisted he wouldn't buy it until the spinner was removed.   I'm in my mid 30's now and dang ole 76 dodge power wagon broke my thumb pulling through a gate not long ago.  Old man might of known something.

Those spinner knobs would have taken my hand off. I had a Dodge Ramcharger (no power steering) and was creeping down a skid road when I front tire caught a large rock and decided to adjust course. That steering wheel spun like a propeller. It was about 3 days before i had almost got full range of motion back in my thumb. :D ;D

If you've got a suicide knob on a steering wheel use it.  Not using it is what's dangerous ;) ;D :)
