Toyota RAV 4 Peekup


Sometimes I wonder if I should have sold my Nissan PU but after this morning I realized.

"I DON'T NEED NO STINKIN' PEEKUP" biggrin

SUVs/SUTs are actually a good compromise in most cases; consider that many times we will put a shell/topper/cap on a pickup, so the only difference between the two is that you can take the "shell" off the one - I seldom found that to be necessary in most cases. We always had a station wagon of some sort, and our '70 Chevy Kingswood Estate could hold four sheets of 3/4" plywood before the next sheet interfered with closing the tailgate; my Suburban could hold a lot more. Not so for the Jeep Cherokee, but that had a roof rack from Con-Fer that I added that would carry enough stuff to make the car top heavy. Of course, I always had a pickup, too, so -----------------.

I have usually had a pickup.....Where I live now, everyone and their brother (or sister) drives one, so I fit in. The wifes minivan is pretty handy too....I carried a bunch of 10ft fence posts a couple of years ago

OK, the f?ence/barrier/restriction/grass saver??? is done. Yes it is "simple" and "cheap" to do but I think it serves the purpose and I'm happy with it.

Clever! I can't recall ever seeing that configuration of materials, but it sure looks like it will do a job. Were you haveing problems with neighborhood thugs driving on your yard, or????

not really problems but, even some of our families would park at the steps and that grass has to struggle to survive just from my "Lack of Care" - - next season I'm gonna fertilize and water regularly if the monthly bill doesn't get too unforgiving - - - any time a landscaper wants to park in front or a construction worker from across the street, I have been more than agreeable so my main problem was "our bunch" - - - especially the Asian Persuasions from my youngest stepson's fiance's bunch - - I guess they don't have grass in China - - - well at least not the king you grown and mow

Grass? About this time of year I don't got much with as many bare spots as lawn. Regardless of what I do, there have been too many trees removed in front, then the gas line replaced after that tree lightning strike pulling up the underlying sand to have much top soil left. Water is too dang expensive since the town was forced to buy into the County supply from the murky and PCB infused Hudson River.

Pick up trucks - I'll never be without one of some size or another since I've owned one since 1977

I've had a truck since 1977 except for 2006 to 2014. During those years I used my Neon as a truck. I can get 8 foot lumber in by folding down the front passenger seat, folding down the rear seat and still close the trunk. I've hauled bricks and paving stones too, just have to spread them out so all the weight isn't in one spot. In 2014, I got a pretty sweet deal on a 2013 Chevy 1500 4x4. I get a tingle every time I sit in it after 5 years with the Neon.
