Wood Hauling Machine

Hey guys & gals,

Just wanted to pass on these photos of my 2002 Frontier out in the wilds of Northern BC with a load of wood. I fell that sucker then dragged it out of the bush, bucked her up, split it, then loaded some of it.

The initial plan was to take two loads, but as we were loading the first part up some guys drove by in an old crappy Ford just as I was pulling away. I noticed their tail lights and had a feeling they were casing out the remaining 8 pieces I had left.

Right then and there I decided no one but no one was going to get free wood after all the work I put in. I piled the rest on, strapped it up, then drove it home.

Who says you need a fullsize to keep your woodbox full anyway?

Definitely a nice stacking job to get it all to fit. I'm guessing 1000+ pounds of wood (?), but it doesn't really look like the rear is squatting too bad.

Nice looking load.

i noticed that as well. maybe his leafs are just in good condition.

here is my truck with just a cooler, extra water, tents, sleeping bags, and other basic camping supplies. (no passengers at that time, either) rear axle was almost riding on the bumps and i still wheeled the hell out of it. haha.

pain of discipline.
pain of regret.
take your pick.

Nice job securing it down. I want to scream every time I see someone with a load like that total untied down.

The pixs show an impressive load with very little sag. The wood is packed very tightly which leads me to believe that its weight is close to 3,000 lbs. Would you say that the load is approximately 4' X 4' X 4'?

Looks like way more than 1000 pounds.I'd guess twice that.

Hey folks,

Thanks for your kind words. I cut really dry Pine wood, so each block is probably 25 pounds and there are around 60 pieces, so its about 1500 pounds. I proudly bought my NIssan last summer, and it was a California vehicle before, so its adapting to the winter.

Whoever owned it before me, took very good care of itas evidenced by the leaf springs being able to handle that load.
