Me too, nice truck.  I was just thinking about ditching the yaris for a pickup of similar vintage.

Yup, that'll suck the reliability right out of the equation :P

'55 F-250 with a diamond plate flatbed.  302 Windsor/C4 auto, 3.73 Dana 60, 8x6.5 bolt pattern f/r, F-100 front fenders.  Have a 3" drop axle and disc brake kit for the front that I'll probably never get around to installing, probably use them to sweeten the pot for the next owner.  Oh and it's for sale too!  Factory heat for all you Northerners, works great  ;) ;D

Nothing nearly as interesting as many, but with airbags, crumple zones etc. it does the job as a family hauler and I can toss a bike in the back (or on the hitch as the case may be).
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

That looks like a  nice and sturdy hitch mount bike carrier. What brand is it? Max load?

Good old Princess Auto - Canadian equivalent to Harbor Freight.  Don't buy anything from those places if it has moving parts :)

The carrier is rated for 500 pounds, so it will haul anything I own.  The truck is rated to 7,000 pounds towing and a solid 900 pounds tongue weight.

My BMW R75/6 weighs about 460 pounds, while my KLR is 430 or so and it goes down from there thankfully :)  The TU250X in the photo is 326 pounds.

It's nice to be able to load and unload easily on my own, and not have a trailer to find a home for.

Not like you guys have in America, but this is my pick-up from Australia. Its a factory Ford with a 5 litre blown motor that has just under 420kW (560hp) at the rear wheels. It's pretty quick...
