Prove my wife right! I think I need a pickup and she says I can haul whatever I need in my Jeep Wrangler unlimited. Show or tell what you have hauled in back of your Jeep !

Freedom. In the back of my Jeep I haul freedom.

With my wife's 4 door I've hauled 30 bags of mulch at a time on many occasions. I also use it when I need lumber but for small projects, 2x4s over the center console type deal, not like building a house or something.

I think my personal favorite is the big *** elk.

LOL.... you know you're not gonna convince the wife with this thread.... she's already made up her mind, and no matter what a bunch of jeepers say - she's not gonna change it... I think you lost this argument.

maybe you wait & should get the Wrangler truck that's coming in 2017.

Keep the Jeep and get a beater side-rig that has no frills but will get you to the lumberyard and back.

It all depends on what you want to haul and how much effort you want to put into hauling. I have a Yukon XL. I probably use it for hauling big items a few time a year. Could I use a Wrangler. Sure. However I'd have to use a trailer, which involves more time and effort.

If you want a pickup, go for it. If she has a problem with it, buy her some jewelry. That'll usually shut em up...for a minute.

My pick up is a regular cab, roll down windows, 19 yr old, 209k miles, f150, maybe worth $1000-1500.

In just the last few weeks, it's hauled fire wood, landscape timbers, 2 cubic yards of fresh horse manure, 50 gal water heater, 200 ft of PVC pipe, and that's just the big stuff.

Can't imagine not having a pickup in the drive With the exception of 4 months in 1996, I've had one since 1974. And I'm just a homeowner.

That is what I did. I bought my this beautiful 1979 4x4 1 ton for $800, but about another $700 in it (including paint job) and it is a great running truck and the dump bed works.

I had to go the other way. I already had a 4 door Silverado and had to beg for a side jeep. Ended up with a rough looking TJ and been fixing it up.

A good running dually with a dump for 8 yards?! You can't beat that with all those sticks you dumped. Good for you!

I had some logging done on property a few years back and it has pulled enough wood out of my place to heat a few homes for a few winters now.
