    A friend of mine called me and said her dad was selling their cabin and farm on the Buffalo River and that i could have the canoes if i wanted them but i had to get them that day. I called around for a trailer or some help but everyone was busy so i said WTF surely i can get two free canoes on my truck and drive 30 miles with them. Luckily they gave me some old car batteries and a few log chains too so that helped in the counter balancing of the one canoe. I'm glad that there were plenty of tie down points in this truck because i used them all. Now if i had a roof rack and the D-ring mod i would be dangerous:D

    :rofl:I would not have gone 2 miles without being pulled over around here. I am sure there are people telling the story about how some jackass had 10ft of canoe sticking out of his bed. :rofl:

    since they were giving all this stuff away it was like a DEEBS fight between me and my buddy. i got both the canoes but he ended up with a set of golf clubs,a set of chairs and free beer.
    i figured it wouldn't ride too well but the cabin is about 1.5 miles off the road through a feild and a rough driveway so that was my test run. If they didn't fall off going through the woods and feild then i was ready for the pavement. Once we got on the road everything rode well at about 50mph.
