    Broken and scratched tailgate, cracked rear tail light lens, coffee stain in driver seat.
    You can also use tire inner tubes, cut in half, fill with sand or gravel and then use the adhesive of the patch repair kit to seal the ends. Place them on the wheel wells, to free up space of the bed.

    Been drinking that stuff since i was like 18-19.
    My brother got me hooked on it when we used to go to this little Cajun restaurant that carried it. Then it started showing up in all of the stores 2-3 years later.

    Really? Shiner's regularly available in NC? That's news to me. Good news. We're spreading a taste of Texas around. Bottles are good, but it's even better if you can get it on tap. Had some at supper last night as a matter of fact.

    Keep going the tractor-tire idea and mix calcium carbonate with the water rather than antifreeze. The salt will serve the same purpose and will cause less environmental harm than the antifreeze in the event of a puncture, or when it comes time to empty the thing at the end of the season.

    I had a Ford 2N and had the rear tire tubes filled with water & calcium for added traction. It's a pretty old trick and worked great here in NJ, even when the temperatures dropped below 0.

    Sorry it's not a beer post! :p

    Thanks Mj, I have never seen so many postings that strayed from the thread topic. I am going to go with sand bags or bags of pebble rock for the time being. For the record, in order to avoid being tooled, I am not angry that the thread topic changed gears. :p

    You bunch of drunks! I am so proud!:) 4 days til happy hour.

    Back on subject:

    Watch out for WHATEVER you load in the bed!!! In case of accident they become missiles coming at your head so tie it all down!!!!! I like the big innertube idea because you can easily tie it off to the tiedowns.

    You can't go wrong with a loose Hi-Lift missile either.

    (I can't stop laughing at your post. That's some quality funny right there!)

    How about we load up the bed with a bunch of passed out drunks.

    My suggestion both on topic and on tangent :D

    I was just gonna suggest filling the bed with the empties, but the drunks won't shift around as much, and they won't blow out either. They(drunks) do leak though, and no amount of duct tape will stop that.

    No, but I'd bet $20 that a hose clamp would. Now, which drunk wants to volunteer? :p

    I've noticed that also - in many threads. Some of the useful threads that get to be 5 or more pages (and sometimes 20+) long is very difficult to find the information you're looking for without going through pages of fluff and loosing interest. No wonder people post 'new threads' just so they don't have to sift through the fluff.

    Sorry...... OFF TOPIC again. :D
