I had a dead tree that fell across the logging road on my land I was hunting on Saturday. I didn't think to bring my chain saws with me just in case, so I put the 'ol F150 with Ecoboost to the test.

I looped my tow strap around the tree and hooked it up to the tow hooks on the front of the truck. I threw into reverse with 4 wheel drive engaged and started giving it gas. I was up to 2,000 rpms and not moving. Tried again and gave it a bit more gas and could hear the turbos kicking in and it started moving.

I got it turned 90 degrees, which allowed me access to get through. I'll cut it up at a later date.

I got this 14 gal one from Northern Tool. They had it on sale for 20 bux off, and I had a $20 coupon, so it cost me $100:

My car doesn't get very good mileage on the track:






A 30 minute track session at Daytona is probably 50 miles, so the 18 gal tank in my car is down below 1/2 a tank when I come in off the track.

I need a good supply of extra gas so I don't have to drive out to a filling station after every session.

Who needs mileage in a ZR1?! NICE!!!

Heck yeah. No better feeling than your truck getting you though a tough spot (literally).

Hauling some quikrete, a mixer, generator and trash cans to do some patching. About 800 pounds of quikrete and who knows how much the rest was.
