New Ranger pics and some others

So my old man decided that we were going to level out the backyard. The Ranger has been used for just about everything except for hauling pallets of brick, 4x4's, and 2x4's. Those were put in the trailer behind the F-150. I even hauled 240 pickets in the bed of the Ranger and about 30 bags of mortar and cement mix, just not all at once. We built a retaining wall to level out the yard so we can rebuild a section of fence on it. I've hauled almost 20 loads of dirt in the bed of my Ranger so far. I figured some of you guys like to tear up your yards and build stuff like this so I thought i'd share.

Yes. The wall is about 160 cinder blocks. Lots of mortar and cement.

I don't think i've even washed this thing yet. My girlfriend and I cleaned out the interior about a month ago. I hosed off all the GD pollen today, but the **** came back. Right now the interior is covered in pollen and dirt.

My dad and I did a similar job about a year ago but we put peagravel and some 6" hoses at the base to drain away sitting water. Looks good! I hated having my Ranger squat that much...

i hope that wall stays up, if we were to build something like that up here..it would fall over the first winter from the freeze/thaw and frost movement. crazy to see different weather zones and how things get built..

anyways, the ranger is a bad boy for work! i work my truck all the time, and it can handle the loads great!! just throw a nice helper leaf in there and u wont have that squat.

I filled in each hole in each hole in each cinder block as we went along with either rock, dirt, both, and some cement in them. I don't think we'll have any issues. I'll take some pictures of the brick wall we built around the corner when I get back from getting a haircut.
