    We almost have all of our rice harvested and thought I'd share some pics of our equipment, the harvest, and a couple of extra blazer shots. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    This is a pic ranch one out of four[​IMG]

    Both combines ready to go!![​IMG]

    Harvesting away!
    [​IMG]

    Here's our bankout, it hauls the grain from the combines in the field to the trucks. Forget 44" boggers!.....5' Firestone Rice & Canes with 4" of tread depth. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    [​IMG]


    Here's a pic I snapped from the 4wd bankout driver seat of the grain being augered into it from the one of the combines.

    Here's me after 1 month of harvesting everyday, not feeling my best. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Here's what the blazer has for duty these days around the ranches.

    Whoa, wierd harircut !

    Cool deal, I have to motor around a combine every day here, late harvesters chomping up what they can

    PROUD FARMERS OF AMERICA, BRINGING YOU HEALTHY FOOD THAT YOU CAN TURN INTO DISGUSTING UNHEALTHY CRAP, LIKE RICE CRISPIE BARS!

    Proud of you, for what it's worth, I harvested animals for much of my youth, and it's a tough job

    [/ QUOTE ]I run the bankout mostly and it goes through about 16" of mud no problem loaded at 30K lbs. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif It's strait piped (DT466)and loud as hell but still fun to drive, especially with 4 wheel steering. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I have a picture of some HUGE ruts but can't get the pic resized for some reason. /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    The blazer is still more fun though because it's so much faster and light. These days with it are fun because if I'm not pulling the trailer I've got my foot floorboarded trying to bounce through the 16" bankout ruts. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    You're one step closer to Supersize75'dom!!! /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif The next set of pictures you post up will probably have the Blazer rolled on it's side... then it's on to the truggy. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] Ah I hope not! I plan on just staying in the mud for now. I can haul it on my 20' gooseneck behind my dodge cummins and plan on doing a little mud racing here and there. A little nitrous maybe and posi front & back and see what I can do at the drags. My long range plans are to complete my restification when I get my dodge paid off, heck all that is left is a paint job and new interior and it would be a nice clean show worthy K5. I just hope I still have something in one piece and not a POS after playing with it when I want to pick up my resto job again. /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I have been wanting to start my resto since day one . I end up wheeling it , throwing upgrades at it , wheeling it , repairing it , wheeling it , something happens expensive to me , wheeling it , buy other hobbies some stuff , wheeling it , and collecting parts for the project instead of buying my resto stuff . I need an interior badly , and my respray is now pinstriped and each time I buff it , less pinstripes come out . I actually find myself thinking if I was just hit from behind or the side and wrecked my body enough , I could make my DD the project , give away my project to someone ambitious , and BUY an already nice Blazer with my settlement /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
