    I just moved to the Boulder, CO area, and need to start my job immediately. I need to ship my K5 out here pronto, in the most cost efficient way possible. So give me any suggestions or references you have.

    Another option, if someone lives in the Boulder, CO area and has a real beater truck they are willing to sell for like $500 that will get me around until I can get my truck moved with my other stuff, just let me know.

    I think United Van Lines has a deal, $800 for a 20' van/connex box. Same with SeaLand, or try U-Haul, They still have the car hauler.

    I'm not sure I understand what this means. It's that much to rent, or that much to ship whatever I can fit in that?

    Let me claryify, I am in Boulder already, my K5 is in Cleveland. It has 4" lift, 3" body lift, 40" Boggers (and I don't have smaller tires I can put on or money to get them). So I'm thinking rail may be the only way. Any ideas?

    Chills: Thanks for the offer, but if I buy another K5 I won't have money for a down payment on a house (plus the misses would probably kill me). :D

    Take a couple days off work and drive it. A plane ticket and fuel for the drive will probably cost less than shipping.

    It has a 454 and 40" Boggers. It gets 4MPG, so it will cost about $700 to drive it, let alone it will wear my Boggers half way down. Not to mention that if snow hits, those Boggers will spell certain death on the freeway! :rolleyes:

    :haha: Sounds like fun.

    I drove mine from Boston when I moved out here, even drove it back the next summer, then back here again. Bias ply tires and the highway are indeed a horrible combination.

    BTW Welcome to the neighborhood :thumb:
