    Still 1/2T for me. I am working on getting a van width 14b and I might have a line on some 12 bolt H1s. Then I'll switch over to the dark side.:D I didnt plan on going 1 ton. I just couldnt pass up on getting that DRW 60 since it was so close and cheap. :D

    What about John, Big Nick, 70jimmy, and oatsk5; they are 3/4ton. And isn't Jason 3/4ton? Big Papa Fred, Little Nick, and Mike are still 1/2ton.

    I don't think you could count Regular-size Nick as 1-ton, he doesn't even have a front shaft.

    I'm super-duper ton!

    Well I don't know if I am included in the poll but I have converted a 73 1/2 ton PU to what I would call a ridiculously heavy 3/4 ton, and a 1/2 ton Jimmy to serious 1 ton. I have enough parts trucks to convert everyone who has posted so far to 3/4 ton and I have that van axle too.:eek1:

    James has axle envy. If he'd get off his arse and work an honest day, he might have money to install all the cool swag he has in his garage. Then he'd be 3/4ton with chrome H2s.

    Yep - the burb is 3/4 ton. I do have a 14bff in the garage that needs to be installed (hmmm...maybe hoarding parts in the garage to be installed at a later date is a Longmont thing, eh James?). When that's done I guess I'll be 7/8 ton. :D

    1 ton axles make you go slow and they smell funny.

    My, how quickly you've abandoned your once proud 1/2 ton heritage. Shame!

    If you all would run 6 cylinders and little tires, 1/2 tons would not break. Don't need ground clearance, just bounce/grind over the rocks.:D :D :doah:

    The burro kicked OCG's ass while it was on the trail. I mean literally I think that trail was beaten into submission!
