    my buddy Joe Bunker over on SNORT got me some tube for my K5. Only problem is he's up in Kirkland and I'm down here in Vancouver.... and 20' sticks of tube won't fit in my ford ranger extra cab and my K5-hauling trailer hasn't been built yet.

    Anyway, bottom line... I'll pay a good amount of coin for someone to transport the stuff down here for me. Anyone?

    You need to buy a ladder rack for your truck . I see them all the time on craigslist for cheap . With the money you would pay someone for gas to get your tube , you could get a rack . When you are done with using the rack you could unbolt it and lose it somewhere on your property :haha: . You have lots of room , I've been there :D .

    I thought about the ladder rack thing... what kind of weight capacity do those things have? 300' of tube is prolly pretty heavy.

    what kinda rig is the rack you have for fumes? Might be able to make somethin work here... hmmmm...

    I was out measuring my truck today... turns out that even if one end of the tube (when up in the rack) was even with the front bumper, the other end of the tube would still be like 7-8' past the rear bumper. Don't think thats gonna work. lol! Maybe a quad cab with a ladder rack... but neither of my rigs. The tube is actually 22' per stick. A normal car hauler trailer would prolly work best, it could hang over each end a little and be fine. Sigh. Thankfully the guy is cool about holding the stuff for a while. Just gonna have to be patient and wait until someone is heading this way I reckon.

    I'm open to any option that will get the tube down here. :thumb: Doesn't have to be super soon either... if anyone is planning on going in a month or two or whatever, lemme know. Pimp mobiles, borrowed rigs... whatever works! :thumb:

    I've got a ladder rack for the crewcab but the fuel bill for that gas guzzling 454 at $3+ a gallon would be down right scary :eek1: .

    yeah... prolly cost ya over 100 bones in gas. I was kinda hoping that at some point a fellow ck5'er would be headed that way anyway to take care of something for themselves and I could pay for most of their gas. Be a win-win for everyone that way.

    with a ladder rack... yes. My '75 C20 is a bit on the short side, but its just a regular cab long bed. With a full on ladder/lumber rack (the kind that has the part that goes over the cab etc) the ex-cab/longbed would prolly work. Have to have a rack though. I can't think of any other safe way to hold something that looong and (combined!) that heavy.
