I own three diesels. An 2005 F250 that I use to tow the travel trailer and the family in and two Dodge Cummins.

The Cummins are my go to rigs, they haul the horse trailers, the tractors and a 20' flat bed that I put anywhere from 64 to 80 bales of hay on. The Dodge's and the Ford don't even know the weight is there, but the Dodge is a work truck. They will pull anything, maybe not very fast but they will pull it.

My Ford is just too pretty to use on the ranch.

I vote for the F250, minimum. A dually isn't required, but a desiel is.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The most important aspect of the cowboy truck is the dog. I suggest one of these...

Cowboys never had fancy sissy city slicker wannabe trucks like you boys.

We had trucks that were ment to work not look prety.

Benning your going to want a 1/2 ton short box basic pick up that has a few dents some scratches and a tool box 4x4 is prefers but not a much have.

All them super big ugly things are worthless when your trying to build a fence. Yoru to scared to scratch them.

The hauling truck was owned by the ranch owner to pull the trailers that was all it was used for.

Find an old Ford or Chevy 1/2 ton. Nothing fancy, just a truck. Never wash it, but keep it running like a top and you're good to go.

Benning,

I believe what you saw was a goose neck ball, most horse and stock trailers are goose necks that have a round cylinder that lowers over a large hitch ball that is mounted in the middle of the truck bed. This makes a very stable towing platform and is safer than a bumper hitch it also is easier to use than a standard 5th wheel hitch. Glasshartt and I have both goose neck and 5th wheel hitches in our truck but I prefer the goose neck.

PSSSSSSSTTTTTT.. Tango, ask Glasshartt about the big "ding" on the bed of her truck and how it happened.
