Wow, I can visibly count 31 blocks, can't see how in the heck there are another 69 more that aren't visible.

good thing you didn't have to stop fast. A 22 lb brick could do some damage

Or even go through a hardtop window on a corner. I would cry. Its worth rent/borrowing a utility trailer or truck for those situations.

Ive carried 300 normal bricks inthe back in addition to 600 firebricks(from old mills) on a trailer. Suspension was almost bottomed out hehe. Went slow needless to say.

I'm kind of disappointed; I expected a bunch of "your momma's so fat" jokes
But even as cheap as I am I think I would have spent the $50 for delivery on that, or rented a Uhaul for $19

Glad the wife drives a Wagoneer so I don't have to put my TJ thru that!

Wow!, impressive would not be the word I would use in this scenario. That's just a catastrophe waiting to happen. One sudden stop or swerve and I could see the stack of bricks smashing through one of the HT windows onto the street traffic. Besides, I'm sure your back loves you for this.

The most I've had in the back of mine was a weight set that totaled about 800#. It rode like a dump truck. I can't imagine a ton in the back.

And my buddy said that I couldn't fit a ton of coal in the back of my jeep. Now I know I can prove him wrong!
