Who needs a truck anyway???

Mind you, it would have made this job a little quicker and easier no doubt, but my Jeep just became even MORE functional than it already was. Ive seen a lot of things in a jeep but never seen anyone do this before... Im proud i fit one scoop in successfully. Not much mulch lost.

Pretty sure that would be a half-yard. Did you shovel it all in there from the bucket?
Because when I had my truck the guys in the Bobcat would just come over and dump them in. Not sure if the Bobcat driver would be happy to just drop a bucket into your Jeep or hate you for making him try that...

He was rather grumpy that i brought my jeep since he normally just drops it in truck bed or trailor but i had the net and sound bar so i told him id just load it myself and he was like "how do you know when you get a full scoop???" i said you can either tell me or just take your full scoop amd dump it and ill load it up... So he dumped it and said "you did bring a shovel right???" i was like yes im not retarded.. he was a grump. But i just took my door off and slid the seat forward and loaded from there. Took a little while but it got the job done and i finished my side job on time

If you Jeepers don't have a trailer your missing out. I have a harbor freight type assemble your self for $260. I can carry pretty much anything I want. 900 lbs weight limit. 4x8 size. Low to the ground. (Easy to load and unload compared to a pick up) trailers are not just sweet homes they can make life so much easier.

Thats my next purchase after this weekends job. And many of the type before it... Once my brother got rid of his truck it really is needed more than some may think. Especially with how many projects we got going on. Good to know about the DIY harbor freight for 260. Will definately look into that.

You do have to add a sheet of plywood depending on the thickness you choose add +-$30. So nearly 300 total now that I remember that.

Haha. I saw your tarp and thought, that would have been a good idea. My thought was no carpet to get dirty, so no big deal.
