My cottage-neighbor brought his awesome beater pickup truck to our little enclave of cottages as a work truck for the summer. Hauled up his log splitter, averaging almost 30mpg on the interstate.
Funny story for His Stigness, the truck failed its safety inspection in Delaware due to rotten rear fenders. So they ran across the street to Walmart, bought a couple rolls of Gorilla tape, “fixed” the fenders as you can see in the pic, and it passed inspection. Probably increased structural stiffness by about 60%.
