Raw Material - Stone

The first step was to collect the stone required for the ramp. Mornings I would head out to nearby mountains and haul stone out of dry washes and old mining sites.

For this project, 8-tons of rock was used.

I beat the heck out of my 4-cylinder 2-wheel drive Toyota Tacoma; loading in a ton of stone day-after-day. The leaf springs are now pernamently deformed. I added 1-ton air shock lifters on the rear axle to handle the load.

Why don't I just get a bigger truck? 25 MPG - that's why!
