Andre and Kent took a trip to the National Western Stock Show & Rodeo earlier this month in Denver, Colorado. While they were there, they took a look around to see what trucks cowboys actually drive. As you can imagine, the show was full of flat-beds, duallies, trailers, cattle, horses, and much more.
While they were at the show, Andre and Kent walked around and talked to a few of the folks attending the show to see what they drive and haul.
First up was Larry who drives a 2008 Ram 3500 HD with a Cummins diesel. He installed a flatbed so he could carry more hay. He also installed a 55 gallon diesel tank to give the truck more range.
Jeff had a 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD Duramax. Andre took notice of the massive bull bar that Jeff installed. The 33 foot Alum-Line trailer is what Jeff uses to haul his show cattle.
The next trucker had a 1996 Ford F-250 XLT with a Power Stroke diesel. This truck is his dedicated towing rig and he has had it since it was new in 1996. So far there are only 250,000 miles on it, and he plans to keep it for some time. He says “why buy a new truck when the old one keeps on truckin’?”
Be sure to watch the whole interview to hear all about these ranchers and cowboys to see how they really use their trucks!
