What kind of truck do you use to transport your bike?

I have a 99 F150 xlt extended cab (red) with trailoring package.
The reason I ask is because I saw a little shit (good guy actually) with a behemoth chevy must have been a crew cab with an eight foot bed towing the biggest freakin' enclosed trailer i've ever seen. I'm 30 and hope that was daddy's truck/trailer, because its sad that I can barely qualify for that now, let alone when I was 20

Ford Ranger

I used to throw the bike in the bed of truck, a 97 ford ranger XLT with a 4.0 liter v-6. I recently bought a 3 rail open trailer.

I have had my F2 and my buddies R6 on there and pulled it without much of a problem.

MY truck is a 93 Dodge Dakota, 3.9L V6 5spd. Its quick.. but its tiny.

I am currently interviewing for a nice job. My first scheduled purchase after I get a job is a late model (1999 up) Ford F-250 Superduty Crew Cab, 4X4, and I want the V8 Diesel. My dad has one with the V-10. Its an awesome truck. I have never been a ford guy, till my dad bought this truck.

I have a `90 Nissan kingcab 2X4 pickup that I have used for crash truck(bike recovery) at a few bike races.
The most weight I`ve had in there was a `86 VFR 750 and a Honda CBR600F3 both in street trim.

I got tired of towing with the convertable sebring, so I traded for a 02 Dodge 1500 V6 regular cab. Would be nice to have a larger motor, but I don't need it to tow one bike. Not like I use it for heavy duty pulling. She will tow a trailer with a bike and one in the bed. She is all I need.
But a F250 diesel would be sweet.
