Top 10 Reasons Why Ranch Trucks Are Never Stolen


10. They have a range of about 10 miles before they overheat, breakdown or run out of gas.
9. Only the owner knows how to operate the door to get in or out.
8. It is impossible to make a quick getaway with all the fence tools, grease rags, ropes, chains, syringes, buckets, boots, halters, coats, twine/wire, hats and loose papers in the cab.
7. It takes too long to start and the smoke coming up thru the floorboard clouds your vision.
6. The Border Collie on the toolbox looks mean.
5. They’re too easy to spot. The description might go something like this : driver’s door is silver, passenger door is green and the front fender is rust colored.
4. The large round bale in the back makes it hard to see if you’re being chased. You can’t use the mirrors because they are either cracked, hanging by a wire or covered with duct tape.
3. Top speed is only 35 mph.
2. Who wants a truck that needs a year’s worth of maintenance, plus, u-joints, body work, tail lights and a new windshield.
1. It is hard to commit a crime with everyone waving at you.
