We all have a little "redneck" in us

What in the world is it about rednecks that we find so interesting? Is it the cut off jean shorts and the flannel shirts? Or is it mudbogging and the redneck girls that could beat any average man in a wrestling match? Maybe people just love laughing at ‘you might be a redneck’ jokes and Larry the Cable Guy. I think it’s more than that though and I’ve come up with a theory. My theory is that we’re interested in rednecks because deep down all of us want to know what it’s like to be one. We want to have that carefree attitude and do whatever we want, when we want. But how do we let the redneck within us run free? I believe it starts with a truck. So to help satisfy our burning desire I’ve scavenged ksl.com and found 3 of the best redneck trucks I could for under $3000. Check em out below.  

This is a 1976 Ford F250 Highboy. For those of you who don’t know what a Highboy is, it’s a nickname given to the F-250’s that Ford made from 67-77 because they sat so high out of the factory. You know what that means, great for muddin’. This bad boy also has a 360 V8 motor, dual exhaust, and 35 inch tires. Heck it’s even got a roll bar which could come in handy on those nights when you’ve had one too many. This beauty could be yours for just $1000. Not a bad price to experience redneck freedom.

This next one is my personal favorite. It’s a 1978 Chevy K1500. And yep, that’s a huge camper attached to it. That means while you’re cruising the backroads your wife and two kids, Walker and Texas Ranger, could be making dinner on the 3 inch stovetop in the back. Or if you happen to bury the truck up to its axels in mud you could just hop in the camper and sleep till the mud dries up. This is the most expensive truck at $2500 but you gotta remember it’s a two-for-one so it just might be worth it.

This last one may need a little tlc but it still has some good potential. It’s a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500. It’s already been fitted with a lift kit and big wheels and all it needs to help you fulfill your redneck fantasies is a transmission. I bet with some gold old fashioned duct tape though you could have it running in a jiffy. I’m pretty sure this picture was taken right after the owner blew the transmission trying to get it out of the hole it’s in. So if you are interested in this one make sure you bring along some buddies to help you haul it out of the field it’s been stuck in for who knows how long.  Oh and $1500 to pay for it.

There ya have it, three perfect trucks to help you experience and enjoy all the madness and fun that the rednecks do. So head to Wal-Mart and buy all the flannel you can cuz it’s time to get your redneck on.

  1. I'm pretty sure all three of those are in my hometown. I'm not exactly a redneck, but I still have that place in my heart for my 1973 Ford F-250 ranger with a 390... Rusted out tire wells and holes in the floor of the cab, it was also only rear wheel drive, so I'm not exaggerating when I say I got stuck in my high school parking lot when we got an inch of snow.
