    I was wondering how much mulch you've fit in your 1500 pick up 2wd. I'm trying to save a little on delivery i have a job 4 yards and i have a truck down now.

    I've put way too much, I think 4 yards is a little bit much, but it should work a couple times if you really need to. It also depends where you are getting your mulch. One place by me measures it exactly with a certain size bucket and one place doesn't really measure it and they always overload me.

    2 - 2 yard trips would be best. I would not try fitting more than that in there.
