trucks all set for the big tow
had the 95 2500 checked out.
come to find out dad had the big deal model. new trucks are called HD, but this one wasnt yet.
it already has a factory tranny cooler in it, so im set to haul.
had a new tire put on, ac is fixed, had all new rear axle u bolts put on, new brake lines, new tranny fluid lines, new rear brakes, chain anchor points were welded on, new trailer loaded for bear.
all i gotta figure out is if uhaul provides the drop bar for the hitch. i gotta get that load down level. anyone know if they do?

No they do not. Also don't be surprised if you need to buy an adaptor for the trailer wiring when you get the trailer. Uhaul uses several different types of plugs depending on the age of the trailer.

Can you set them up on water skis and tug a little on Kalifornicate?

where do you get one of those offsets?

bobski 09-15-2013 10:16 PM

cant use a offset on a ball.

ok, next question...can a 3/4 ton carrying its max bed load still tow its max tow load?

I'm all ready to rock and my car's all ready to roll. And it didn't cost me nearly as much to get my car in tip top shape as it did for you to get your truck all fixed up.
