It is really amazing what Tank can to with a boat......I mean, even though he couldn't back down the ramp straight, it just didn't matter. He just got out, tied some lines on it and pulled it straight. Here is a pic before he pulled it. Really amazing.

Now, I've only heard about it and haven't seen it myself, but I understand he can do this same thing with the TopGun he has now. Obviously since the TopGun is longer it might be even more crooked on the ramp so it must be even more impressive.

Sorry Tank......had to throw ya under the bus a little!

I actually don't have many pics of it for some reason. It was a 97 3/4 ton. 14" custom lift on 42's. Towed the Baja good but when we bought the Cig I needed something with a little more umph and bought the duramax crew cab.

Here's a couple sh!tty pics of the Suburban. It's actually still around my neighborhood. Guy took it and straight axled it and put it on 44's. Things crazy huge!
