Ran,
Nice looking Fountain. When did you get that? The cover looks really cool. What's the specs on that bad boy!

I'm not sure how that's possible. I pulled my 30 Outlaw with a Yukon Denalli to the ramp 10 miles each way, when my diesel was in the shop. 35mph tops. That Yukon was all over the road...

You COULD do it with a good sized lawn mower. That don't make it a good idea.

I wish i had pictures, back in my dumb years i pulled a 28 ft cruiser ON A 45 FT steel Myco triple axle trailer with 4 wave runners on bunks i fabricated on the trailer in front of the boat, it was a sweet set up , localy towing great, long halls to the big pond and Illinois river, BAD, very bad, towed fine except for semis passing, changing lanes and down hill ventures, did i mention my pull vehicle was a 1998 S10 4 door blazer? 4.3 vortech with a paxton supercharger, i look back and just think how stupid and lucky i was i never killed myself or anyone else ,

For those of you that havent stood next to an H2, its about as wide as a dually and has much more stability in the front. It also weighs more than a 3/4 ton Suburban 4x4 at 6700lbs, shares the same transmission, and has a more intense frame structure. The transfer case is a Borg warner, with a crawl ratio of 33.1, running on a set of 35 12.50x18 Mudders!!!!!!!

So Common guys, I think I'll wait a couple of hours for you to CATCH UP! before I order you a Vodka Cranberry while im waiting for you at the London Bridge Hotel staring at my Tiger in the water!
Never mind old thread dammit Nort stop this lol.

Not the right truck to pull a boat that large.... Dually's, 1 tons etc.... diesels etc... Hummer gets 8mi/gal w/o towing ... so you do the math with towing a Cig.....

A good friend of mine has the same truck. Same color even! Hooked up the 36 cat and it wouldn't even move. Would not budge!
