Default Here's the new tow rig.

As you all know from my questions on SuperDuty's I've been looking at one. Well here she is. Around 400 miles so far. I think I'm gonna be happy from the looks of it.

I still can't believe you bought a FORD. Chevy motor in your boat isn't proof enough that you should have stayed away from that pos Ford? LOL!!

Looks like a nice truck Brian. Can't wait to drive it at LOTO.

I'm VERY happy with performance. That's what I meant by "from the looks of it".

The trailer hooked up to it is a flat bed dove tail. Used it to tow our shop toy about 300 miles round trip last night. I'll see if I can post a pic of it loaded. Quite the deal.

The boat is in the background. I think I have a pic my bud took when he came over with his digital camera. I don't have one. Too busy spending $$$ on other toys.

Quit it!!! I'm still a little shocked myself. Don't make it any worse.

Here she is loaded down with our shop truck last night. You like? This thing was 11' feet tall on the trailer. You can get an idea of how big it is by how small my new truck looks.

If someone is better at posting these pics than I am, feel free to resize this.

Troutly,

$$$ well spent IMO. Air Bags are the right way to go if you have a little too much tongue weight. Firestone I assume.

Thanks for the compliments all.
