Everyone has real nice rigs. Here it is my bone stock '01 Ram pulling my '96 21' Ebbtide.

I keep trying to talk Jeffrey in to stripping the chrome off his MOMO wheels, and paint them in anthracite, along with getting the Red Brembo GT brake kit

Where does it stop

Looks Cholo eh

I hope you have electric brakes because that wheel base looks really small. Do you have a closer shot of wheels? I want to check out the size of the calibers. It's better to tow safe then sorry.

Jeffery is King of His Domain. I have no say in what he does or buys. I can only encourage. I did not encourage the 1/2 ton. However I did encourage it be a GMC.

That's funny Wasabe. I was gasping looking at that 36' Gladiator behind what appears to be a 1/2 ton SS extra cab. And I was questioning my thoughts about a Cafe or Gun behind my 2500HD...

I think the truck would brake down if we were towing a Gun or Cafe... aren't they heavier?

The Glad (according to the CRT website) weighs in @8000lbs. dry. Add in the weight of fuel, accesories, beer and the trailer and your towing 11,000+ lbs. with a truck rated to tow 7000 lbs!

A disaster waiting to happen Not an Insurance guys ideal customer!!

That's kind of the point I was getting at. I think that's still in the range, within a 1,000 or so of a Cafe, and possibly a light Gun. Be careful out there.
