Just kidding!!! I've been sitting here for days looking at the ice and snow. Wishing for hot weather and boat riding.

Try going down a hill...


Those coconuts... are they carried by African or European swallows???? cause you know... It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.

My rig is right around 5K. I have a full size truck and I don't even feel it back there. I used to have a Jeep Cherokee that was rated at 5K. That was a "WHITE KNUCKLE" experience to say the least. I think the short wheel base is the killer for any of these mid/small size vehicles.

When it comes to any kind of hauling I feel it needs to be American made.(ie. Ford,Chevy,GMC,Dodge)
