Here's when we all go....40 custom 24K gvw with removable fenders and low deck being yanked by a 2006 cummins dually 6 speed. It will be replaced next year with my super dually project provided I get it done.

This was my tow rig until I sold the truck to pay for Jeep upgrades. It was underpowered for the job. (Obviously)

I tow with a 2011 Ram. 6.7 blah blah blah. Trailer is a 24ft. lowboy goose with brakes on both axles. Perfect setup for one rig. However, I tossed more at it.

Truck now.


Loaded on the way to EJS 2011.



Coming home from the Big Meats Run. Fork lift weighs 9200 pounds by itself.

Andy, why did you take a forklift to the big meats run? Flexing Jeeps maybe?

Bought the fork lift for the shop and picked it up on our way down. The place we bought it from was going to be closed on our return trip on Sunday so we were stuck with picking it up on Thursday. It never made it off the trailer until we made it home.

Mine. 01 GMC 2500 sle. 6.0l I really don't have great pics of it but. I have had it for two years now. Hauled countless loads of gravel in the bed and have towed the jeep a few times.

I have 7500 in this truck and damn glad I have it.

Getting ready to go wheeling!


After a good deay at the badlands.


Trailer is a 20 year old rig that we used for a bobcat. Still works pretty good. I wish it had electric brakes but the inertia brake works well, you just have to get used to it.

The main tow pig for the Jeep is usually a '06 class C 26' motorhome. E450 V10. Usually I am camping when hauling the Jeep. Otherwise, it's a 1994 Ford F250 4x4 extended cab. It has the gas saving 460 big block and a 5 speed manual. It's been a great truck and matches the 1993 20' boat. Car trailer is a '06 PJ518D dovetail.

2010 Ford F-150 Lariat with the Tow Package - Good truck & as you can tell, we like the black & chrome look. I don't have a pic of the trailer as of yet, but it's just a average 20' flatbed tongue-pull. Black as well

This is just a phone pic, I'll get one of the truck & trailer together soon.
