Oh Boy....And the winner is?

Ran across this little tidbit....

Class l V Hitch Install... (patent pending..)


Wouldn't you love to see how the trip went...? Good chance this ended up doin' some unintended off roadin'somewhere.

Check the 'hills' in the background.

How would you like to meet this rig on a two-lane road....coming down the mountain in your direction....power steering works real good now.




She's hitched up and ready to roll!!

Amazin' how the extra weight smoothes out the ride.

Needed to air up the rear tires a bit ('bout 160 psi).




Added some super heavy-duty chain for extra support on the tailgate, (note the 'Heavy-Duty 'S' hooks to attach the chain)

Also paid-up for some BIG Number 5/16 sheet metal screws to attach the Reese hitch frame to the tailgate (see 'em there? one on each side...)

Likely two more through the carpet into the floor pan inside....

Yep, probably overkill, but didn't want the possibility of having an axerdent.




Most of the time was spent on the front porch whittling down that MASSIVE solid pine 4x4 to fit precisely down into the hole in the ball mount receiver.


Note also - The 14" x 14" piece of 3/8" plywood on the underside of the tailgate to distribute the load more evenly and beef up that tailgate support.

'A MAN CAN'T BE TOO SAFE'...!!
It's holdin' up the tailgate.
Otherwise, reckon the tail gate would fall off!

They are out there, folks....... and they 'REPRODUCE'!

That's beyond dumb. Don't know what I'd call that.

It is a repeat, I think this is well beyond the third time it has been posted on the MOC over the last few years. Still amazing though.

I think that I've read posts from this guy. He said, "when I pull it, I hardly know it's back there".

I hope it's the way the camera was held and I hope it's not really on an incline. It's hard to tell but if that house in the background is level, then I hope there's some chocks at the rear axle.

Flymutt, all he needs are some airbags and all would be good.

It's a repeat, but certainly worth the reminder every other year or so. I'll be scared when we start seeing nothing wrong with it.
