Well unfortunately I didn't have my phone on me at the time so I don't have any pics, but this afternoon I got called to be on a working party (yes officers get put on working parties) and got to haul a load of sandbags around.

Both trucks look awesome, and its a Cummins, it best win Hell our 3500 I loaded 900 pounds of salt bags on the second day we had it and you couldn't tell the bed even had moved.

This man wins the no squat challenge. Customers hired him to pick up their new 39 foot park model. Weighs in at around 10,000-11,000 pounds. I have hooked a twin version of it onto my truck before just to move it 5 mins, and it squated. Now this guy rolls in with his 04 1500. This is the trailer fully set up on just a 2 5/16" ball. No weight distribution or helpers.

Of course I forgot to snap a pic, but I finally finished the landscape timbers for my kids playground by picking up (12) 4"x4"x10' pressure treated lumber at Lowe's. I was happy with my 6'4" bed length that's for sure! The guy who helped me load the truck was impressed with the RAM.

26' travel trailer, 31 feet overall. Approximately 7800 pounds.



Who says lifted trucks can't tow? You just need the right setup to do it



The real test will be tomorrow night once I load up 1000 pounds or so of tools/gear in the box of the truck and fill the trailer up with water. Should be some decent weight to pull up through the mountain passes of BC.

about 500lbs of wood. truck didn't even know it was there

about 1500lbs of wood and cement. still barely noticeable to my truck. takes about 3000lbs of weight to make my truck sit level at which point it looks like a normal old worn out 1/2 ton truck.
