    It's a 1 ton truck with a TH 400. It never even skips a beat, it will pull my truck 75-80 MPH if I want.

    Doesn't get much better than that in light duty vehicles. More power would be nice, but a 1 ton truck is pretty much as good as it gets.

    Re: HOW COOL AND BIG IS \"YOUR TRUCK\"

    oh, sorry, I thought it was just a half ton and all. Does it get wavy at all with winds, and the trailer being longer than the tow rig?

    Re: HOW COOL AND BIG IS \"YOUR TRUCK\"

    I am noticing that most of these pics are not even close to what the original poster asked for...which was a 6" lift with 36" tires. Not trying to piss anyone off but I know if I asked for pics of 6+36's and I was getting 4 &33's, 12& 44's, 5&40's, etc. I would be a little annoyed. /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif Keep in mind that is my opinion.

    1. The trailer is about the same length as the tow rig, about 20 feet. (which would be a little over 6 meters for you Canadians).

    2. No, it does not sway. With the proper tires aired up, a weight distributing hitch, and a properly loaded trailer I have never had issues with sway. That same tow rig is what pulls my mom's 33' fifth wheel without issues.

    Now back on topic.......

    My rig has 6" of lift and 38.5s (the one on the trailer above).
