    Good to see you and Brad both made it home safe. How many beadlock bolts did you break towing Brad home? Ya'll should have seen Brad's K5 on 44"s on a trailer behind Chaz's K5. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Yeah I already started sending it. It'll take a while for it to load up as it's 500 plus megs at 1600x1200 but it's a good pic of you, your trailer, and Brad's 1st gen. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Hell, you where getting some looks as you were driving out. Just think what those people would think if they knew about all the breakage you suffered.

    By the way, would you have attempted the same towing feat with an automatic tranny? /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
