    My Sub is broken down right now and I had to pick my Chevelle up from the body shop. So I took my wifes S10 Extreme and got things done.

    I would've done it if it wasn't a short flat route home.

    Here's the rest of the Chevelle pics.

    Did you mean to say "I wouldn't have done it....."? /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    How did the little truck handle with that load behind it? I imagine your trailer brakes were working over time....

    Yes

    It did better than I expected it to do. I just made sure I gave plenty of following distance and didn't put too much tongue weight. As usual it's everyone one else on the road you have to make up for.

    Well I have done worse, not proud of it but I made it and I was extremely carefull.
    I towed a longbed 3/4ton truck with my Jeep wagoneer.
    The 360 V8 helped in the power department but I had soft springs and 35" tires on the Wag and it was during a storm at night.
    I just stayed on the right going 45MPH and looking 1mile ahead and 1 mile behind me.

    Its funny when the thing you are towing is heaver then the thing you are towing it with !!! Levearge comes to mid ....and so does jackknife ...W have a 3/4 burd and a 98 dodage 1 ton dually w/ a 6000 lbs trailer .....The trailer takes the burb for RIDES !!!!! Espically when we hit a pot hole ..scarry !!!!! I also have a 26' sailboat that I use to have a a bronco 2 to put it in the dock boat ramp.....I would Never drive that combo on the street !!! I think electric brakes are the anwser !!!!
    On another note...your towing setup is not worth killing someone over or going to jail for.... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
