    drug it over in the wifes 93 burb. 1/2 ton, 10 bolt, 460LE and all. kept her in drive the whole way and didn't have a single problem /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif we weren't the fasted rig up the hill but no trannie probs or overheating. the trailer weighed 2000 lbs and i think the bug was around 2k as well so around 4000 lbs total plus some junk in the back of the burb. could use some helwigs to help the rear out but it did pretty darn good. a few more ponys would have been nice up the hills though /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    was snowing on the way back but not sticking yet. we hit government camp around 4:30 or so. i have studs on the rear tires and brouht some chains too just in case. the weather channel kept saying it was going to dump up there but luckily it didn't yet. would have been a much longer trip.

    like the hood of my rig or the "Hood" like Compton! LOL!

    not much into bugs but it's pretty cool. he has rebuilt the motor and lowered it and it runs 14s at the track. not bad for a suped up lawn mower! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif at least he doesn't build Hondas any more.
