    Who says ya can\'t tow stuff with a K5?

    Had to tow the tractor around today to plow the snow out of people driveways. $60/hr...Thats $1 a minute. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Gramps had the Power Stroke....So The K5 saw some tow duty. Worked out better than I thoght it would. Of course, it probly doesn't weigh much more than 3000lbs. Here's a coule pics..

    Yeah with that little 2cyl under the hood of the John Deere it don't weigh much. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Also the Big Block was probably a little help I imagine. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    As long as I keep it in 4wd I don't hardly notice it. It's pretty damn interesting if I forget to lock the hubs. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I towed a lifted 1 ton chevy while it was flat towing a built YJ down the side of the NYS Thruway with a strap, does that count? /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif The chevy ran out of gas so I towed it and the jeep to a rest stop. I wish I had a picture of the gas pump attendant's face when he saw us pull up!! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I was impressed, I barely even felt the load back there... even on the hills!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
