All set for the winter! Just picked up 3.75 tons last weekend.
In true fashion, I overloaded my new equipment to see if it would pass my stringent test: 2,500 # 's in bed of truck (1/2 ton) & 5,000 in trailer (GVWR 2,990 with empty weight of 1,350!
Trailer tires were looking scary. Inflated to 65psi (max) they were bouncing like basketballs over our lovely New England paved cowpaths. I would never take this setup on the highway, for obvious reasons! No swaybar, no trailer brakes & no equalizing hitch. I should do failure testing for trailer manufacturers!
The new Chevy 1/2 ton pickups are like a 1 ton from the early 90's. I was impressed! :headbang:
