Under the hood
No, he decided he didn't need the spare and for some reason he didn't think he could fit it on the car with the other 4

why not put two on the roof in the middle? That would work a lot better then those three stacked on the back...take some weight and more it forward as much as possible....what's inside that he can't one inside too?

Hahaha! Thousand miles down, thousand to go. It is ass heavy but it the only way to get them out there. The bag on the roof is almost as heavy as the tire. 25mpg at pretty much 80 the whole way. The passat is tough we be fine!

If they pull double duty (twin line for recovery) and self loader then yes we run 4dr or lwb.
But the repo only rig usually all run regular cab shortys around here.
But with that said there all 450 ferds or 4500 Dodge, lot heavier than that little 350 in the video. Lol.

hell, we have laws that specify age limits for riding in the back of trucks around here.

Couldn't outlaw it, just made it so people didn't make their kids ride in back. Too many farmers and hillbillies.

I'm sure there are laws, just no one cared.

I was 13 or 14 when I started driving on the roads with a "farm license"

Im guessing fifth wheel. We use single axle low boys like that all the time to move skidders and cutters. Usually rated for 15 tons
