This guy already owns an FJ and bought a Land Rover. You're being very generous in your assessment of his intellect

You guys will tow anything with a midsized SUV!
Well I wouldn't call the HDJ80 a midsized suv. It weighs 4760 lbs and can tow up to 7716 lbs.
I did almost double that with the boat and handling trailer together.

I like the boat lurking in the rear view, like it's stalking them.

Maybe I read too many Far Sides as a kid.

Depending on how much you believe in manufacturers ratings, the highest rating you can get for a first gen dodge is the 1991 dually single cab at about 12 k, and both of those are 85 or older ones based on the crewcab, and only single rear wheel

Both of those would not be nearly as bad (esp the first one) had they loaded the trailer a bit back. I get the trucks are 'too' big for the trailers but still 1' back makes a huge diff on weight distribution.

The gooseneck looks like a 24k trailer, that ones less sketchy

Just one strap loosely around the ball. When it bounced over bumps it would almost come off.

Neither of those loads would be a big deal if those fags had the correct rear leaf springs so that the ass end wouldn't sag like. The 1st one is stupid because I know its over the tire weight limits.

I own one of those square dodges and even though its a dually, the frame is way more flexy thinner anweaker for the majority of it than my 03 half ton, I wouldn't be confident with probably 16 k behind it, especially on a bumper pull
