    No sway issues, tows like the sucker is not back there... love it!
    Jheez! jump to conclusions based of conjecture!
    Of course the truck is upgraded in the receiver department! the LLY towed this with the same setup with ~200,0000 miles cross country hundreds of times; whore truck is whore and I have had many many cross country miles with Nick Ricci towing all sorts of crap with blowouts, adventure, sleeping in truck stops... good times, miss those days! we even drove the sucker to the Pope and had him bless the hitch, pretty cool dude.

    I was going to post a video of you but decided against it. Instead I will agree with you that you may have been under the influence. Hah

    So I may have upgraded in the tow rig department, the poor duramax is being replaced.

    This time a 1964 C60 Chevy, it has late 1980's bus running gear in it, that is a Cummins 6BT, Allison automatic, it also has an exhaust brake and trailer controller in it already. I am going to fill it with tools and make it my mobile work platform too!



    A little bit of an electrical mess, gotta clean it up.

    After seeing this thing in person on Saturday, I gotta say, I'm impressed once again Nick! You can't get much more "tow rig" than an actual tow truck with semi tires on it LOL. Can't believe the deal you scored on this thing either.

    I've tidied up some of the wiring and threw some JW speaker knockoffs in the front of it.
