Finally gotta pull something

Well my buddy was trading his jeep for a chevy pickup and i told him I'd help him and pull everything for him if he helped out on fuel because I've never pulled nothin since i got the truck yet and i really wanted to. so this is what i pulled today, the pic with the jeep on the trailer is in Ritzvile, Wa, where we were supposed to meet the guys to trade rigs well they ended up having all sorts of problems with their tow rig then had a blow out on their trailer on the way to meet us so i said screw it we'll meet them in Spokane (they were coming from Coeur D'Alene) and then the last pic is the truck he traded the jeep for, the truck was pretty badass, its got a 383 bored 0.60 over and a bunch of other stuff and blueprinted and balanced and the papers say about 450-475hp and its sittin on 3/4 running gear with 37s. My truck pulled it just how i thought it would, amazing, but once i get my chip i think it'll pull a lot better, and it was fun stoppin that with no brake controller lol

Good argument for a ZF 5 spd. I hardly use my brakes at all (and yes I have a brake controller) pulling my 30' travel trailer. Ya really don't wanna be hauling anything without the controller. I tried that once and slid through an intersection in the rain with a trailer full of heavy stuff. Went out next day and got the controller installed.
