I TOW CUMMINS

This past week my friend that drives a 2500 Cummins had his truck break down on him and he can’t fix it. He has to get it towed to a shop in Spice land IN. Well my roommate that drives a 2500 Cummins with a three inch lift was going to pull him down there and when we hooked his truck up and loaded the trailer it was almost touching the ground because it was squatting so badly. Well needless to say we hooked a real truck up to it and are going to head down in the morning. Just thought you guys would enjoy some pics I know im loving this because this is the second time I have towed him in the past month.

the rear end on that Ford looks like it is squatting a little low. are you sure about it?? someone i work with who is pretty familar with Cummins, says that 5.9 engine weighs at least 2k LBS.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

I have seen really low cars straped like that but never a truck. No joke I saw a guy who had two chargers on a two car trailer. They were chained bumper to bumper and then tied to the trailer by the front car's front bumper and the rear car's rear bumper. I was like WTF?

No it's fine... we use wheel straps on porshes, and some bmw's... put her in park, pull the ebrake, and strap the wheels!

I've just never seen anyone do it with a truck!
