thats far past the weight capacity of a ranger isn't it?


as for your story all i have to say is you're a MORON for not strapping it down, ESPECIALLY getting on the highway. I moved one from one of my friends house to another, about 8 miles of suburb stop and go, 30mph speed limits and i had a strap around the back of it and over the top.

Ive had 2k worth of stone in my 2000 when I had the RCD on. The AAL helped with that one.

I had a second job a few years ago driving a flatbed tow truck. One day I was taking two cars to the scrapyard and I noticed everyone driving by giving me strange looks so I stopped to check the car on the wheel lift and noticed one of the legs came off and I had been dragging this car SIDEWAYS the whole time! You should have seen the skid marks!

LOL.. I was laughing pretty hard thinking about him when he finally notices it's gone. LOL.. I bet he thinks someone "stole it".

I caw a guy towing a boat one day. The lower unit was down and just dragging the pi$$ out of it. By the time i got him stopped (took about 20 minutes) it was 2/3's of the wat through the prop. Stainless too boot. I am sure the lower unit was smoked because I had a mess of oil on the front of my truck when i got home.

He too was just looking at me like i was trying to rob him or something. When i get him stopped he seamed like i was bothering him or wasting his time.
