ranger towing a ranger

last weekend my rear end blew in my truck, so i drove it to my friends shop to put it on the lift to get a better look at it. needs a new differential and all new bearings, so i figured it would be a good project to work on at school. i towed it to school with my dads f250, but before we hooked it up to my dads truck, me and kyledm18 wanted to see how well his truck could tow it.

i was pretty impressed how well it actually pulled it. specially being on 33's. didnt like stopping to much though.

OMG I kid you not the other day on the way home from school I saw a CIVIC towing a RIDGELINE. No I didnt get that mixed up the civic had a strap and it was pulling the ridgeline. I wish I would have gotten a picture.

Haha, there's no way I'd do that with my truck. Would probably burn the clutch in no time. Looks awesome tho.
