4-cylinder can haul

Close to 1k lbs worth of logs was hauled today by a 4-cylinder sitting on 30" tires. Had no problem going up hills.



Might not seem like a lot but this all came from the truck and trailer.





Git r' done!

I also own a 4 banger, its amazing how much you can tow with a relative small amount of power... I think the transmission is the trick.

Here some pictures of mine taking nearly 2k lb of construction materials.

Hey Adam... did you use a flat trailer? or a dolly ? a month ago I was thinking in towing another car with a dolly (Camry) but was unsure and pass.

i would think it would be ok on a dolly. i towed a mustang on a dolly, i have a 4.0 and it was slow going up big hills but thats just the nature of the beast. as long as there isnt a lot of hills i dont see y not.

These little trucks can do some work. Luckily I put a 4.0 radiator in mine, so when its really hot outside and I do some towing I don't worry about overheating when it climbing up hills.
