Hows that ranger pull that truck? How far you normally tow it?

ETA: If you backed that yota on the trailer might help with the stance of your truck. Being the trailer would be holding most of the engine weight

I don't think those were "WTF looks" I think those were "I can't believe I'm in the road with this guy" looks

Nice area out there. Her family lives in Lizella and we have a ton of land in Gray and Jones County. I managed the Thunderbird Liquor store off Emery Hwy back in college. That was/is a fun place.
