The 'True' power of the 4.0

Some around here didnt believe me... When I said, how tuff my truck is.

Heres proof. My truck, pulling a 30ft boat.

Btw, the rear sway bar has eliminated ALL 'wobble' on the rear end from the boat pushing my truck around around. And no, im not dumb enough to leave the property with it.





the rear suspension is ALMOST completely maxed out... I have literally 1 inch from the bump stops





little rubber ducky keeping an eye on things...



This truck keeps amazing me at its capabilities...

Anyone wanna buy a boat?

I think it's a repost too. I think he moved it out of the grass onto the drive way last time and this time he moved it into the middle of the driveway. Some people get board and buy truck parts(me) and others get board and move boats around the driveway(FMD).

Some people get board at Home Depot, too. I prefer, Lowe's however

Nice boat. How much are you asking for it? My dad is kind of looking for a boat, but he needs a better truck to pull it with first (a 4.7 liter Tundra isn't enough for a boat that size, considering it had troubles with a 19' Sea Ray with an inboard outboard 302).
