my buddy cut some 2x10 to match the profile of the fender. he sandwiched them to the vertical surface on the inside of the fender. that takes the load when driving his 5000 lb jeep with full width axles over the ramps

Here's my 98 Z71 (may she rust in peace) towing home my second 1982 H***a Silverwing 500 that I restored and sold. I really miss that truck.

I "built" a cheap rusty 5spd blazer to screw around offroad. Way too rusty to pass inspection, so that means more work for the 8.1/6spd. I got some progress pics in my truck thread.

I used to do a fair amount of towing with the old truck. This was my 2005 Sea Ray. We've since traded it for a pontoon which stays at our lake cottage.

This is when we were closing up our lake cottage (OK, seasonal RV), and I was towing t the golf cart home.

I have not had a chance to tow with the new truck, yet!

Not really pulling anything cool, but been wanting to hook something up to this truck, since I got it, last week.

Light load at only 2100lbs, but got a quick towing fix. Pulled great, and the auto light test the truck can do is pretty handy.
