Going to get the truck

We left for Gastin, SC from Birmingham, AL to pickup the truck.

Here’s a first look at the truck.


We towed an empty flatbed with an F250 over to SC with the intent of towing the F250 back with the 5 ton. We realized once we got there that the lunette ring on the trailer didn’t fit the pintle¬†hitch on the truck. The solution was to grind down the pintle hitch to fit the lunette ring. The only place we could find with an outlet was a strip mall in front of a hair salon.

We finally got the trailer to fit and loaded up. Here’s a picture of the final rig on the way home.

She drove really good – like she was new. For comparison purposes, here it is expanded next to my Honda Accord.
