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.
