    Well, put the GMC on the trailer to take her 50 mile to Grand Rapids to have the engine replaced. Truck developed a rod knock the other day, so we decided to put a new reman in her. Decided to trailer it up there......didnt want to throw a rod on the hightway and damage the core!

    Sorry I didnt resize, I think part of photobuckets website is down as it wont let me resize.

    I had the same thing the other day with my brothers truck. It burned up the flywheel in his 2500 diesel so I pulled it over the the mechanic. I told him I had to stop for something and he said what? I said I have got to show the guys this. Sorry for the dark pics.

    You should turn that towed truck around to face forward ..
    Your going to get a lot of wind drag facing back wards...

    Wind really has nothing to do with it, but it would trailer better at speed with the engine in the front. More tongue weight = less fishtailing.

    There was plenty of tounge weight. If I put her on forward, that is more weight on the tounge then I wanted.

    The only reason the Ford is sitting level is because all the weight is on the rear of the trailer.

    Ford....Chevy....blah blah blah. I'm just saying, it's not even loaded right. Try hauling that thing down the highway and tell us how much it fish tails. Or better yet, try jacking the wheel back and forth and see what happens. You may want pray before you try it at anything over 40 MPH.

    I pulled it 50 miles on the highway with no fishtailing at 60mph. There was plenty of tounge weight. I am a truck driver, so i know how important the positioning of your load is. It did set the rear of the ford down about 2 inches.
    I was just cracking on the chevy being on a trailer behind a ford, not that the ford pulles it better than a chevy. I acually plow in that chevy, it plows great, I have nothing against chevy, I was just always raised around fords.:redbounce
