Hauled two 250 gallon of water containers. One was full, it was placed closest to the cab the empty one was on the rear so I could unload it by hand. Then I transferred the water from the full one inside my truck bed to the empty one on the ground.
Water weighs 8.33 lbs per gallon = 2,082.5 lbs
Plus two containers = (@150 lbs each)
Hauled it almost 20 miles up & down rolling hills along a curvy 2 lane country back road.
Before that I hauled all of the 1/2" decking plywood, plus tar paper rolls, plus shingles for the roof to a 20'x20' cabin I built.
Both times my tires were rubbing on the fender wells.
I have also hauled a 5 piece leather sectional. It had 2 reclining sections, pull out sleeper and a chaise lounge. Hauled it over 100 miles. Heavy & an awkward load to strap down.
The largest towing I've done was a 16ft double axle enclosed trailer w/ barn doors in the back and a sidedoor & rooftop air conditioning. It was loaded with tables, chairs and camping equipment and sound system. I was turbo charged with this feat. Barking the tires when shifting to second gear.
I was more curious if I could actually do it than I was safe. No safety chains, no trailer brakes, no tow hitch (just a ball on the bumper)
On the first flat part of the road, I gave it all she got from a stop out to about 1/2mi. I got it up to 80+mph. After than, I slowed it down to norval speeds for the country road I was on. I pulled it great for the short 20 miles I needed to pull it.
I use it as the truck it is. Many times hauling my Harley Davidson bagger. Once from Arkansas to El Paso, TX. & back.
nothing too major, but heres a pic from my arlo camera that i could find of an engine hoist haul lol truck is lowered 3/4 and for some reason rides better with a semi heavy load, why is that? sorry shitty pic but better than no pic.
