Modern tow rigs

It seems that modern tow rigs are coming equipped with underwater breathing gear! No need to set the brake at the ramp! LOL

That's a sharp truck, and in my favorite color!

Mine can drown I'm sure!
But y'all'd be surprised how well a Dodge Avenger can handle mud, loose sand and rutted trails!

I've seen a few of these around here in Central Texas also.  They kinda weird looking with that exhaust pipe up next and over the cab.

You buy a new truck?

Those are for the folks what don't know how and won't bother to figure out how to use their parking brakes. ~roflmao ~roflmao ~roflmao Love the videos of trucks up to their roofs at the launch, saw one where the tow vehicle was underwater and the truck that went to rescue it was in up to it's roof and both trucks and trailer had to rescued. The funniest was the video of a police trailer and boat floating out into the lake, they never secured the hitch, the chief drove through and drove away shaking his head.

~roflmao That's a snorkel Don. The exhaust still comes out the back. ~roflmao

Nope, just lookin' a little. That's the small Toyota, Tacoma I think. Really good looking truck but not quite enough towing capacity for me.

The Colorado Diesel 4X4 has a tow rating over 7,000, if you need more than that then consider a Peterbilt. lo lo ;)

Peterbilt would be awesome!  ~roflmao

I'm hoping to stay in the 10-15K lb tow range. Most all my trucks have been heavy duty series. I like the added control I feel I have pulling the boat with a big heavy rig. My 2500HD GMC allows me to pull just about anything I can hitch up and I have a payload capacity of a couple tons. It's just hard to give all that up when you're used to having it.
