    It probably won't happen but is there a way to make it work?

    This massive railroad tie is 9"x7"x160" (also stupid heavy) and needs to move 30 miles up the freeway. I can't figure out a way to do it in my Taco but maybe someone out there has an idea ... I've seen some crazy smart things here on TW.

    Update: success! see post #23

    Looks like the Harbor Freight one has a load capacity of 350lb. I think I'll give it a shot, just printed my 20% off coupon

    The front D-ring tiedown mod would be ideal for strapping this thing down.

    Actually, I've seen people do the opposite and tie stuff under the car/truck before..
    Not sure I'd try it going 30 miles though unless it was all back road country driving lol
