    No it's not the typical trailer and that's why I love it. I have a picture of my 4Runner all loaded up but I'll just post the manufacturers website then you will get a better idea of what all its capable of. Made here in Salt Lake City. http://www.jumpingjacktrailers.com/

    Pulled my Polaris Ranger on a 10' flat bed trailer 700 mile round trip. Pulled it good but only got 12 mpg. But hey That's 1 better mpg's than my Ford V10 would have gotten. Not sure which truck I will take next time.

    From Fontana to Long Beach without using over drive and keeping speeds between 60 and 65 the whole way with ECT on. Trailer is about 1500 pounds. Wasn't going to win any drag races but the truck handled it very well. Biggest concern was someone trying to change lanes and squeeze in clipping the trailer. With it being so low most people didn't expect it and it almost took a hit twice.

    No... no... don't think you'd want to do that. Probably push that truck beyond its limits. LOL

    Yeah, my race truck will be going on the back. Truck sits at 4k pounds right now. Won't have it back for awhile though as its going through a round of improvements.

    I thought about making an extremely sarcastic thread about mpg improvements and stupid statements like some of the threads that have been popping up lately.
