    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    i bet it isn't even hooked up. Someone just backed up to the camper. Show me a picture of a working 5th wheel hitch for a taco, and i'll believe that it can be hooked up, but not have the power to tow that.

    It's my truck! I just had the topper removed because I am trading in the truck tomorrow morning and I couldn't resist backing my truck under that giant toy box, it's bigger than my apartment!
