I resembled that remark yesterday. I took a load of construction debris to the landfill with my 1989 Bronco II V6 because I didn't want to risk a puncture to my Excursion or Land Rover, either of which could have towed the load (2000 lbs + the weight of the trailer) handily. The Bronco II reminded me of Grinch's dawg trying to pull Grinch's sleigh with his pilfered goodies! It overheated and I had to wait in the blistering Florida sun for it to cool down to add water and be on my way. The next time, risk of puncture or not, I'm taking the Excursion!

Slightly off the subject but last summer I rented a 1 yard dump from the local rent all and filled it with dirt to take to the dump. When I got to the dump the guy made me leave a deposit before I dumped because he said the dump fee would be $300+. He said the rig weighed 22,000 on the scale. The GVWR for the Ford 350 powerstroke was 16,500!!!!!! THought the steering felt pretty light.

JB: Landfill! No hills in my neck of Florida. Have to go to the Redneck Riviera (Panhandle) to see mountainous Florida with some mountains hitting 400 feet above msl.

Yeh, we do a lot of snowskiing here in the panhandle mountain range. :)
