good news.... and bad news too

hey guys,
as some of you know i have been ITCHING! to tow some loads with my cummins. welll.... this week i did.

i am currently in the process of moving and this week i towed a LOT of stuff.

i have nooo idea how much i towed each time but here is what was towed on my heaviest run:

1. 4 FULL SIZE snap-on toolboxes filled with tools
2. 20 salt bags
3. five SBC engines
4. 300 GM training manuals (the big MUTHAFU**A's!)
5. a few misc little things

lets just say she was squattin' a little bit. lol. i have never heard the beautiful harmony of a cummins under a massive load (with a manual too)!!

well that was the good news. heres the bad news...

now i want to tow something EVERYTIME i drive the truck. i just COULDNT get enough of that turbo whistle (with the cheap air intake mod!).

i have a question for ya guys though.

if i could find a job towing with the gooseneck should i do it?

would anyone advise against it because of the wear and tear??

thanks for reading my stupid little story for this week.

thanks guys,
erik

ya. i just cant even explain how the cummins sounded. hearing a cummins under a load for the first time was unexplainable. its definitly something everyone should experience at least once in their life.
