Maybe you've seen this, but it's worth another look to really believe people can be this dumb!!!!
"Yup!! That outta work!"
(The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits!! )
Class lll Hitch Install... (patent pending..)
Wouldn't you love to see how the trip went...? Good chance he ended up doin' some unintended off roadin' somewhere. Check the 'hills' in the background. How'ja like to meet this rig on a two-lane road....coming down the mountain in your direction...?
She's hitched up and ready to roll!! Amazin' how the extra weight smoothes out the ride. Needed to air up the rear tires a bit ('bout 160 psi).
Added some super heavy-duty chain for extra support on the tailgate, (note the 'Heavy-Duty 'S' hooks to attach the chain) Also paid up for some BIG Number 5/16 sheet metal screws to attach the Reese hitch frame to the tailgate (see 'em there? one on each side...) Likely two more through the carpet into the floor pan inside....
Yep, probably overkill, but didn't want the possibility of having an 'axerdent'.
Most of the time was spent on the front porch whittling down that MASSIVE solid pine 4x4 to fit precisely down into the hole in the ball mount receiver.
Note also - The 14''x14'' piece of 3/8'' plywood on the underside of the tailgate to distribute the load more evenly and beef up that tailgate support. A MAN CAN'T BE TOO SAFE!!
SO NOW WE KNOW.... Dear God, help us all!!!
