Be carefull cause i will be waiting with a 12 guage shotgun.

Helped me-

I am a newbie to pickups. Drove Dodge vans (318- great engine!!) for over 650,00 miles as my work vehicle. Semi retired now.
Want to get a simple ball for light duty. Log splitter, etc. This thread did help.
I run on the beach ( Chevy Blazer, defunct now, hence the Taco),love to surf fish. Never had to dig out or be pulled out.

Did the spec sheet show what it would be @ 90 degrees that 1200 Lbs @ 45 degrees will decrease as it get closer to 90.

Please let this thread die and never do what I did. Lessons learned (luckily not be an incident but coming to my senses)... Just don't use this method. Poor thread was doing just fine dying a slow death and then had to get resurrected.
