    This was a few weeks ago, it pulls my Jeep pretty good.. I set the cruise at 60 in Drive and forget about it. I can't tell it's back there. It's sitting a little lower in the back in this picture due to about 400 lbs of tractor weights.

    Forgot to update with this bit of ridiculousness. I pulled the backhoe to my buddy's place to do some work for the day. I pulled it on backroads, kept it around 2400rpm in 2nd gear at 60 ish km/h. It felt ok for power and the trailer handles the weight awesome but it got a bit warm and I backed off a couple times too. Not a highway rated load. The hoe is 17k and the trailer is 8500. Gross combined 31.5k lbs. Closed course, professional driver.

    First pic explains why I built the truck in the second pic. Truck in second pic is DT466 powered and will mean the GMT400s have an easier life in the future.

    Still some work on the deck and painting the frame and tanks and stuff to go on the big one.
