His pickup definitely pulls it way better, the tires on that jeep look like they're about to rub the fender

Helped moved my aunt's things yesterday, and had a little fun doing it.

Default Track support vehicle

Over the weekend the truck was used as a support vehicle when running my car at the track:




It's loaded with my rain tires, 14 gal gas can, my two boxes full of extra oil and brake fluid, tools, jack, spare brake rotors and pads, compressor, my crew chief's (wife's) chairs, table, cooler, and a bunch of other junk.

It's nice to be able to easily carry all that stuff!!!

Bob

There are a lot of large ones available from a bunch of sources for farms, boats, snowmobiles, ATV's and such.

I got this 14 gal one from Northern Tool. They had it on sale for 20 bux off, and I had a $20 coupon, so it cost me $100:

My car doesn't get very good mileage on the track:




A 30 minute track session at Daytona is probably 50 miles, so the 18 gal tank in my car is down below 1/2 a tank when I come in off the track.

I need a good supply of extra gas so I don't have to drive out to a filling station after every session.

Just pick up my new trailer last weekend and the truck towed it great. Even with the 35s the truck wasn't down shifting like crazy, only on steep inclines. It's not much, but it will hold all of the gfs stuff and mine for our move to Thunder Bay.
