Saw this online '49 Studebaker

I saw this online on our local trading site. This one is in MT, so too far for me to go look for another member. Looks kind of beat, but seller says everything's there including the air cleaner....

Tow/Haul mode on, cruise control on, and just let her buck. Only time I'll worry about the cruise control is when I'm driving on ice covered roads, then I switch off the cruise control.

Both can be very handy. I was mostly thinking that since you already had one flat bed trailer (albeit a large one), that maybe an enclosed would add some versatility?

Something like this (24 ft)?...

I like the Ranch Hand guards, but haven't pulled the trigger on one yet. I've seen a few "after" pics of guys hitting deer with one of those, and there's very little damage even to the guard, let...

Hey there neighbor to the south,

Have you also considered an enclosed trailer? For moving show cars during inclement weather? I have a 20ft flatbed, and there are times I'll get "caught" in a rain...

I agree, way too "Chevy" in the front. I don't like it. Not at all impressed with the move to aluminum components either.

Just my 2 cents.

Personally, I think that is a *really* bad idea. It's just asking for a full front end tear down and rebuild in your very near future. Just my opinion, but "Murphy" lives at my place, so no way I'd...

About 2 thousand pounds of weight in the bed ought to do the trick.

Or alternately,

If you're driving around most of the time with no load in bed, air your tires down to 50-60 psi. Just don't...

Just because an engine can make 800 lbft of torque does not mean you have to call for all 800 every second. There are more than 2 throttle positions *idle* *wide open*.

It's like back in the true...

That's a real heavy car trailer at 3K pounds. Mine also weighs 2K and it's a 20 ft flatbed, with a full wood bed. I think you would be fine with a half ton truck pulling that CJ5 around. If that is...
