......I just seen this....Ramius, Nice X...
i wish i had more pics of all the trailers that i have towed with the x, too many cars to the junk yard
Here's mine towing a couple of jetskis.
Here's my tow. Yes it's just a wee bit over the rated limit LOL. I don't pull it over 50~55 mph.
geeezus! is that how you get over the large rivers witht the ex? put the boat in and pull onto it?
OMG!!! Gerald... That Poor Explorer after all you put it thru wheeling you tow that Monster with it too?
Yep that's what my Explorer does on its day off. LOL
I ordered a 10" drop for my explorer today. Got the bumper put on and just needed the insert. Just hapeens it needs to be huge
Ten inch drop is not enough.
....My hitch sets 3-4" below my stock bumper....It allows me to use my adjustable hitch up to about 8" of drop....I usually end up at about 7"...A 12"-14" drop is going to cost a pretty penney...Can you return your 10"???
....My hitch also makes a good skid plate...
Is that a rollback pic from when the seal blown? If so you didnt coat your underbody like mine did
Yeah hitch is actually higher than the stock bumper ball would be. I almost did a set up like you but i dont want to have it under there. Plus the new bumper has it build in
...Yea, my Rangers windshield is dirty but, My pillars are the same color as my truck...:
I know i know lol i have been meaning to do that. I may get it done after the sale of the drive in is finished
...But your X looks sharp...:biggthump
...You could always put a hitch tight up under that bumper and leave a clevis in the bumper hole...
I dont want the drag. I was dragging my stock height bumper as it was. This one is almost 1.5 inches higher
...Plate it like a swamp buggy...
Were gonna custom make (well make the one in the pic) a 15" drop.
Old pic before lift and tires on the X, But I still tow this almost daily.
More current pics
is what towed my race trailer b4 i got my explorer also gonna get a bigger trailer since i got my exlporer
Here's the trailer I pull. It's a 1967 that we picked up just for hunting and did a SOA with longer spring hangers so we could get it into some of our favorite spots. A weight distribution hitch is next on the list.
Here is my 05 Sport Trac pulling my 05 Interstate Cargo 6x14 trailer. The picture is taken in Wyoming during a 3 hour stop after a huge wreck, during our move to Kentucky.
I bought the trailer primarily to move, and if I get another bike. That's my wife's Jetta behind me.
..But why Kentucky, and isn't that black truck a little close to your wifes bumper..
