        no offenser but that scares me to see that on the road . have u ever used that before ? if theres any way to get that load more onto the axle that what u need to do first because if u think about it weights will get the front end down maybe but ur rear end is still goin to be saggin. if theres any way u can buy or borrow a truck i would suggest that.

          LOL you need to go to HF and get one of them $10 bed extenders that hook up to the hitch and use that to help suport the load. that was a jok!!!! do not think it will work in any way.

          if its not a joke and you actualy want to pull that with the blazer you need to cut the top off and get the hitch over the axel. then install heavy duty breaks and make shore the trailor breaks are working befor even thinking of moveing it. the best solution would be rent the right truck. i have to say i sereously hope this is a joke and you are not realy trying to do this. if you do intend to do it, at the verry least you need to take the top off the blazer and mount the hitch in the right spot over the rear axel. although i dont think you have the pull capasity or wait alowances for it. odds are you wil get pulled off the road by the first cop that you pass if you try it, cirtenly no way you will be let threw a tole booth.

                got to admit a stupid pic like that and someone thinkin of pulling a load like that with it is real funny . reminds me of hearin when my dad was a kid him and my g-pa moved a trailor house that was about a 70 footer with a 3/4 ton truck . my dad said every once in a while theyd hit a bump and the front end would hit the ground and get better trackion but it was slow goin the whole way and watchin for the law seein as there was no way they were sertified movers. my g-pa has said its was an experience to remember and hes never gonna do it again .

                    Got to admit, that definitely wins "Redneck trailer hitch of the week".

                      This reminds me of something I saw in Monterrey, Mexico last December.

                      I saw a S-10 sized truck with a 40ft semi trailer hooked to it. I'm guessing it was empty.

                      P.S. Here's another good picture.

                        i dont think them fancy rims are rated for that much wait.
                        its amazing how stupid some people can be, and servive.
                        just scary.

                          scary

                          Here's the scary part of this post, someone has tried this and surely someone else is gonna try this or something else as equally stupid or dangerous and is out there tooling down our highways as we speak with some other dangerous stuff. Being in a business dealing with trailers as the main part of my business, I see quite a bit of dangerous stuff being pulled down the highway, almost makes me not want to drive anymore. I can't help but think of all the victims of these highway tragedies that could have been prevented if the people responsible had used a little common sense. Dave

                            I was going to suggest welding some plate under the engine compartment to close the bottom part of it off then pour/fill the engine compartment area with concrete. then weld a mount onto the front bumper for your tractor weights. Cutting the top off and mounting the 5th wheel above the rear axle would help too but you will need to boost the suspension in the whole truck!!!
