    Exclamation

    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.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    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 .
