I have taken extraordinary safety precautions.....Note the 4x4 wood block and the 1x4 board to "safely" distribute the weight
over the entire tail gate, and the redundant "safety" chains hooked
directly into the sheet metal, taking no chances there. Also noteworthy is
the old world craftsmanship used to attach the 4x4 to the trailer hitch, a
dowel is being used instead of nails.

I think the GCWR may be exceeded on the S-10.

This has to be a joke! If not I am really scared that I might actually see, or follow this project

We know that Route 66's coach is a fine looking rig; however, what is really scary is that somebody else might really have that pictured rig, Ken,'04 DSDP

Looks good to me--though you might want to bump up the air pressure in those rear tires!

Out fit that Blazer with a set of home-made duallies and some Timbren springs and he'll be good to go, provided his chains and S-hooks hold out.

It may not be necessary, with all the redundancy, but he should really consider provisions for a breakaway cable to be attached to the tow vehicle, just in case.
