Pictures of unique tow vehicles.......
 
A member on the Supra forum started a cool thread to post pics of cool or unique tow vehicles....
Kind of a cool thread. Lets see if we can post pics of cool or unique tow vehicles. Not the run of the mill 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton pickups and SUV's. Maybe unique ones, monster lifts, lowered, classics, etc......

Not mine, but it is a buddy's and we did tow my boat with it once.... It is a bit over the top if you can't tell....

This one is mine. Not the ultimate tow rig, but certainly unique and brings me closer to Lon

Your setup is sick. Lon's was stupid. Do not compare your legit H1 and actual wakeboard boat to LON's H2 suburban fist pumping rapper mobile and fakeboard boat (crapper included).

Here is my tow ride. Sorry for the poor picture. It is all I have on my phone.

Not really a tow vehicle, but I have been looking at these lately to help move my boat in and out of a garage that is just too small. I've only moved it in and out once but each time I had to hitch and unhitch it to my truck 3 times with manual moves in between in order to get it into the garage and moved all the way over to one side and then up a set of ramps I built to use the concrete lip at the front of the garage.

I know it doesn't really fit in this thread but it is a rather unique tow vehicle...

I just bought one - works great. I bought the AC8 (power mover) for $900 used on craigslist. It really works but you have to use the mount that comes with it, not your trailer tongue. Tried the tongue and there just wasn't enough weight.

Not a boat, but I think this is just about the coolest tow vehicle.

I wouldn't mind pulling my boat with my '68, maybe after converting to disc brakes.

A few more cool pics...

Greg is putting in at Old North State Marina on Badin Lake in NC in that picture.. That ramp is getting towards the back of a cove it's pretty shallow right there.

A shot of my buddy's neighbor's truck. The wind is blowing today & making the ice head north causing some problems with the docks. He decided to use the old Power Wagon to hold the dock in place.

Simplej. He's not actually hooked up to it. He's posted the pic before and said he just parked right up to the hitch to look like it.

brett33 03-22-2012 9:05 AM

It sure looks like it's hooked up! The car appears to be squatting and I don't see a jack down on the trailer...

bzubke1 03-22-2012 11:57 AM

I'm pretty sure I've seen posts before where he said he's moved it around the driveway with it before.

Raf1985 03-29-2012 5:10 PM

Not quite towing with it yet but hopefully will be by this summer once I get plates on it.

What is the deal with the mad max rig? What is in it? Home made? For the dunes or streets. Pretty cool

Raf1985 03-29-2012 7:01 PM

Adam, can you please post a pic of your boat on the water. The entire setup looks amazing in your pics but I have a feeling that boat looks sick as hell on the water sparkeling.

Dmac420sj 05-16-2012 9:06 PM

I saw a guy who slammed a jeep , just saying i don't care what kinda jeep you got if you slam it your a ****!

sippi 05-17-2012 5:22 AM

Sheldon, i like the man hole at the top, is that for shooting slow people at the ramp>?

wakecumberland 05-17-2012 6:46 AM

Thanks Brett, I'm taking it out today and will try to get some good on water shots. I really want to get a new boatmate trailer painted white to complete the look. I'll start a new thread.

sippi 05-17-2012 6:48 AM

I like that black trailer, you don't have a lot of white going on there, keep it all gunmetal and black. maybe two-tone the trailer with some of that gunmetal..

wakecumberland 05-17-2012 6:50 AM

I think Brett was talking to the Adam with the LSV and not me with the Woody. Sorry about that. :)

Goodness that yukon is gorgeous. Well done sir.

dusty2221 05-17-2012 7:14 AM

Hey Adam R-

Did you do the Denali Front end swap yourself? I have a 2009 that I want to do it to. What all was needed?

wakecumberland 05-17-2012 9:01 AM

Dusty, I did do it myself with the help of a body shop friend. I'll be posting a build thread soon on GMFS forums listing all the part numbers and such. The total in parts was around $2500. Here is a quick list:

Hood
Fenders
Bumper
Frame horns/bumper brackets
Headlights
Headlight supports
Headlamp wiring connnectors
Hood mouldings
Grille
Hood springs
Rad core support
Fender liners

If you decide its something you want to pursue let me know and I'll do what I can to help.
