Cool to load that behind the axles on the trailer. Cool way to die.

Used to deal with this shit regularly when I was in college and installed trailer hitches for U-haul. Used to love watching trailers getting dropped back off at the centre on a tow truck because idiots wouldn't listen and would blow up their vehicle because they didn't listen regarding having a proper hitch/vehicle to tow. So many stories....

Show me your tie down job on it since I am tie down police.
Strap wrapped around rear axle once hooked in to two different tie downs.

Same with front, except some support bar instead of axle.

The front strap was loose after the ride home :run:

I may get actual pictures tomorrow since we're going out again.

I use 10k rated straps for my RZR.

I want to get better straps. Mainly ones that latch to the tie-down and can't fall off.


But it was late and the only other straps we had were shitty 300lb ones. I thought about using them but knew they would suck. Lol

I don't want to hijack the thread but my favourite was the 2 Arab guys that wanted to tow a piece of shit Hyundai Stellar with their equally shitty Hyundai Stellar. There was no hitch available for that vehicle that was capable of towing that much weight so I advised them of that AND that the vehicle was not capable of towing that much weight and would likely blow up their transmission and/or motor. Dudes who up the next day with a class 3 hitch from some other vehicle modified and welded to the frame of their piece of shit car so my manager against my advice rented them a tow dolly to move the car. Tow dolly shows up later that day on a tow truck and the driver told us the guys were flipping out because the transmission blew up 15 minutes into towing the other car. Had another one where a guy didn't want to listen regarding cranking his hitch ball onto his receiver too tightly and took an impact gun to tighten the fuck out of it. Well he overtightened it and it sheared off on the northern TransCanada highway towing an auto transport with some vintage car on it and destroyed the trailer and the car. I have a million of these stories that place was like a fucking magnet for idiots and trashy people.
