Last weekend I hooked up my 63 C10 and yanked it across the state from my mothers house to my new place here in Goldsboro. Truck was pretty heavy, it didnt help I had my 500lb gun safe in the bed of the truck too.

I bet you could have backed it up about a foot and had less tongue weight then. Nice looking Chevy, like them big tires on the rear! :)

Yea or you could have put it on the trailer backwards, That would have taken a lot of wieght of the Titan and put it on the trailer wheels, but its good to see the Titan handled it without any issues.

Nice truck's! I love the old ford & chevy pickup's! :)

You know it's funny that if you spell chevy lower case it tries to tell you the c need's to be capitalized. LOL

I had to put the Chevy that far up due to the way the straps work on the U haul trailer. I also couldnt back it up there cause too much of the bed of the chevy would have been hanging over in front of the trailer. I tried that after I laoded it up originally, but the bed of the chevy was about 8" fron the bed of the Titan and that was a no go, would have been some serious damage. Also the Safe was in the bed of the T, in hind sight I wish I would have loaded it in the bed of the chevy to help take some weight off the T, but the truck handled it great all the way across the state of NC and even up and down the mountain on I-40 near Asheville. Also got a MPG of 11.8 the whole trip, put the cruise on 55mph and just took my time.

Nice 63!!! You're selling it? Wish I had the extra funds. I also like the 68-70 GMC trucks.

Yeah im selling it, I really need a 4x4 quad to get my broke knee *** around the hunting property. So the selling of one toy will finance the purchase of another.
