Drove it down to shreveport to pick up some parts for my buddy's cj and my old Toyota pickup to get them back on the road. First time pulling a trailer with the Jeep and I was surprised how well it handled it

Sorry locker in a d30lp scares me, especially if you have the 249. I won't lock my d35, asking for lots o' trouble.
