Hahah I thought about making the trip down. But I won't be this year. It is waaaaayyyy up near Canada. I'm about 20 minutes from the border.

Today was the first hard braking test with these tires. As it always happens, I glanced to see what my passenger was doing and looked up to a deer standing in the middle of the road. I started braking slowly figuring it would move and naturally it didn't. I ended up on the brakes quite hard and the tires just stuck to the ground. Didn't even have any abs, the tires were just planted. I know it wasn't that the brakes were weak cause I had both arms extended to keep me from eating the wheel as well as the unexpecting girlfriend's hands on the dash (she wasn't looking at the road at the time). Ended up stopping about 5 feet short just for it to trot away casually.

I honked at it and gave it the bird. I hope you get shot this upcoming hunting season.

^I hate deer during this time of year. When I bought my WK, it was in the body shop getting a new front end because the PO hit a deer doing 55.

And to stay on topic, I went to pull my FIL utility trailer only to figure out I need a huge drop hitch. The 2" lift and F150 Monroe's put the tail way up in the air.

Folks with similiar setup's, what size drop hitch do you use?

I used a 4" and still had some rake on the Motorcycle trailer. The best thing would be to get one of those adjustable hitches. Gives you a choice of about 0-8" above or below the receiver so it can be used for multiple trailers.

I used a 7" for the snowmobile trailer I pulled the other day. However I gave a 5 3/4 that will work for anything with decent sized tires. (boats or enclosed trailers). At last we know for sure we won't have to flip the ball for a rise ever. ;-)

LOL yea the only time that we would need to flip it for a rise would be for a goose neck trailer, lol.

Ok I got an 8" drop but I may be returning it for the adjustable one like Buda mentioned.
