My exhaust is pretty loud in the cab too if that helps and I had a professional do it

Go for it! They're awesome dogs. That is my third one. She just turned 1 on April first. This is the most aggressive/dominant Rotty I've had and she's still a sweetheart. For the most part they have the personality of a Golden Retriever. (They just look like they want to eat you!)

Just be warned, while they are great dogs, they can be very assertive. Set the rules and start training on day one. And above all make it clear who the boss is right from the start. They're very cute as puppies but they grow quickly and you don't want a pushy dog who weighs 120lbs and intimidates everyone who walks in the door.

Exactly, I've done a lot of research. The perfect dog with the right training, the Dog whisperer is my best friend haha. Also quick question, I see you live in NJ, I'm moving up there in about a week. I see the state Law doesn't allow tint on the front windows, how strict are they with this up there? I just purchased my WK and it has Tint everywhere else but on the front, I think it looks weird. Do you think I will have a problem if I match it with the back?
thanks

I get hassled about once a year for the tint. Usually they just use it as an excuse to get a closer look. I see lots of tinted windows up here though. It used to be a pain when they had yearly vehicle inspections, as they would make you remove it for inspection. But since they did away with that you just have to worry about the cops. As long as you're not doing anything stupid I believe it's just a $30 fine. I've had all my vehicles tinted for the past 20 years and I only got a ticket a few times.

Where are you moving to?

I have had my f150 tinted for over 4 years now and have never been pulled over for it. My gf got a ticket for having her WK tinted about a month ago... $54 to the township of Princeton.

Buda's pup is a big sweetheart too!

Thanks for the info guys, figured it wouldn't be a big deal so I'm most likely gonna' go ahead with it. And Buda I'm heading up to Little Falls in Passaic county. It's North East about 20 min out of NYC, right around where Giants stadium is. I'm moving from South Florida so it's gonna' be a long drive but kinda excited to break in the new Jeep lol. How far's Woodbridge? Btw been checking out your build, looks awesome.

That sucks, my buddy that I coach with gave me a Sherrifs Office Family Member Gold Card. He told me it's not a "Free Pass" but it will help. Other people have said I can transport a dead body through NJ with that card and no one will bother me.

That's not far from me at all. I'm about 20 minutes from the NJ Giants Stadium.

And thank you.

Pulled a conversion van to the gas station. Easy - Peazy! My first time being the tower & not the towee.

Mental notes:
A.) Don't let someone else attach my strap to their vehicle, lest they tie it in a knot. Just Sayin'.
B.) More brake when putting tension in the line. I was feathering the brake (thought that would be slow enough). When it hit the end of the strap, that Jeep said "Go". Pretty sure the other guy & I weren't ready.

Either way, I got the strap to help people & I had a lot of fun doing it.
