That's a heavy trailer, better consider going to 16" tires.

The higher your expectations the fewer your options.

As I see it now....not as it was......This from the Urban Dictionary

A pimpmobile is a term used to describe a large luxury vehicle, usually a 1970s-era Lincoln or Cadillac car, that has been heavily customized in a garish, extravagant style. Customized features such as headlight covers {known as 'Superfly Headlights'} hood ornaments, LOUD stereo systems, unusual paint colors, and shag carpet interiors, Mirrors on the floor/cieling of the car, were used by car owners/Pimps to advertise their purported wealth and major importance.

These customized vehicles were popular with pimps in the ghettos of large cities of the US in the 1970s and 1980s, especially New York City, Detroit and Los Angeles, as a way of symbolizing their power to their community. By the 1990s and 2000s, the term was used to describe any car that was too fancy/godi

Pimpmobiles became part of popular culture when they were depicted in 1970s films such as Superfly and The Mack. In later days they also appeared in Austin Powers in Goldmember and Undercover Brother. The conversions became popular with Americans of all races, and several companies manufactured kits to convert late-model cars to pimpmobiles.
