That's funny,we always take the wife's Jeep too when I know we won't be able to pick and choose a parking spot at an event

New Hensley installed. Excellent service from Can Am. The hitch feels better and transfers more weight forward than the old one. I think the failure was due to a faulty weld at the wd bar cylinder. I did notice some grease on the trailer end of the stinger that could only have come from one of the wd bar cylinders. I assumed that this was normal. I now guess that it is not. 10-4

In the scenario of a big crowded event we will go on the motorcyle to get a better parking spot.

Believe me you'll never get there.

Just because the cat had kittens in the oven, don't make them biscuits.

Hi, I have a 2008 Suburban, but I am thinking of going to a 2500. I only tow a bambi, but when I travel for work, my car is packed for festivals, middle and rear seats are removed altogether and serious weight is loaded in. The Bambi sits low and by the time I get the bArs on, The bottom of my hitch sits very low to ground. I have to be careful not to drag on curbs. Any thoughts? I feel my 1500 sits wAy too low. Would the 2500 sit higher or would a 2500 only mean I could use less chain? I have a reese Bambi pulls just fine.

Do you have any special hitch system? Special brakes? Mirrors?
