Overloading you 90..

I was looking through some pictures from the most recent cross country trip and when i saw this I couldn't help but to remeber the voice in the back of my head screaming at me as I tripled the recommended tongue weight.

Good thing you don't have kids yet. Then again, their stuff could go on the front of the roof rack and bring the front wheels down a bit.

So you actually did a wheelie across country?? Did you get better gas milage with 2 1/2 wheels making asphalt contact at any given time?

Considering I had no sway bars, i look back on it and wonder how something didn't go horribly wrong driving cross country and back. But about the wheelie.. i actually got close. Going up a steep switchback road in Colorado the rear sat so far that both rear tires started rubbing into the wheel wells and the fronts started chirping on the pavement. I actually had to use difflock just to keep going. It was messed up
