I always look tired, AND, I'm always Smiling, just can't tell, ha! :smilewink:  One thing on this U-haul GMC which is not in pix is it has plenty of torque, more than my Chevy seems to have. I bet it is a 4.10 rear in it and mine is 3.57 or similar. Quite a difference when driving on my yard or the gravel in drive. This one breaks loose real easy!  Gonna be a little tight in regular cab for three across on the seat, and center section not too comfortable either.  No foot room for center person. Hope we can last the hour and a half ride, hee.  I made an adapter to go from the four wire connector on truck to my 7 pin on trailer. SO, not really legal if they want to get nasty, cause no brakes on trailer. Just hope no need to be stopped and checked. Hard to believe U-haul wouldn't have the stock hitches and 7 pin connector like most of the trucks off the line have.

Some of the goobers at Uhaul dont know any better, the others just dont get paid enough to care!
Hope you have a great time ;)
