I only found some small bales and three of them big roller bales. After the small bales got hauled and stacked I had to get them big bales before they got ripped off. My Chevy Silverado could haul two bales in the trailer and one in the bed. I just had to be carefull so it didn't rolle up and hit the cab. That load didn't bother my old style three quarter ton a bit.
    I'm talking about hauling horses...

    You can haul with a Jeep Liberty? Dang, if I was a jeep girl I'd be in luck! As for the Dodges, hows the gas mileage on them? I can only be having one car right now, and I don't want to be shelling out 13-15 mpg to drive to work if I have another option.
    V8 is an engine term, right? Is that the amount of cylinders, such as the six I have in my Ranger? Taking a guess here so I don't start assuming things.
    Well Shina, on a 2011 Dodge 1500 with the Hemi it is 20 mpg better than out V6 Jeep. That only gets 15 mpg, makes no sense to me.
