So a crappy motel, an awesome trailer purchase, and the roughest ride ever in our '86 Chevy Kodiak enclosed ramp truck add up to a ridiculous banzai run from Georgia to Kansas City and back in just 30 hours. We thought we wanted to convert Lincoln Hawk into a toterhome so we set out to find just the right car trailer to hitch the back of our favorite ramp truck. We bought the trailer and by the time we made it back home, the rough ride has given us serious doubts about the future of this CAT 3208 turbo diesel-powered hauler.

Shout out to Heatshield Products who helped us keep our floorboards cool during this road trip- you can find the Stealth Floor Heat Shield we installed in Lincoln Hawk at:

thanks for watching!

Buy ramp truck to avoid having to tow a trailer. Several ramp truck iterations pass. Buy trailer because new ramp truck is now basically an RV. I love this channel. Just as crazy as me.

Well just saw this show and you need to install some load leveling bars on it. You are carrying that trailer hitch heavy that with the long rear-end truck it will tow bad. Try some and you will be surprised by the difference in towing.

72 feet long it's hard to imagine being able to change lanes in congested areas or near cities on the highway even.
Heavy Hauling big Ballin
Tag axle is used for braking when a vehicle is heavy loaded. you can't use the tag axle setup on your truck. you need a single bag on each side... I would say just tune that engine up. My truck has a cat motor in it have two of those Kodiak trucks the same transmission two speed rear it does 65-70 top speed and it Halls dirt has a dump body.. keep the truck Finnegan put an air tanker or 2 on couple airbags. Tweak the motor Slow and Low it's a torque box monster not made to do a hundred miles an hour load the shit out of the trailer and truck I guarantee that transmission will do its job and that two speed rear end...👍💯🔊📽📽

You might be trying to get into your next gear too soon. With a 4 speed like that, the RPM range between gears is like 800-1000 rpms. So you'd have to run it out to like almost 2k and it'll drop into your next gear at like 1000-1200

To float a gear you dont just pull it out of gear and try the next you pull it to neutral rev a little to get the synchros aligned then it will fall into the next year with low force

Way too much overhang on the rear axle to tow a trailer like that behind it. But you've probably already figured that out by now. Not the first person to make that mistake unwittingly and won't be the last.

It may help to know that the top 4 gear-axle combos are 4L-5L-4H-5H. If you're heavily loaded that's the shift sequence you'll want to use.

You have to let off the accelerator as you pull out of gear and roll back on while going into gear, idk if you guys have tried that but when you said “you can’t” it sounds like your just trying to man handle it?

Hills means slow, up and down. Not a bad thing, find the power point and let it roll. Except slow it is easier on the drive train.

I'm thinking the trailer tandems are to far to the rear. That's a lot of weight on the tongue which is a lot of weight off the steer axle. That's why you're getting the kind of reaction in the cab over bumps. Here's an semi-rational solution: relocate the trailer tandems on the trailer center. Install solid rollers on the end of the trailer so the trailer end doesn't get scraped thin. Maybe just get a class 7 single drive axle truck/tractor.

Yank that 3208 out and swap in a 3408 and at least a super 10 Bruce Jenner and you’ll have a much better rig. Those 3208’s are pretty much throw away motors. Edit: swap in a 3406B four and a quarter and a 13 speed and haul whatever you can get in and behind it

if you slide the rear axle back on the truck it will ride smooth your issue is the trailer is hanging on four feet of frame and every bounce whips the hitch up and down like a stretched out slinky

Floating the gears is a term I have never heard, BUT (and I drive semi) rev matching and only using the clutch for first (to get moving), and reverse is NORMAL for me.... Push the mirrors out as far as you can so the trailer is JUST visible in the mirrors (which will give you maximum views of the MORONS passing you on the right, or trying to change lanes UNDER your trailer... Been over Mount eagle (with 74,000 in the box) and I got to the top at about 24 mph, and went down the other side on the jake break at about 40 (in about 10 gear). That one is always lots of fun (and I have been over in to hurricane weather, AND a ice storm LOL)
