Towing Extension

I found a great 12" hitch extension at Harbor Freight that lets me tow even with my bumper. It was $12 with a coupon.





I blame Rob and James for making me need new tires & safety harnesses.

Thats a huge lever arm on a pretty weak hitch. I'd divide the tongue weight rating by 4 when using that.

For the naysayers this thing has been used for 2.5 years without a problem.

I expect that there are very few vikings in Queens.

I just looked up a map of Queens and learnt two things, one, I now know why Long Island is called Long Island, and two, you're right for a change, there would be very few Vikings in Queens.


And that hitch extension wouldn't be a problem.

Could be just what I need if I want to use my Polar HD 1500 utility trailer when I have the tracks on in the winter. Definitely going to check it out.
Was at a Harbor Freight store a couple of weeks ago.
Could spend a lot of money in that place! Kid in a candy store!!
