Getting out of the lake should be easy. Have a boat driver and a truck driver. When the truck starts pulling have the boat push the truck for a running start. Once the boat prop is near coming out of the water just turn the key off on the boat. The truck should be able to make it fine up the ramp in 2x4.
Reminds me of being the boat guy while my cousin was pulling his Supra out with his Ranger. Not that much fun.

Sounds like a bigger truck or smaller boat is the answer.

lol I don't think the guys in charge of maintaining the launch ramp would like it either! You could be digging up all kinds of bottom mud and depositing it in a ridge.

But the tundra pulled the 300k lb space shuttle endeavor over a bridge. Therefore theoretically the tundra "should" be plenty of truck for an X45.







Those comercials are such bull chit. I had to suffer through them like 3 times just durring the cowboys vs eagles game.

Better than all the campaign hate-commercials, but still brings me close to throwing things at the tv.

i freaking hate that commercial too. its sad that NASA is so desperate for funding they'd let toyota get anywhere close to the shuttle (if that actually happened...)

just a reminder - when your backing down the ramp your trailer brakes arent activated, because your truck is in reverse.
