I've got that same driveway issue (solved only by drag wheels, 2" trailer lift, and a 5.5" drop hitch used only in the driveway).

Sounds like a big project for the trailer, but a good one. You don't want to leave them outside without a boat on them as they'll rust pretty quick.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I don't get the Titan/Armada thing. FWIW the JD Power scores on it suck and that's why Nissan has the fix-it crew down at their brand new plant figuring things out. The numbers are impressive and there are some nice features but I didn't think it had anything on the American trucks in the interior. Still cheap plastic with flimsy-looking hinges and generally unimpressive fit-and-finish. Styling is subjective so if you like it, great, but I think the Armada is goofy looking and the Infiniti version is just plain offensive. Toyota trucks are still toyish but they are Toyotas...

Soon I'm going to be unloading my POS 98 Grand Cherokee for an 05 Envoy. After that experience I will never own a Chrysler out of warranty. I'm afraid of Ford transmissions, their general lack of powertrain oomph, and uncomfortable flat seats so that leaves the General and I'm fine with that...

That is a cool big 4 dr ford. It must have been an omen. Today as I was drooling over, I mean checking out a 4 door Tundra in a parking lot, I just about had myself convinced that I needed one, when, around the corner comes this beautiful new 4 door F 350 4X4 with the diesel just a hummin. SWEEEET 350..

Work truck! You've said it.
Who really needs a F350 for private use?
Mark's job doesn't require a F 350...LOL

I don't have a F350, I have 2 F150s, still best work trucks ever built. And pulling a 20ft. boat is work ! Well maybe not for a Ford.
