Depending on the vehicle, it is not badif you get an aftermarket kit, disconnect one line from factory cooler, install adaptor, install a couple of hoses, put cooler in front of radiator with supplied plastic ties, refill any lost fluid....
might have forgot something, but you get the jist....

Sweet ride. How well does that V8 tow? Assuming it's the V8 by the width of the rear tires and the tailpipes.

Unfortunately BMW only rates the 4.8is it at 5000lbs just like the other models. I'm not sure why...I think the thing could move my house. It tows my X-9 like it isn't even back there.

My older Blazer really had a time with my boat. It was dangerous..top speed on the highway puling the boat was maybe 7o with a tailwind. I don't know about you guys but no one drives 70 down here. Now I can go any speed I want.

The only downside is that the boat weighs close to the weight of the SUV. Sometimes on a slippery ramp, the boat will drag the thing into the water until the boat starts floating. The first few times it really freaked me out. Now it's just fun for when I have passengers.

Here's our "TOY TOW R" towing our former toy. I even made a removable mud flap setup for it.

Sweeet. How do you like your X-10. Looks like you've got the lightbar as well.
