Hi, you quoted my post but I am not the one that owns the red Camaro, that belongs to @RedRocketZ28.I know this post is >2yrs old but I have an 05 Envoy FWD 4.2L SWB W/ 190,000+ miles on it and I want to pull a 2 axle car trailer w/ an 02 TransAm on it. I was scanning thru this thread and yours piqued my interest b/c its basically the same set up. What have you done to yours to enable it to tow that weight. any tips you might give me? btw,, nice Camaro !! mine's got mostly suspension mods as I take mine Auto-X-ing.
Looks like a telescopic (space) frame
Bow_Tied got it! Antenna tower is one of its intended functions.Antenna tower, or, stadium/stage lighting/sound support beams.
I use Microsoft Paint to open pictures I take on my phone and just save it in the right position. Then I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager to resize and correct brightness/contrast. Mostly because they are free... well the picture manager came with office 2007 which I refuse to replace with newer products since I paid for it long ago and it still works with Win 10.I find the rotation thing on phones interferes with picture orientation. I've had pictures that I took one way shows up the other, even on the phone. In that case, I have to download it and fix it on the computer.
Do our rigs have a load sensing brake proportioning valve? I know my old Pathfinder had that, add weight to the back end and there was a change in bake proportioning. The valve in that truck was on the body and connected to the axle via a spring.A Little bit older here, But I towed a Bobcat Skidsteer, and Trailer, with my Envoy last year. The trailer brakes, I didnt find out till afterward, didnt work. Somehow, I smoked my REAR brakes doing this. I thought this was really weird because the braking bias is not proportioned to the rear..
Any thoughts on this?
I dont know to be honest. I know Ford Taurus has them, but not sure on the GMT.Do our rigs have a load sensing brake proportioning valve?

That's a pretty nifty setup. Are you a ham radio guy? I know some of the emergency comms people love mobile towers on those types of setups.Bow_Tied got it! Antenna tower is one of its intended functions.
It's actually also a pretty clever mechanism for standing up and taking down fully-assembled tower structures up to twice as tall:
It attaches to a solid tower with a hook, then a series of pulleys, and the power of a second vehicle raises or lowers the neighboring tower.
A pretty odd thing, but it fills a niche need.
