I don't think it is a tow truck at all. It is too high for a 5er and I don't see a receiver on the back.

Clutch,

I ruled the 5er out in my original post..., but if someone handed me the keys and said; "It's all yours", there is no doubt in my mind that I could find a custom truck builder that would fabricate me a nice heavy duty receiver for that bad-boy!

I also immediately saw it was too high for a fiver (unless it was a custom built one to match the truck), not to mention that silly spoiler would be in the way. But putting a receiver on it would be a piece of cake.

Well it would be great at hauling firewood or crabs or towing pot trailers.

The rear spoiler is, indeed, to hold firewood in the box. I'm sure .....

I suppose some landlubber pot trailers haul this,




But my pot trailer hauls these. With that tractor I could get a bigger pot trailer!

Crabman you sure know how to load a trailer. Are the ends a little higher than the center?
