    Default Aw.. its just surface rust!

    Saw this last weekend while in Charleston. The pic is not great but I took it because their trailer hitch was rusted through at least on the back side on each side of the ball. Scary thing is that there was a receiver in and it looked like they might of still be TOWING with it!!

    And a shiny ball hitch at that, and by the looks of things reverse is not a good gear for the SUV either.

    looking at the rust and living in Charleston for most of my life that was a northern vehicle, they don't look like that from coastal rust. The guy driving it was a bit "urban" if you understand what im saying.

    I see at least one broken hitch a year. That one is pretty obvious that its a lost cause. Good thing is one can get a Curt hitch with thr best paint in the industry for about $100 delivered.

    Nice! Common sense isnt too common anymore! We put an old toyota on the lift the other day (by the frame mind you) and the truck folded in half before the wheels even left the ground, guy DROVE IT HOME! Ridiculous!

    Lou,

    Just out of curiosity, what could he be liable for? He took a picture, in a public place on a public road with his camera.
