When I read the topic and saw the Expedition I was thinking tow strap and gas pedal

been there, done that.

now, try loading it in the trailer from the engine stand and then removing it again without a hoist. That'* a challenge.

And I agree paul, an engine stand is a very versatile tool. I've got three in the garage, two with S1 L67'* on them. makes moving and working on them much easier.

Nice tow vehicle btw.

The tow vehicle is the green supercharged car with crosslace wheels and a sunroof and leather (with the hitch).
