    took this past winter, i think late feb/early march. trailer is 3/4 loaded with green oak, rear axle is against the bumpstops, enogh weight was transfered off the front axle that under hard braking the front wheels would lock and slide. i wonder if i punched the gas in low range if i could have lifted the front tires off the ground. didnt damage a thing, only moved the load across town, wouldnt have wanted to go any further than what i did.

    As long as the ranger can manage the limits it is okay. But if you load weight more than that the capacity of of your ranger. Maybe it will give up. :(
