So last Saturday it was 48 degrees. Today it's 90.
Guess what one I prefer at work? Luckily, it's cooling back down Monday. This is about the only hot weather we've had, so I ain't complaining. Hate the heat.

They aren't a full size truck so I doubt they are rated half ton. It's just basically a Jeep JL Wrangler that is stretched. I think it's rated to tow around 8500 pounds. I can't remember what the payload is. I will have to check.
