So does your Ford F250 SD have a flatbed to haul the golf cart? "5 million lbs" - those are some springs!

No, the ol cart fits right in the back pretty well! lol Our old truck was a 2002 Chevy HD quad with a Duramax/Allison by the way.....damn good truck as well. I love my 250, but I must say I miss that Allison Trans. The 5 million pound towing capacity may not apply to all trucks...see your dealer for details! lol

Just a note here and you can take this for what it's worth. Make sure you read your frame warranty before you do anything to the frame at all. Lippert (at least with our V-Lite's frame warranty) makes it quite clear you will void the frame warranty if you weld or drill any holes in the frame.

Good point indeed! lol I know by welding on any vehicles frame you can take out some of the temper of the steel itself, drilling in a structurally important area is a bad thing as well. I'd recommend a welder who has this in mind and has structural steel experience as well, to ovoid "cooking" the temper from the steel. Warranty or not, the skid plates themselves are on to prevent damage the warranty isn't going to cover anyway though..... Kind of a damned if you do even more damned if you don't scenario! lol Good point to know what the warrany impact is though.
