I immediately noted the mismatched wheels on the TT.

Any way you look at it, the tongue weight on that trailer is easily double the max capacity of any receiver they make for that car. I'd lay money on it they don't have a brake controller installed either...I wouldn't want to be anywhere near it at 50+ mph.

Most left rear looks to be a spare.

Why have I seen a PU towing a FW and then a CJ7 jeep behind the FW?
