So.. what's a "semi-floater" which I just saw referred to on Another Forum[tm]?

Yeah, dealer-speak isn't what I mean (I've seen 'em call it that with as little as the wiring and a bumper hitch!) To me it means all that plus a transmission cooler, a good frame hitch, overload springs, and enough truck to handle it.

Hey everyone! Thanks so much for all the info and input.

I ended up trading in my Cherokee for a Jeep Wrangler 4x4. I love it!!! I got a great warranty on it. I've actually always wanted a Wrangler so I'm happy. I think itíll do, right? (Please agree with me because I really love it!)

Iím not planning on towing a large trailer. Itís rated at 3,500. Iím okay with that. My last trailer was a pop-up tent trailer that weighed 1,500 (minus full water tank).

Any way - I appreciate all of the advice and I really look forward to getting it real dirty in the Montana wilderness

Yeah, but it's not a Ford!

Should do you pretty well, I'd think, despite this shocking deficiency. I see by your choice of trailer that you actually go camping, rather than bringing a condo to the wilderness!

All right, now go get it dirty -- ain't broke in til you can't see the doors for the mud!
