  1. When towing anything, slow down and take wide turns. Ask me how I know 😉

  2. Where do I get that bumper sticker shown at the end!?!?!

  3. Once I was helping a friend move from Austin to San Jose and he rented a 22 foot U-Haul with his car towed as well. We got stuck in a gas station somewhere in CA trying to maneuver the truck and just couldn't get it right. Then someone saw our struggle and offer to help. We accepted and he ended our 15 minute ordeal. I agree there are mostly good and helpful people in this world. Don't be shy.

  4. Next time for a road show colleague don’t choose an old lesbian lady to tell us about cars.

  5. Mr. Cooley is in a class of his own

  6. Cooley and Emme together? Omg 1000% like!

  7. Also, lifting your huge truck and swapping in huge rims and low profile tires does not make it more capable

  8. Jill, i think you need to tell people like that what they did wrong… that was probably the third time he has gone speeding up that hill, crashed and said… "maybe i was going to slow"

  9. Or you could figure out the spring rate of your truck's leaf (or coil) springs, then measure how many inches the payload causes deflection and multiply the inches by the spring rate like any sensible human…

  10. I'm going to tell my wife "honey, Cooley and Emme said I should get a Rapture because I might actually do some high speed off-roading someday".

  11. I remember Emma from another YouTube Car series back in the late 2000s. It good to see her talking about vehicles again.

  12. Great info. Thank you. 👍

  13. In my country, vehicle's (cars with max weight of 8000 pounds) when towing, there is a max speed of 55 mph. Vehicle's (with a weight of over 8000 pounds) towing or no towing, always a max speed of 50 mph. Simple🤐

  14. Holy crap, average female 170lbs!!!

  15. What is Emme racing? She mentioned she has a racing trailer.

  16. Nice. Getting the public ready for all the F-150 Lightning trucks they're going to be buying next year 🙂

  17. For some years now, Toyota was the only one following that J2807 standard.

  18. She said “You drive in that right hand lane”. If I wasn’t married, I’d be proposing lol.

  19. Right hand lane, You hear that slower and towing drivers?

  20. I started watching Cooley in 2005, and he hasn't aged on bit.

  21. It's also worth noting the shorter the trailer the harder it is to reverse.
