Its weighs a a lot, the brackets have the FoMoCo emblem on them and they are like 1/4 inch thick.
291 looks doable. Spring Field would add about 25 miles to a already 272 mile "commute" to work.
Issue might be timing.
I usually leave Maine Tuesday"s in the early AM and pass thru Hartford on I84 to I91 south anywhere btw 8am to as late as 9am. The later means the more I am behind schedule.
Return is Thursday nite, again pass thru Hartford anywhere from 8pm to 10pm. I do this trip the 1st week over ever month, more often if clients do a project. Tomorrow I have a IEP for son at his school, will not know until afternoon of I am going down on Weds or not.
Tomorrow I will weight it and measure it.
