I was mostly teasing; I know no experienced operator would intentionally leave the extension out that far when towing unless the clearance was needed.

 

That's one thing I've noticed on those particular units, if you let debris get in the extension housing, it spells doom for the hoses and man it ain't fun taking apart to repair.  None of them are, but it seems the auto-grip is a bit more susceptible to damage there.  Previous job had one in the fleet and several lots we store at are gravel.  That was the one truck that kept catching rocks and eating hoses.  With several different people driving the truck, couldn't seem to keep everyone trained on avoiding it.
