OC, you're way off on that. I didn't pay anywhere near 50k for my new 1-ton Diesel.

Regardless, it's still more than repairing a rear end or tranny.

If you don't want to know that's fine with me.
Just don't post that you've never been to the scale and say you are under
your load specs in the same sentence!

Around here, there are scales at many of the same truck stops I stop
at for fuel.
Getting weighed is easy, cheap and can be a real education!

Manufacturers scared of lawsuits, or maybe they think European drivers are much better?
Obviously, trailers are lighter when towed in the left lane. Lol.

I was looking at a new Dodge 2500 diesel Laramie Longhorn here in Nova Scotia last week with a window sticker price north of $83,000. That is $20K more than I paid for my first house.
