Weight Police should just ignore this thread

Good Evening folks.

I know most of us try to do whatever we we can to avoid harming our trucks. Occasionally some may haul a load that exceeds the ratings "to get a job done". However, I saw this thread on FullsizeChevy.com - Chevy Trucks where guys were bragging about the excessive loads they have "successfully" pulled/hauled.

Please don't drive thru my neck of the 'burbs if you plan to copy any of these photos:

BIG Dumb Loads
