I doint want to poop on your parade, but that lil dodge of yours should be considered a road hazard if you read deep enough in the tow/weight police manuals



you might just be better off selling it and get a class 8 truck to get groceries




we have been very careful as of late driving our dually, we have been so cocnerned with the weight police, that is both my wife and i are in the truck, we only run a 1/4 tank of fuel and no cargo so i can safely go to the store.

good thing they didnt see us at 24040 lbs last oct


















thanks for the laugh this morning

I guess my 1/2 ton truck and the camper at 3600 lbs is not a good idea? Ha ha.

I understand safety and don't want joe blow causing an accident because he is overloaded but I have to agree with you guys. There are too many "experts" who chime in with their idea of the perfect setup.

Radio, it's not moving the radio flyer, it's STOPPING the thing for cryin' out loud. If these people could have seen the crap my dad and I moved from one hay field to another it would have caused some coronaries. I remember pulling a baler, rake, tether, and hay wagon with a ford currier(mazda) all in a row down thru what is now sub divisions in Apopka. Or putting 250 square bales on a 20 foot trailer, and not even knowing they made trailers with brakes( I'm sure my dad knew). I think most truck manufacturers have down graded their trucks to limit their liability, and to sell larger trucks.
