17 sq of shingles. Short bed. 6 inches short of shutting the tailgate.

Lady pulled out in front of me I swerved. I picked up 900 pounds of shingles on a 90 degree day in my work clothes.

This one is not mine. My friend Paul got this trailer with 2 5K lb Torflex axles from E-bay for about $300, but it had impound paper work and was illegal (no lights, fenders or brakes) - so he couldn't tow it home... At least not on it's own wheels. This was just a couple days ago.

He claims it didn't move at all.

I remember some pics of a Duramax that was pulling 3 trucks on a triple axle that had hit a patch of black ice and wreaked. Maybe someone has the pics saved.

Yup, its a chop... not mine either. Apparently the guy backed up under it, snapped the pict, and photoshop'd out trailer legs it was sitting on. But its had a few people second guessing.

that dodge is an obvious chop. you'd think having half the weight of that dozer on its rear end would make it sag just a little?

I was thinking airbags for a second... big ones.

But then I realized the tires would have had to of had 1,000psi or something in them to not be flat.

THAT is the scary part. Not the weight of the trailer/truck combo.

hard to see I know but that's a forlift trying to load a f-700 dumptruck from probably the 70s. Onto a gooseneck with a 7.3 ford non turbo to tow it. It was during the Chili Challenge. The truck weighed enough to pull the rear of the fork lift off the ground. It was pretty funny. There was also a guy with a come a long pulling the truck up the trailer. It was a site to behold.
