Pretty cool truck outside Lowes

This may be nothing new for some of y'all. And truthfully I couldn't tell if this was a redneck engineered job or factory.

But none the less I thought I'd share.

The rear most tires were about and inch or two off the ground and rear axle was just a straight tube with no diff. Like a trailer axle. The springs on the extra axle were beef!

That's awesome looks alright to me. The tag axle makes it.

Would be cooler if it was a live axle, but still neat.

I sure can't find anything via google. I'm not up on my old Chevrolet's. Can anyone tell what year the cab is?

If it is homebrew, someone did a good job.

good setup for hauling landscape blocks. Most trucks overload quick with a pallet of block.

Redneck tag axle. When the truck squats with enough weight in it, the rear tires hit the ground and you now have an extra set of brakes (if they're even plumbed)

I've seen an 80s Dodge 1 ton set up that way here that hauls big flat rocks from somewhere south of me through Breckenridge and to I 70. Drives slow as hell too, getting stuck behind it on a 2 lane with few passing lanes sucked.
