We had a shop cleanup day on Saturday and these Critters rolled through and thought they hit the honey hole! Got almost everything in one trip...

The trailer can certainly handle the weight, but I predict that bro dozer won't be around too much longer with that tiedown job. SMH

In 4wd and park it will probably be fine but it sure looks sketchy

So there was someone in the Chevy and another in the Cherokee? Was the Cherokee towing the Chevy with a tow bar or were they actually pushing the Cherokee with the Chevy's bumper?

From looking at the picture I thought they were trying to throw the car away and just left it next to the dumpster and then I read your caption.

I would guess this isn’t over the weight rating of the truck but was surprised that this was a supposed commercial car hauler according to the sign. They are definitely over the weight rating they tagged the truck for. They limited its weight to save money on registration. I'm just surprised anyone would hire someone to move a vehicle that shows up with a tiny box truck.

I transport cars and trucks for a living, I see that crap all day long. I had a guy the other day ask if I could load one up for him since he didn't have ramps. I said sure but if something fails and it goes through the partition in the front that's on him. took me 2 mins and he gave me 50$ the only shitty part was he didn't strap it down, just shut the door and took off

At least the guy in the picture has drings on the floor and straps to keep it from moving foward...

This baby was rocking side to side

I kept waiting for it to flop over

Looks like some of that retarded Diesel Bros stuff. The trailer GVW is fine. But the load is still big... and dumb...


Is it the pic or is the left rear tire crazy off camber?

Cool truck. Looks like a hub is broke. Not sure how it is a big dumb load though.

4 chains. 4 Binders. Proper truck and trailer.

Nothing brings me more joy than seeing those road trains piled up in the ditch on the side of IH10.

And not a cop to be found...

Maybe the dumb part was the speed? But that's just me talking because I have to drive 55 and in the right most lanes when towing.

Or being 9.5-10 wide and 15+ tall with no oversized permits or signage all while doing 85mph...

Big and dumb.

Maybe if I were a Commiefornian (or just a normal commie) I'd feel differently but I can't imagine not exceeding 55 on the highway regardless of what you're towing/hauling. It's 20-goddamn-18. If you can't do 70 you shouldn't be on the highway.

It's pretty miserable! It's a big state to cover at only 55 mph at a time. However the roads are so shitty towing anything faster is extra sketchy. It's such a great place, come visit!

Oregon used to be the same but they just upped the limit for trucks to 60 on main highways, still 55 on the smaller ones its an ass ache to get anywhere and make good time in these 2 states

Yeah, the majority of fair weather accidents happen because traffic isn't doing a consistent speed, so let's make traffic not do a consistent speed for safety!
