    Yes. If you load it real heavy on the nose it rides a lot better. I guess keeps the springs loaded.

    That will definitely give you a beating.

    Try pulling a spring ride flatbed with 30K lbs taking up the two middle quarters. I guarantee you’ll feel like this... :laughing-guffaw:

    I originally got it in Jan of 2008 to run some 10 mile round trip shuttles when I first started. Bought a 96 48 ft roll up door and went to work. Then eventually I’m driving it across town. Furthest I went was a 300 mi round trip to ft Wayne and back. Honestly though, I really enjoyed it and gave me a lot of appreciation for the good ol days. Got a lot of comments on the cb. I haven’t driven it in several years now, put it on grain hauling duty with my Dad. I love the truck though and hope to always have it. After all, it got me started!
