    Me too.
    I always put a outrigger block under each to spread the load to at least 2 crossmembers, I think that spreading the weight over more length and taking the bounce out of the tires (leaving lots of weight on them) can't hurt.

    That WAS an awesome tarp job, that’s from a few years ago (my old truck). The tarp they replaced that one with was made about a foot too long and flapped like crazy. Rumor has it that tarp started to come apart on the last trip.

    I had to post this picture to show another member. Apparently you can’t upload images directly to a conversation, but you can link to them.

    Another week another ladle. This on is going to Tuscaloosa and is smaller than the others but one wouldn't know by looking at the trailer. 20210413_131837~2.jpg

    And it's that time of year when truck stop parking lots smell worse than a hog pen.

    Wait, so this was all the sudden a problem because he was 42 miles past a line, and it would have been A-okay if he wasn't?
