    certain states may allow you to haul over 80k on their roads

    but you right in thinking the interstates are max 80.

    I am talking legal loads, no overweight permits either.

    Max GVW for truck and super b's are 63500 KG, or 139993 LBS.

    In CO you can go 85000 on secondary roads.

    In WY you can go 85000 any where as long as you can bridge it, and have your base plate registered for 85000 in WY.

    I wouldn't have the horsepower to pull a 140,000 lb rig. A C-12 has its limitations.

    A live bottom is very heavy, seen many of these out of the ethanol plant. If just hauling grain, hopper would be better. However you can haul more products with live bottom...The weight of it is what really hurts
