    Seems to be a pretty good gig. I make a lot more than the average OTR dude that's gettin screwed by his company.

    I dont know what that load of pipe weighs, But it looks like that one ton dodge is just a tad-bit overloaded.NO way I would take that down the road. Looks like an accident waiting to happen.

    I would be very concerned about the pin weight rating on the Dodge.

    It looks like the rear is down considerably.

    I think they're good for up to 15 or 17.5k pounds. Big long light loads.

    Need to slide the 5th wheel up, the steer looks a little light.

    The combined towing weight rating on a Dodge dually is around 24,000 lbs. The truck is 8,000 lbs without fuel tanks and tool boxes.

    How'd he even get that Cents symbol lol? I don't have one on my keyboard.

    I think our mods have very dirty minds. If you do drop and hooks, some day's you're a dropper. Tow trucks also hook. Quite benign really.

    LOL, I just looked for one on my keyboard and it's not there either. How do you sign in if it's not on the keyboard. I think ther is a CTRL+ something for it.

    When I was in college I remember them talking about that. You are right. I just don't remember how to do it. The same goes for the temperature degree symbol.
