    Steering component failure? Like a ball joint came apart?

    Hard brake with the trailer brakes out of adjustment. Trailer started pushing the tractor and the driver stayed on the brakes which made it nigh on impossible to counter steer even if he had the presence of mind to do so.

    Had a Uncle we called Bob. But that wasnt his name.
    How he ended up with Bob is a mystery.

    Head in ###. Way too fast. That's the new 202. Smooth as glass. Speed limit is 65.

    Guarantee when you peel the bark off......head fully inserted in ###.

    It's an old WE trailer. It was destiny.
