    I have a friend that has a truck towing outfit in L.Mills, Wis.( Topel's Towing, call them if you need help in the Madison area) and I did a few ride alongs. Incredible job. It wasn't for me, but towing outfits have a lot of experience in those matters. I believe, they would straighten out the unit, and roll it back on it's wheels. One thing for sure, it won't be cheap.

    That's for sure, especially when it costs upwards of $600 per truck just to get them to show up.

    Wow,strong kingpin and fifth wheel to go with it!
    Seeing this reminds me of those old 70s-80s Volvo commercials where they would intentionally smash their cars to show their durability in an accident. I guess they they could use this to advertise the durability of their heavy trucks.

    That's a great photo capture! Good job. Won't see that very often in a lifetime of trucking.
