They Stole My Truck and My Life.... I'm Counting on Truckers to Help Tell My Story

Discussion in 'Ask An Owner Operator' started by terrilatour, Oct 15, 2010.

  1. I'm thinking the whole cab raises up off of the frame, but it stays level. Isn't that what a scissor lift would do? Maybe I'm wrong. Tilted my fair share of cabovers, but I haven't ever seen one that long either.

    You can probably take a lot of gear with you in a big 'ol cab like that. Can you Imagine tilting it forward and then having 352 pounds of stuff you forgot to secure piled on the windshields? :biggrin_2559::biggrin_2559:

    as long as it just piles on the windshield --no problem
    but when it comes thru the windshield ,it might be a problem

    hmm i would really hate to see how that works pertaining to steering and elctrical
     
  6. Be Pretty handy out on the road, though. In a traffic jam, you could just raise it up and get a bird's eye view of what the hold up is.

    If your engine got too hot, you could raise it about a foot to let in some more airflow.

    If traveling into Hunt's Point, Nogales, Laredo, or East St.Louis, you could raise up the cab while in town to keep thieves and hijackers from climbing up on the side.

    And lastly, you could park at the Flyin' Pilot and raise it to get above the urine smell in the parking lot. I'm not 100% sure it would stop the lizards from knocking, though. They can climb on the side of ANYTHING to wake a guy up!

    Many COE front windows have been replaced thanks to forgetting a heavy item that was about to go flying forward. :biggrin_25525:

    Wow everything about the guy screams dirt ball. Not to mention the choice of truck, along with the wannabe biker thing he has going on has me questioning his emotional maturity.

    But, love is blind, and I can't say I have never been screwed over in "matters of the heart"

    I really wish you all the best, Terri

    I hope that a valuable lesson from this thread is learned by EVERYBODY that reads here.

    DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT EVER put your house in jeopardy for buying your truck. EVER!
    Probably not for any business venture for that matter.
    Its too easy for a business to fail, some times because of mistakes the owner makes,
    some times from uncontrolled circumstances.
     
  10. Terri, I'm sorry to hear about this deal that robbed you of everything. I hear Karma is a #####. Lets hope he finds out! A truck like that can't stay invisible for long, so he has to turn up somewhere, and now the word is out.

    The only real mistake is the one from which you learn nothing.
