    My teammate lives in a subdivision. She didn't tell me this when I dropped her home for her home time. Luckily I was bobtail. She said she's drove with trailer and made it in and out ok. Its really tight and I'm not even sure if it's legal. I'll have a trailer with me when I pick her back up. I'm thinking it's probably not even legal.

    That all depends on what state and/or town.... Where I'm from you can take a semi anywhere you want as long as it doesnt get stuck, or hit anything, or go over a restricted bridge.

    Yank em down.... Unless specifically signed as otherwise, they are supposed to be higher than a Truck. This of course depends yet again on where your located.

    But yes I, seriously, wouldnt intentionally hit low power lines
     
    Bean Jr. Thanks this.
