    Get RID of the ###### bulkhead and have a catwalk to get on the front of the load. Your catwalk is wasting fuel mileage and causing a hazard, not to mention theyre as heavy or heavier than a headache rack

    The point is well taken, lets just call jan 6th a mostly peaceful demonstration.

    Slow, i like that you arent afraid to call bs on things publicly while being in the minority view here, but youre falling prey to the same traps you accuse the other side of

    What traps would that be? Jan. 6 was in fact "mostly peaceful". On the other hand, even though it was mostly peaceful, there was still a riot. The trap lies in referring to everyone there as rioters, or in referring to the cause as unjust because there was a riot. Doesn't matter what side uses it; the broad brush always fails the smell test.

    I have a full catwalk. I used the bulkhead to get on the load because it was 8' tall, and I didn't want to get my ladder. My bulkhead is just a thin piece of aluminum, and I store my chains on it. I don't want to put a headache rack on this truck, I want to put one on my next truck.

    There are a lot of terminals in south Dallas. I've been out to those truck stops located there on the south side in the middle of the night countless times. No one has ever bothered me, and I'm a big, dopey looking white boy. Just mind your business is all you need to do. Places aren't as bad as people think.

    Actually, what I’ve noticed, the biggest share of murders are committed by someone that knows the victim in some way.

    We've been importing the third world for over 400 years. How much longer before we become it?
