    Looks like triple threat (333” wheelbase). Assuming those are copper fenders. 53’ spread axle behind it?

    I guess that's correct, but that is the most impractical thing I've ever seen in my life.

    I'm sure that I'm more of a person that's all about function rather than whatever you call that, but for me the first time I would have to back into anywhere with that truck as soon as I'm finished I I would either haul it directly to the scrap yard because to me that is junk, or it would immediately be parked with a for sale sign on it and I would hope some cuckoo would take it off my hands so I can just go buy a truck that's good for work.

    You know around here there are places where there are exits that are under construction that have concrete barriers, like concrete barriers that are three feet high on both sides and there's not a lot of room in there. You have to swing as close as you can and hug the outside so your trailer doesn't hit as it swings left and right.

    If you go through there with that combination that trailer is going to be at least halfway up the sides as he turns to the left and then it's going to go halfway up the sides if not get hung up on the barrier as he rolls around to the right. Or he'll just destroy his wheels and tires and maybe his trailer too.

    That's cool if you want to sit there and look at it and drive it to a show.

    Not cool if you want to put it to work.

    Not cool to me anyway.

    It looks to me like the truck is lowered, you know like a lowrider.

    Like this:
