    Default Whats the biggest load you've hauled or towed?

    The most interesting load I've hauled is probably when I moved my kids wood fort in a 6x8 utility trailer. I found 1 in the neighborhood, that's already pre built 4x4s. I put it in the trailer and lashed it down and drove the few miles back home with it rocking and swaying ib the breeze. I thought she might flip after the first corner, but it was stable and just leaned a lot.

    Well i have hauled in the old wood truck (1980 Chevy Silverado C10 with an I-6 and 4spd) enough wood that the front tires would bounce off the road when driving. Otherwise on actual road worthy trucks i have put 2yds of dirt in the back of my truck last year for the garden. sadly i do not have pictures since well i was busy haha.

    Wow.
    I, too, have had the front tires up, and searching for 'coons in the trees with the headlights. Carpet squares, dirt, wood, gravel, playset (2 loads), whatever that was...

    My '89 Sierra C1500 scsb has always been treated as a one ton dump truck. Of course, when I pulled the rusty box to exchange with a new one, I found that one of the rear spring eyes is a 1/4" from falling right off. I should probably fix that.

    Next, it will be carrying the teen drivers, so I best get it up to snuff.

    Enkeiavalanche, great job with the photoshop!! I'm kidding!
