Are we taking bets on how long that Chrysler tranny will last? 

OR

Are we betting to see how long until that load pushes them through a red light/stop sign and they  T-bone someone....

But we won't take bets on whether the DOT will get them for overloading a vehicle.  They are too busy chasing those who are two pounds over the stated limit on a truck that can handle it.  :wallbanging:

Here in Misery [Missouri] we can put car OR "truck" license plates on vans.  If that were in MO and had passenger car plates on it the DOT couldn't touch them. 

 

Which may be why they did that.  They may have - say a half-ton pickup with 6000 pound plates and this way they are "legal".   :(

I lifted the rear end of the F250 with a TD340 IH dozer once. Backing it off and forgot to put the jack stands under the back end of the trailer.

As for this video, I was really worried for the safety of the guy running the winch. Also anyone who lives anywhere near these folk or the scrap yard.

Alan, I watched someone do something similar with a rubber track loader.  Except in his case the truck didn't want to sit still once the rear wheels left the ground!  The guy felt the trailer rolling underneath of him and froze.  If he had kept moving and got the loader centered on the trailer his truck's front end would be a heck of a lot straighter today...

There is so much wrong there that it's hard to watch. At least that portion of the move came off without injuries.

When cables snap they are like a whip. I saw a guy get a leg broke one day when one broke on him. After that they built a cage where he stood to operate it. In this case it may have taken his head off if it snapped under tension.

Those are always the people that buy stuff from me lol. I had a couple guys come from NY (yes I'm in KS) to pickup a Ford Thunder Bird. They were driving a really small chevy blazer of a sort, with a lightweight car trailer. The old T-bird made the trailer and their blazer bottom out, but they took off back to NY. :(

I wonder if they ever made it back???

If either cable broke those guys may have been beheaded!  Scary as hell watching that!  

 

Guess you gotta clean out the gene poll somehow??
