Dave

even fords are good for something

Recommended Posts

heres some pictures of a job we are on. Kuna had the water tank built in the access point of the well so we had to set up a long ways from the well and lean back. The front of the truck was getting light so we had to add some weight.

Question, Why not the front end of the Ford? Unless you had some stuff in the bed the front would normally be heavier, wouldn't it?

no hooks on the front is right otherwise the extra weight would be nice it wasnt lifting the pickup much we took up the chain slack with the outriggers thats why the springs are unloaded but the rig was starting to get light and a little shaky. a little extra weight never hurts, in this situation anyway. the bed had a couple thousand pounds of tools in it to.

that ford is an amazing pickup my brothers had it loaded down with a tandem dually trailer 6600lbs with a 17000lbs forklift ,a pallet a bentonite 3000 lbs, and a 800lbs welder on it. he couldnt hit fifty with it on the interstate thankfully the trailer brakes worked good, but it made it to the job. it doesnt have enough power to break the tranny so it will probably last a long time.
