Default Overloaded?
So I went to lowe's just for some potting soil and mulch for my new Texas Sable. Well.... the wifey suggested we get abunch of rocks. So, a pallet of 140 rocks later at 20 pounds a piece and that's what it did to the truck. It's a good thing the truck has a Cnotch in the frame already. The picture doesn't show it well but the 22" tires were squashed big time. I was worried about the tires bad. "Why didn't you go get your trailer? why didn't you get a buddy with his 3/4 ton truck to come up there?" you may ask. Well, there would be this thing called pride get in the way, and now that it's loaded, I was too embarrassed to get them to unload it not realizing how heavy these things were.

Looks like you made the back end even lower. Rock/stone is deceiving on what it weighs. I have made trailers squat with loads of stone that nowhere near filled the trailer volume wise.

I'll bet that was a slow and careful ride home....haha
