post from yesterday

so once a week i do a load of appliances, the truck is typically only under load for about 30 mins total, and the load on the trailer tends to be about 1000 to 1300 lbs (not including trailer) so i am typically a little bit under or a little bit over the 7000lb limit total, well a situation came up and i dont have the amount of time i normally have to do this load, unloading and stuff so i loaded it up today to unload tmw. well turns out we had a VERY heavy fridge (the silver one) and a surprisingly heavy bbq so my truck is sagging a little bit and it has to sit like that for 10 hours so...here is my redneck solution

oh and trailer jack is broken





i estimate this load to be around 1500 lbs lol ignore padlocks on the chains, its just a simple small deterrent from trailer theft, the hole is too small for our locks

----------

ill post the weight tmw, my 3.0 pulls this with no issues btw, just the suspension cant keep up
