I personally could never imagine driving this thing around. I was looking for a work truck on ebay and came across this.

I would bet my last $50 that this morphidite truck is too heavy on the front axle before anyone sits in the cab, and you put 9 guys in it and you'll be WAY over.

Just wondering how you figure:confused: You see crew cab diesels with 1000LBS plows all the time. There are also trucks used on the railroad with thoes track wheels. I have heard that they weigh about 2000LBS. They probably stiffen the front springs, but the axle is still the same. I have even seen lifted F350's in "Diesel Power" flying through the air. They didnt break the axles. Remember, these trucks are built to work. Just my 2 cents

can you imagine trying to get that thing in and turned around in some residential areas? My F-350 turns like a bus so I can't imagine what it would be like adding that much more length!

They probably stiffen the front springs, but the axle is still the same. I have even seen lifted F350's in "Diesel Power" flying through the air. They didnt break the axles. Remember, these trucks are built to work. Just my 2 cents

I figure this based on my experience doing aircraft weight and balance calculations on F250 and F350 crew cab diesel 4x4 pickups. With just a fiberglass canopy and a few tools in the back and a winch installed on the front, these trucks weigh about 5200 pounds of the front axle. Now, this is with NO ONE in the cab. Weight placed in the cab puts around 60% on the front and 40% in the rear. The front GAWR on an F250 diesel is 5200 pounds, so with just a winch on the front the truck is at it's maximum front axle weight with no one in the cab.

With the crew cab extended to 9 passenger capacity, that truck will be even heavier on the front, and with the heavy diesel engine will be likely over it's maximum front axle rating without anyone sitting in it. With the cab full of guys it will be way over.

Now, I will concur that these trucks are really stout and will handle extreme overloads. But if the truck is overloaded before anyone sits in it that can be a real problem.

You guys may think I made a goofy comment, but I try to make my comments based on actual experience and knowledge, unlike many on this forum who like to just make stuff up.
