Hey Gravel Rat, I just got an idea. Get a F450 and put a F350 logo on the side of it. OR get your F350 and trick out the suspension with air bags or more springs. Then you can haul the load with out the BS.

I support the 26,000 lbs restriction. There are way too many people that do not pay attention to it. And I think it is a good idea for some of these idiots (US drivers) to be forced to have more training. Some clowns with extra training and special license are still dumber than some of the rest of us using common sense.

I'am gonna beef a F-350 up with timbrens on the back and the truck will have a subframe under the deck to give the frame some extra ridgidness. I thought about swapping the name badges on a F-350 and F-Superduty but if the DOT askes for the insurance papers I'am screwed. These DOT guys are pretty knowledgeable when it comes to spotting F-Superduties if you miss a scale they will come out and chase you.

Ohwell a guy lives and learns I should have looked into the DOT rules more before I bought the truck if I new all this I would have bought the F-350 4x4 I was looking at originally when I was truck searching a year ago.

Gravel Rat I just found a place that sells the suspension air bags for pick ups. $235 US. Supposedly adds 5K cappacity to your truck and takes rear end sag out. I ordered a set.
