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.
