    saw this at a stone supplier 2 weeks ago... 1600lbs in that booger. the quarry made them load it by hand (liability and the fact a pallet wouldn't fit) as i walked by I told to of the crew (3 in there) to make sure one of them rides on the front to help even the load out.

    Dayum that is a load. Had about that much in my F150 and it didnt like it too much. I can only imagine how that Tacoma handled. Can we say "Dude I ain't got no steerin!"

    It doesn't look that bad atleast the front tires are still on the ground :laugh:

    Some 1/4 ton pickups you see the back bumper is making sparks on the pavement the front tires are barely touching :dizzy:

    That looks to be a Frontier to me. We have a couple for our maint trucks and I'd hate to haul half that weight.
