    The front tires almost being off the ground don't really have to do with the truck more with the trailer. That is caused from tounge weight. Trailers are supposed to be loaded so all the weight is over the axels so the trailer carrys the weight and the truck is just pulling.
    I have a Ford f-350 and agree the rear sqats easy but it has a great ride and even though it squats I have dropped close to 3 tons in the back and carried it easily.

    I bet its not as bad as seeing a toyota seqoua pull a bobcat 863 skid, down the highway. That was funny.

    That is my wife, I don't think she knew I was taking a picture. Glad to hear people love Fords. And no, my MPG didn't change much, just goes to show you what that v10 is built for, not driving empty thats for sure.

    We did a load like that 3 years ago stopped in parking lot in a ice storm trailer slid down the hill truck was stuck truck jack knifed. Still have dent under tail light to remind me of that trip. After checking supplier out no more trips for plants that far. I can sell the semi loads verses driving and make more money. They like trees in Carmel Ind.. We had the 65, and a 80, and a 90Tree spades there and people were stopping and asking us about selling them trees. We moved 1200 trees for the guy used to own dura homes. I would contact him about his subdivisions. Also looking for Blue spruce from up there. If you know of some please call me (816) 739-8733 Dave P.S. try to mow his personal house 178 acres criss crossed every time.
