I have a question up front. Did it pull like it was really 500lbs, or do you have a dash scale/suspension gauge to see if it was near what they claimed?
What you're describing is nothing unusual to what I heard about in my years on the road. For others not familiar with it, there are some companies that dedicate to doing little or nothing but this kind of hauling. Everything from bombs to blankets to coins. I never got onto one like this, and I'm not sure I've have said yes if one had been offered where I'd worked. Just a lot of hassle. (Although a 'don't stop for ANYTHING' pass would have been kinda neat for the novelty of the meaning. Of course, they mean anything)edit on 3-4-2014 by Wrabbit2000 because: (no reason given)
It was a lifesaver for produce, since everything ran close to gross, then axle balance coming out of California wasn't something to play with (or bridge law).

I more worried about when it looks like war of the worlds!
I didn't mean aliens are digging underground, if that's what you inferred, the USA is.
They have become exceedingly efficient at it!
Matrix plug there, felt right. . .
I live around the Champaign, IL area and lately I've noticed huge convoys of semi trucks ( ten or more ) going down our main streets at night, usually around 8pm - 10pm. It's happened at least once a month that I've seen, since around November of last year, and I've never seen a convoy of trucks so it was suspicious. Do commercial companies like yours do this, or are they military convoys of some sort?
