    If that were to happen for real, there would be so much bad news going down the road. Everyone would die. Everyone, everywhere, would die.

    I notice the bungee's too, but they are holding the sign on. Seems like someone has too much time on there hands....Actually now that I think about it, it looks like the sh!t spreaders around here, monster truck tires all the way around so they don't sink...

    we've got a towing company just south of here that has an old tow truck out front posed in a similar fashion. concrete footers behind the tires, and another hooked to the end of the winch cable. its been like that for at least 22 years.

    If you look at the shadowing under the truck it looks like there is something under the front axle holding it up. Can't be the trailer weight as the 5th wheel is slightly in front of the rear axle. To lift it it would have to be behind it.

    I may be wrong but the 5th wheel is still in front of the rear axle which would be the pivot point for the leverage needed to pickup the front end. meaning if the weight isn't behind that pivot point it won't go up.


    Not arguing just my perspective. Is there something I may not be taking into account???:dunno:

    um that's a good point, but after looking at the picture again it kinda looks like it might be somewhat behind the rear wheels. I'm sure it's staged since the person took the picture while driving by it.

    It looks like there are only a couple of lug nuts holding it on too, or the rear for that matter.
