    ....but here's pics of when the Freightliner went bye-bye.

    It took some effort, but, Yes, that is an '06 F-350 on the back there....never thought one would fit. Dude drove down here from Tulsa, and drove the FRT back.

    Perhaps, well most likely, I'm dumb but is the Freightliner s'posed to be a "tow truck"?

    Here's one more.... This is "Bud", the guy who bought it. He's one awesome old dude - I'm glad the Freightliner went to such a great home.

    If I recall correctly, the 'shaft was in four sections, with two supports....300" wheelbase.

    Thanks for the words, Sandawg.... I have no idea what they were both trying to say.

    That Freightliner had to be a little heavy on the assend. Nice sleeper though. You in the expediting business?
