Actually I sold the 63 C10 as well as 3 motors, 2 trannys and 3 sets of axles this summer. I took 6100lbs of scrap to the yard as well. I really want to get my chevelle running again (11 years in the shed...) and get back on the Datsun. My 50 Gmc is down to wiring the lights and getting the window regulators back in....

Though I did buy a super clean Chrysler Conquest roller and installed a dyno in my shop...Lol

I've hauled a lot of 2 ton trucks on my 18 footer with 7000# axles. Biggest problem for me is getting enough tongue weight if the truck has a heavy bed on the back.

thats different! I tried counting the lugs, 5 lug is usually 3500 lb axle and 6 is usually 4500, 8 is usually 5200. a steel deck trailer can be over 2500, so a 7000lb (2 3500lb axle) trailer is usually less than 4.5k capacity. grain trucks with beds are 5500+. I saw a guy the other day with a 1 ton ford 4x4 diesel on a car hauler, hung off both ends and the tires were crying.

I hauled two trucks cut in half on a steel deck 18' and was nervous the whole way home. I dont know what the axle rating is, they are 5 lug but huge axles, the farmer I got the trailer from said he hauled a 10k tractor from new york to kansas.

Oh I hear you! (and have been known to load a little heavy...) My last trip across the scales at the scrap yard was 17,800lbs truck, trailer and load (3100 lbs #1 in truck bead alone)
