I finally found a flat bed I liked. got it put on and loaded it up. it was little cold today so I went to get some firewood. probably a little under gvwr and I should have put in front of the axle but I made it home ok.

Nice truck, since you have Dayton wheels, it is easy to find tubeless(22.5) rims for it. What is cold in Carolina?

Good looking truck!
The load is deceptive, the rear tires look squatted.
