    Looks like the stout frame saved this wobbly box. 
    Nice Work.

    BlackAutoload got a reaction from nousdef in Tire Chains- Its that time of year again   
    I have used chains twice in 2 days.  The first for deep snow and ice up in the mountains and the second time for clay like mud.  
    Chains have a very good ROI. 
    I need to order another set of dual rails for the wrecker.... the problem with mountain roads with deep ruts are the inner duals ride high in the rut leaving the outer chained up dual in the air basically doing nothing.
    Your price is kind of skinny for a 4x4 chained up performing a task to me.

    My vote is to buy a trailer instead.  Convincing an insurance agent that a commercial size truck is for personal use is almost impossible. 
    The 10-15k for a crapper rollback can buy a sweet trailer and have money to spare as long as your already have a decent size pickup.

    BlackAutoload got a reaction from Jgrant514 in ford 550 with a jd 1210d   
    More than a f#50, you need wheelbase.
    Longest truck wins for towing.
    Crew Cab or Extended cab, with a tunnel box 450/550 4500/5500 matches well with the hpl.
    I love my hpl / 1210d combo.

    I love towing sprinters with a light duty. No-biggie to me.  Just don't drive like an a$$ and collect the $$.

    Can't blame you! Far easier and less stressful ways to make a buck than the heavy segment of the industry.

    BlackAutoload got a reaction from luigi in What kind of problems can arise during travel?   
    1) You need to answer your phone when the company calls
    2) Leave your car in park, or in gear
    3) Hand the keys to the operator and let them know what the primary reason for the tow is
    3) Get into the tow truck and let the operator do their job
    4) Do not get out of the tow truck and attempt to "help" the operator
    5) Have your payment method ready at the drop off point

    My take.
    Guy in front is crazy ! Jackknife truck a bit to get that flat off the white line more.
    Guy filming is nuts too, but not as bad though.  You cannot expect every car to get over when you are at "the scene" .  You need to be way further back as a pre warning, especially on a corner.

    Fun one.
    That style lift works good on cars for brake jobs... full size truck maxed out in height... he was asking for this to happen.
    I have the same lift and is currently sitting in my scrap pile. HA.
