    oh i guess the new boards just looked way to smooth next to the old ones, I thought maybe they were some of those composite boards.

    Yeah the pics does make it seem like they are different.I didnt even want it painted(hate being the first one to tear it up),but it had some welding that needed to get done and it was down for a few weeks so.Just waiting for my rims to get polished then it will be back on the road.

    Yeah I think they fell off the side and tracked down the middle with a dozer or something like that.He had to replace most of the crossmembers.

    I'm surprised we did not hear of it on the news from coming apart on the freeway.

    I have seen them break on the road before, and it is not pretty.

    Not sure if it broke completely on the road but it came in chained together and welded to the deck.There have been a few that came in cracked in the same area.My guess is they dont block up the back when they load.:beatsme
