    Not so much a 'Law' as a Desired location by DOT or state controlled, all the trucks even the Tractor Trailer sets are cab controlled here. Only hard mount exterior Dump is suspension dump to unload and release tailgate in MO or IL AFAIK.

    Today was a Day Off, had to make a Eye Doc visit, will NOT EVER disregard my eye health with one Iffy and only other one in Good Order. All is Unchanged but did Dilate them, BIG as Dinner Plates and always makes Brightness a BAD Word!! Rain setting in Wednesday/Thursday, will see where the boss desires my efforts next.

    It used to be in the Oversize/overweight reg book in the section under "lift axles". It used to read, "outside of cab" or something, but the new book doesn't mention it. I was always concerned about getting dinged for it, but was willing to take the chance vs. getting hung up with drives off the ground and no cab control.

    Its not in the new book.

    Lift switch can be mounted in dash, no rules against that. If your on black ice-lift the axle. At slow speeds it may not turn even at highway speed.
