    Wouldn't this be an "under load"?

    The fact this is on top, does it fall in the {CAT-egory} of overload.

    I don’t think the box lift has enough power to launch it.

    I wish the car wasn't there so we could see how the tires were squatted.

    G..G..G..Granville.........!! Fetch your cloth.
    I’m sure it doesn’t but all that’s necessary is to back up against the nearest convenient highwall and drive it off.

    A D10 in a 789 is a bit better fit..... that 773 is a bit undersized for the job. Last time I saw it done was in Zambia in the mid-90s. I may have some photos somewhere.

    If they dropped the ripper tooth over the front lip of the box, would that qualify as a tie-down?:D

    Heck that's not uncommon-the driver that complained his windshield washers didn't work {post # 27 Stupid is
    as Stupid does} under Shop Talk. Was in Montana 2 months ago Crossed a scale with two tires just like that.
    Slept in a rest area 30 miles back, brakes froze----never checked. RED LIGHT.

    Wish I could have gotten a picture tandem axle dump on a 14k gooseneck behind a f250 around Columbia mo sitting on the side of the road with two blown tires and possibly a bad axle on the passenger side was on the side of the road when I went to Kansas City and was still there when I came back through

    None of those parts go together. Probably a broke dump truck they wrangled up there to make a poop sandwich.

    Very best dragging story was years ago. Motor home towing a small car, he of course couldn't see the car in his mirrors. I can't remember what state, dry summer conditions in mountainous terrain. He's driving down a steep highway. Tractor trailer behind him is frantically trying to get his attention. He has dragged a wheel off the little car, and sparks are flying along the roadside starting multiple fires.
    I saw an interview with this A hole. The State was suing him trying to recover a portion of the 7 million dollars damage the fires had done. The interviewer asked: "Were you not aware the trucker behind you was trying to get your attention, blowing his air horn & flashing his lights?"
    He replied: "The first thing you learn when you buy a motor home is ignore traffic behind you."

    Tread depth was sufficient measured across 60% of the tire. Easy to check the rims for cracking.

    But yeah, pull the wheels and chain up the axle.
