Quite a few over the road tractors when they reach replacement age get sold and either they either stay a tractor unit , BUT many are bought  and the new owners put a dump body on it and either doesn't know or doesn't care that an OTR unit has a lighter chassis and lighter capacity rears (with a highway gear ratio), springs and steer axle. Usually end up twisted, bend  and fatigue (stress) cracked

Wow, that is a serious concern. That is a legit "run away" scenario. Thanks 41chevy and 6368!

Funny how they look like they're built from scraps of other truck brands. Johnny cash must have had a hand in that company
