What are you planning on hauling with that or is it just going to be for show?

David, Do you have any idea of what the real world capacity of these are? I talked to a guy, and he had the pictures to prove it, that said he's hauled 100 tons without problems. I know the military rates them at 70 tons, but they figure ratings very conservative, and are based on going over terrain that nobody would even think of attempting in the real world. I can permit it in TN at 280,000 lb, which would equal out to around 200,000 lbs payload.

What size pin is the 5th wheel

 

A 2 inch pin is good for over a 100 tons on road train or low loader

 

Some blokes use a 3 inch pin but they arent as common

I've sold a lot of trucks with 90mm kingpin fifth wheels (versus 50mm).

 I would run 100 ton all day, you will never stress that trailer like they were in combat, those trailers were run hard and fast and still held up.
