its not that I like trailers with out brakes but its all I had and I proved a point that I didn't have to kiss some ones back side to get equipment  moved  the best part was it was my cousins skidder   :)  also the ford dealer said it had a 15klb towing capacity so had to find out    would like to find a goose neck trailer but I'm to cheap to spend that kind of money   I was always told when braking  in a new truck is drive it like you stole it      as far as d o t they would have ran out of ink before they was done with me  :-X ;D

Youd have run out of money before they ran out of ink, trust me.

Yep they do have a bit too much ink.

Well, glad it got moved.  My truck is an old Hino and a dog and a half.  Top speed about 60, but in low gear it will take 15k lbs right up a mountain...just slow slow slow.

First thing I ever restored from a salvage yard so I'm happy about it.  Wish I had a small dump truck though, much more useful.  Freightliner M2 would be nice size'd for me, cummins engine and a dump bed with decent towing. 

Hopefully your cousin bought you a cold one for the skidder move.

$200 for a semi and lowboy to move it isn't out of line, but you got it taken care of👍
Too many irons in the fire

it was a roll back and total miles from him leaving his shop and back would have been 22 miles  i wouldn't have said much if it was 50 or more miles but i spend thousands of dollars at his shop every year on repairs  and tires  thats what pithed me off more than anything  i know how much it costs to have a truck on the road and don't expect them to do it for nothing but a little brake would have been nice  :)
