To be sure, if Hoss hasn't done it, there has been or will be someone to give it a try.

I have a 6" thick, roughly 4' by 2' slab of steel, approx 1klbs? I found in the middle of the desert. (dont ask) and to actually add weight I though of cutting small sections to fill in the "C" of the frame, but never thought of cement........hmmmmm, what time does home depot open?

I am sure I could get that in his truck..LOL
I put an 1100 pound tire in the bed of my truck. It wasn't pretty but it was done. The toughest part is getting it high enough up on the tailgate without it snapping off to lift it in.

Scotty's bed-loading system:

Step A:
Flip the truck over on it's roof.

Step B:
Strap 1,000 lb slab into bed with tie-downs.

Step C: Flip truck back over onto wheels.

He dug a trench next to it. Backed into the trench right up to the steel. Hooked a tow strap up to it. Took off real fast and hit the brake. It slid right in. Should have seen it. I couldn't have done it prettier myself. Oh yeah, should've seen all the camel spiders nesting under there.....

Are you referring to our reputation as sharp, intelligent, goal oriented, hard working folks??

I don't know why everyone seems to think this is a joke. Of ALL people, why does everyone think good ole' Hoss would try to pull the wool over anyone's eyes??
