My haul trucks/trailers

Recommended Posts

First truck/trailer is a '91 D-250 w/'17 Load Trail 14k, 7'x16'x2'. Second truck is '01 2500 w/'12 Big Tex 14k, 7'x14'x2'. I do a lot of dump trailer hauls, anything that will fit and dump, including logs. The '91 is only used for lighter loads on good roads, the '01 is used for heavy loads and bad roads. It is rare for the '01 to not have a trailer on it for the past 8 years.

Current haul trucks/trailers. 


The '01 is towing a '20 PJ 22k, 7'x16'x3', the '91 is towing a '18 Lamar 16k, 7'x16'x3.


I don't need the 22k rating for weight, but I need it for durability off highway. Some of the remote roads are horrible, I will go anyway, Lol. It has a 10" I-beam frame w/10k Dexter torsion axles. The Lamar has 8" I-beam frame w/8k spring axles. The torsion is the only way to go, night and day between the two trailers. The PJ has 7 gauge floor and sides, the Lamar has 7 gauge floor with 10 gauge sides. The PJ is heavy, about 7400 lbs, the Lamar is 6500. The '01 2500/PJ dump combo is 15,280 tare weight, then I haul 6 ton so I am licensed for 26k, sometimes that is not enough....

Im curious what you run for tires on the trucks?


They are both Hercules Terra Trac AT2's, 10 ply. The D-250 has oem size 235/85x16 and '01 285/75x16. I will only get about 25k miles on the '01, that's normal for me.


The Lamar has 215/75x17.5 (4800 lbs), 16 ply, the PJ has 235/75x17.5, 18 ply (6005 lbs)
