DS if they were haulin ass down your road that would explain why it came unhooked!  bounce

My double axle flat bed has substandard safty chains.  Chicken shit welded on, maybe 3/16 chain w/crappy S hook.  They're too short and I've streched one of the hook out.  Guess I need to move that up towards the top of my to-do list.

I was talking to DS the other night about trailer balls.  nono My trailer has 5200 lb axles, 2-5/16" ball hitch.  Try to find a ball with a GVW of 10k.  95% are rated at 6k and I found 1 that was 7k.  bs1 bs1 bs1

I knew someone would go there.  ;D

So a WD hitch would allow a 10k trailer to be pulled by a 6k ball?  Legally?  I'm ok with my setup, as I'm only about 7k loaded, but saw a triple axle toyhauler with a GVW of 14k, 2-1/2x ball limit.  Got me to thinking.  A Dangerous thing.   rofl

But I will have a new build thread (rebuild) in next couple weeks.  Been kinda slow here, must be frost.

I think I posted about something on this site http://www.airsafehitches.com/receiver_hitches.html.  All these hitch's don't mean diddly because you still stick them into a 2 inch receiver.  That's going to make some jack wad think he can buy a 2500/30000 lb hitch and make his half ton truck tow a 30000 lb trailer.
