yepp, even with a unibody truck, weighin in at just shy of 3 tons, still can't get the back to hook up...especially in wet conditions...then its just 4wd time
Unibody truck? I'm pretty sure it'* got a full frame....
I think he'* referring to his Avalanche which is a full frame (it'* based off the Suburban)

I hope you're talking about a semi. Ain't no pickup in the world that will scale 80,000lbs. And if it was a semi, the cab was probably suspended.
Of course my truck was a semi, yes the cab had air bags but so did my rear axles and that truck(2000 KENWORTH T2000) road damm near as good as Cindys car. My old International just had the cab on air and that pos road like a truck. Got me thinking about the first truck i learned to drive in, 1949 Peterbilt with a 5 speed and a 4 speed brownie, now THAT ROAD LIKE A TRUCK. :(

The International was the last truck that was mine, the KW was a truck i drove on weekends for a friend. I also put in 18 years with C/F before they went bellyup. :(

Rear air bags should be stock on those trucks.
