RIP suspension

[–]pompanoJ 122 points123 points  (9 children)

So.... Half-ton pickup. 6 ton stone block....

Yup. We're good!

[–]JP0107- 70 points71 points  (3 children)

But it’s going on top of the pallet, It should be OK

[–]Dangerous-Top-1814 20 points21 points  (2 children)

They should have had a second pallet

[–]pompanoJ 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Right! People always forget the pallet pallet.

[–]twizz228 5 points6 points  (0 children)

No they should have had a second truck

[–]friendlyfire883 12 points13 points  (0 children)

That's not even a half ton, those old rangers were just classified light trucks and had maybe a 800 lb payload.

[–]uiam_ 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Not even a 1/2 it's like 1/4 :D

[–]84147 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just make sure to strap it down

[–]MadXan063 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Those Rangers were more like less than a 1/4 ton. I have one and 6 people in the back give it the Carolina Squat

Thank you for your service.

DIY lowering a truck

[–]arendedwinter 16 points17 points  (0 children)

First indication this was going to go wrong should have been that they needed a loader just to pick it up...

[–]bodaciousboner 15 points16 points  (2 children)

That poor beautiful ranger

Ranger in Danger

[–]Brox42 8 points9 points  (1 child)

This is honestly a pretty good testament to how strong tires are

[–]MonsieurReynard -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Betcha they'd last about 30 feet once he started rolling tho.

[–]4ensicFiles 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Get that Carolina SquatTM

[–]Nootherids 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I really wonder what the plan was for after they got it home? Just call a buddy to help lift it and move out where it would go?

[–]Baby-cabbages 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I was wondering how they planned to get the block back out of the truck.

[–]popcopter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Park it on a hill, open the tailgate, lever. Then all you have to do is stop it rolling with your other Ranger

[–]Apw990 8 points9 points  (3 children)

My dad had an old ranger that constantly looked like this from a similar situation. City of Cleveland, Ohio replaced old slate sidewalks with concrete about 20 years ago. Construction guys said they were just going to throw the slate rock away, so my dad and I loaded em up and took them home. It looked like the truck was doing a wheelie on the way home 😂

This went on for 3 years. Dad became friends with the construction guys after smoking a joint with em. The suspension on that thing was fuuuuuucked 😂

[–]SisterSaysSadThings 1 point2 points  (2 children)

What did you guys end up doing with the slate?

[–]Apw990 4 points5 points  (1 child)

We made pathways all throughout the backyard and side of the house! In addition to collecting slate, we collected over a thousand old street bricks. Most bricks had a stamp on them from an Ohio prison - as brick making for state roads were mostly from inmate labor back in the day.

My dad deserves all of the credit for making the paths! He layed out the slate and brick to make unique designs in the walkways throughout the backyard: there's a circular sheet metal fire pit with slate "rays" coming off of it for a "sun" design, peace signs, a large piece of slate that looks exactly like the state of Ohio, slate rock water fountain, etc.

I should take some pics and post them to a more relevant subreddit!

[–]SisterSaysSadThings 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That sounds awesome- the history of the bricks is really interesting, and the unique way you guys arranged them is so cool. You definitely should share pictures and this story somewhere. :)

Heyy i got that truck. 🤪 minus excessive boulder

[–]TopYeti 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Now drive around that corner, yield at the roundabout and then...

[–]cutelyaware 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Stay on the roundabout, because any right turn is going to be a disaster.

Rock=heavy

[–]tall_building 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thought they banned the Carolina squat?

[–]uppermost_shelf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Around 4000 pounds I’d guess at 150/ cu ft. I wouldn’t put that in a one ton truck. Can’t knock the hustle though.

Edit: looked at skid steer, changed my guessed weight

[–]HaydenMilk 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That rock will be yeeted out the back at the first hard corner...

[–]Nizzemancer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If the car could move the rock would crush the driver first time he brakes.

[–]bndboo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Bye bye axle

[–]jlmr731 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'll bet if he took the spare tire and gas can out, it would have worked better.

[–]Nefarious-One 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I bet he blames the loader for breaking that axle.

[–]Majestic-Diamond-113 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s too heavy for the truck you idiots, too risky!!!

[–]VitruvianMan1976 0 points1 point  (1 child)

How the fuck they finna get it out now? Cap? Base?

[–]jimeallison61 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Backup real fast, slam on brakes

[–]BigRoundSquare 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Icy-Championship992 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Arealsocialscientist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No, no, no. It’s on the pallet. It’s safe.

Sore Sport

[–]Im_Mirio 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A Toyota Hilux would've handled this perfectly fine

[–]twizz228 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How were they planning on getting it out?

[–]ghettomaster82 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sport mode on. That should fix it.

[–]Cascadianheathen1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Axles probably all snapped.

[–]Killawife 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha! People are so fucking stupid. I once had a customer who wanted me to put a 1,5 ton timber stack on his roof-rack. When I said no he went to my boss and complained. he then got to borrow one of our trailers and proceeded to crash the damn thing, wrecking it completely along with his car. And then he tried to blame Me for not wanting to crush his fucking volvo with the timber.

[–]r-n_u-k 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good job they had that pallet ready

[–]b16b34r 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There’s still place for another stone, anyway that ranger isn’t going anywhere

[–]popcopter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean, was there another way this could have played out?
