I have an '03 Ram 1500 pickup with the 4.7 engine and auto transmission. I
picked up a pallet of concrete stones that I use to build a retaining wall
yesterday. I thought that they would weigh about 1500 pounds and I wasn't
too worried about damaging the truck.
When they lowered the pallet onto the truck, it really dropped and I know
that it was more than 1500 lb.. I drove home, about 8 miles at speeds lower
than 30 mph and didn't see any adverse effects.
My question to the experts. Did I do any damage to the truck with this
overload that I might be able to observe by looking underneath?
