This guy from Illinois/Indiana passed me on I-65 near Nashville....I'd hate to pay his fuel bill.

Trucks like that are sooo lame. I have a F350 Diesel/dually. If you have ever been anywhere near some sticky mud in a dually, you'll wonder what the point of that truck is. The mud gets between the two tires and packs it into one solid mud wheel that spins like a mother.Sometimes rocks get in between there too and stuck hard.

It's probably for when the levees break, and you have to drive through 5 feet of water to get out of town.

I always thought that duals in the rear were for excessive tongue weight.

Well they are, the lame part that i was refering to was that it was supposed to be some type of off road truck. My personal truck is used on the road for hauling heavy loads of equipment and towing, like it was designed for.They also add stability with a high load like a camper in the wind.

That was the original idea but most are bought because the owner is compensating for another shortcoming....

Correct, that is pretty standard fair for a bush plane. Lots of them in Alaska.
