So guys whats your opinions on Bridge Trucks?
We just got this one with just over 12k miles on it. It's running 10 14x20 tires, it's a monster.
You're new here, welcome aboard. I guess if you have a bridge truck you wouldn't need a ship so welcome aboard might be better put.......Welcome Abridge!

I'm a big fan of big trucks. Here's a little help for those who are working on getting pictures up on SS.

Red River Parts & Equipment in Texarkana area has many of those for parts so you can get an unmolested bed for it. And bumperettes etc.

Brief interruption, I just did my first transaction with Red River Parts via eBay. Seem like decent folks, what's your opinion?

To the original poster, that girl has hips. I love it.

Red River Parts & Equipment is a great outfit, similar in size to Memphis and Southeastern. Huge inventory in multiple warehouses.

Some collectors here in Washington got some and then sold them after realizing they would need overwidth permits to drive them, but I remember someone on this forum that said in Florida you don't need the permits if the truck is for personal use (non-commercial).

Bridge trucks look like they are overflowing with testosterone. If I had one I would be very tempted to find an M113 armored body and a quad-.50 and recreate those monster gun trucks from Vietnam.
