I saw this photo and just had to share it with the group. This is what happens when you put massive amounts of weight cantilevered off the back of a vehicle. My guess is that bike rack with 2 heavy Ebikes hanging off the back, is the straw that broke the camel's back.

The lesson I get from this is that payload capacity is based on within the vehicle. Not hanging way out beyond the bumpers! ;)

I'm guessing a bump or dip in the road did the damage (in conjunction with all the weight).

According to the story associated with that pic the weight on that slide in was 7800 and the payload rating on that ram is 5850
Math is hard

Shall we start a pool on how long it will take for a Cybertruck to be destroyed by an idiot’s shenanigans? I’m sure all the naysayers will jump on the story and tout their predictions of the exoskeleton’s futility.

Silly human. Cybertruck can't be destroyed.

Correct. Normally if you put all that weight off the back. The front end of the vehicle would start getting light. But what we have here is about 4,300lbs on the front axle alone. So you're right, the weight out on both ends forced the middle to buckle! :oops:

A few months ago, I skimmed an article:

A man in Au moved house and crammed the stuff in his RV, and moved with the family in the car.

An accident and fatalities followed. He went to jail.


This guy with this 3500 has a lot to say. He should instead thank his lucky stars.
