The DIFFERENCE was that I did not even know I was overloading the truck. It could have been a disaster considering the brakes!

: I had my own load of "watermelons" in my Suburban ('94 K1500).
: I went down to the roofing warehouse and bought a half-pallet of "light" cement roof tiles. (You know, the lightweight ones that only weigh 10-12 pounds each.) A half pallet is somewhere over 200 tiles. I had all the tiles loaded across the whole 4x8 floor of the truck. Then, I drove cautiously home - staying off the freeway and watching the braking distances to each intersection.
: Made it home all right too.
