I think you should get one of those doors from an airplane with a big inflateable slide for emergencies. I like the truck tho, that's cool.

you better watch every over pass height posting. we have seen tow trucks towing straight trucks backwards. after the box hits overpass it's not pretty.

true i will be watching all of them,but in WA and i believe 90% of the west coast 14 feet is the law and any thing i hit below that i am not responsible for,but it will cause damage to me.
