    Has Ok. changed the weight limit on triples? if I remember right did it not used to be 90,000 lbs? How in the heck is FDX gonna make this work? I know I don't understand such things because I'm just a driver. The truck knows more, dispatch knows more, the tablet knows more and of course management knows more.

    From what I just read on the internet, which makes it absolutely true, the gross wt limit for LCVs is indeed 90,000 lbs. Kind of puts it in the why bother category. Unless you just want a way to move empties.

    I believe that is unless you buy permits for more. I'll ask.

    All triples certified tractors in Oklahoma are licensed to 90,000 pounds.

    Gutless? I have a 2018 Peterbilt with the new fangled Cummins X15. Road rocket! Lot's of fun to drive.

    They are not doing the triples meet thing in Billings, OK any longer because of several issues. One is the GVW, another is the truck stop in Billings, OK does not want all the dropping and hooking in their lot. The meets will continue to be in the Muskogee yard.
