But how is that pole secured to the truck? I do not see any tie downs. Just asking? Jon
They tend to blend in with the pole. I've seen similar pictures posted here of loaded log trucks, because you really cant see the tie downs in a picture.

OR-
Maybe it was St Patrick's day, and his lucky leprachaun was riding along as copilot. :D

Cool hitch on that Texas truck. They must have bought every washer, nylock nut, and reflector from the local hardware store.
I wonder if he actually uses that hitch or just an I dare you to rear end me. That is a radiator crusher.

I'm guessing it's a statement piece. Everything in that photo looks new. Would have been cheaper to buy the right sized hitch. True redneck Engineering would have been random rusty junk making that up.

Could be the washers add enough distance so they can drop the tailgate when the trailer is hitched.

There were straps on the pole, but it was bouncing around so I got past quickly.

That sort of thing happens when you put 15,000 pounds of lumber on a 7,000 pound trailer.

It probably worked the first 4 times that they did it though.
