I heard if you strap a load down it doesn't move.

I saw a ram 1500 on the shoulder of the highway the other day. His trailer popped off his hitch and crushed his entire box.

What a weak truck bed.

Carrying a "heavy square object" loose in the bed of a pickup truck is never a good idea. But, at least the "heavy square object" did not get out and terrorize the neighboring community. Two new concepts learned from this thread: Ratchet straps and Tie downs.... sheesh!

i'm not trying to make a negative but i would haul big block junk yard engines in my 87 ranger and without straps every turn you could feel the engine roll and hit the bed. the worst that happened was the tailgat was hard to open due to the stretched out bed panels.

Or, maybe just a really strong trailer? Just playin' devil's advocate.

I guess it would be important to know exactly what the "heavy square object" was. I mean, if it was something like a Liberty safe, we're talking 800+ lbs in many cases. "Heavy" is somewhat subjective, but when we're talking about a load in the back of a pick up, I expect "heavy" to be at least in the Liberty safe range. Also, in this case anyway, size matters. If the "heavy" object is close to the same size as the width of the bed, it will not do as much damage when swerving as an object that is just as "heavy," but is smaller and has some room to pick up some speed before it slams into the side of the bed. Finally, we don't know how fast the truck was moving when it swerved. That would also factor into the amount of damage that would be expected. Many variables to consider that are unknown in this case. At any rate, that sure is an ugly picture. I'd be sick if that were my truck.

A front end collision would have been interesting.
