Bingo! Their website says the 14' truck can handle just over 6,000lbs. As long as you don't have too far to drive that would certainly be cheaper than $195.

Were your tires rubbing the fenders?

The few times I have overloaded my f-150 the rear springs took it in stride. And it made the steering feel like a mid 60's Cadillac.

But how long would it take me to load 64 60lbs boxes in and out of that truck? Might be worth the money.

if it was me I'd have them deliver, could sit back and sip on a cool beverage with a little umbrella in it while watching them unload. a lot cheaper than trips to the chiropractor

I think I paid about $150 for delivery and carry-in (bilevel so up stairs even) of 1600 square feet of flooring last year from HD.

If you're concerned w/ the physical repercussions then just pay the mother load to have them carry it in the house.
