I'm not a truck builder myself, but I thought you guys might enjoy this. This one-of-a-kind rig was recently built to transport a 340 ton boulder over 100 miles from a quarry east of Los Angeles to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, where it will become part of Michael Heizer's "Leviated Mass".

You can read more about it here: http://www.lacma.org.../levitated-mass

We went out and saw it on the final leg of its journey last week.

Impressive C500. And that's one big trailer for one big rock!
