For all those with stacks

Learned an important lesson today, if you ever have to get towed somewhere, and the tow truck grabs your back wheels, cover the stacks.......If you dont the air being forced down the stacks spins your turbo, seen it on a truck today, the tow company just bought him a new turbo because its now seized.

Good point whenever we haul turboed tractors, we always shove a rag or wad of paper towels down the muffler or pipe so it stops the air flow.
