question for you dually owners

Just wondered how many of you that own duallys have personally or heard of anyone that has had theirs on 2 wheels after hitting something???
Just kind of curious in general what kind of experiences you've had with keeping them on the road when you aren't pulling anything!!!

[QUOTE=notduallyfantoday;4439770]Just wondered how many of you that own duallys have heard of anyone that has had theirs on 2 (3) wheels after hitting something???
Just wondered if this was something that was pretty rare and if high speed would be an issue if this were to occur???!!!

The whole one side of the truck was off the ground and even spun around upon impact of another vehicle. I don't own a dually but I have proof this happened and am just curious if this is pretty unusual. I think it probably is but just wanted to get some feedback!!!

For something like that to happen, I do not think it would matter if it was a dually or srw.
I've never hit anything so I do not know for sure. Suspensions are very similar between dually an srw, so this is another reason why I do not think it matters if its a dually or not.

Maybe this could happen if you ran over a tree-hugging troll at high speed.

Upon impact from another vehicle....When a troll runs a red light anything can happen, know of an incident where a smaller 2 door car hit a 4 axle LP fuel delivery truck, destroyed the truck (not the tank), truck actually left the ground.
