Bogie (also spelled bogey)
Assembly of two or more axles, usually a pair in tandem.

Spread Axle (Spread Tandem)
Tandem axle assembly spaced further apart than the standard spacing of 54 inches. The U.S. federal bridge formula favors trailer axles with an eight or nine foot spread by allowing higher weight than on tandems wth standard spacing.
"Dry" weight of a truck including all standard equipment, but excluding fuel and coolant.
ABS (Antilock Braking System)
Computer, sensors and solenoid valves which together monitor wheel speed and modulate braking force if wheel lockup is sensed during braking. Helps the driver retain control of the vehicle during heavy braking on slippery roads.
