    He should just make a single wheel trailer to haul it around and it can act as the wheel.

    Yeah, he has some blocks under there, but they are done the same way as the ORD add-a-leafs, with the center pin thru the block and bolted together with the leaf packs.

    It must be a problem on your side.

    I can view the pics just fine.

    Lets see if others can view them or not.
