    I wish it was mine. lol, my bud towed it to the gas station for me. But I can wish... Thats his trailer too. 18' 8 lug 10k lb axles with brakes on each axle. Built it himself while working at a trailer place. Sooooo overbuilt! He paid something $2k to build it- just materials and his time. The same model trailer sold for $5k+. /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif

    Not too big on a Ford but hey that trailer is sweet. Did you have to drive over the wheel wells or do they fit through them?

    Haha! Yeah, I coulda brought gas to the truck, but I only have a 5 gallon can. I didn't want to make 5-6 trips to the gas station. Besides, Chris looooves to tow stuff. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    That was the scary part. The first time I tried to drive onto it, because I was trying to get one tire on the fender and one on the deck, the back tires spun out causing the back of the truck to walk almost off the side of the trailer. (4.56 front, 4.10 rear= no 4wd) Ended up with a tire sitting on top of one of the light gaurds. Had to back off and try again. Just barely squeezed the 42's between the fenders- I have fender rash now rather than rock rash.. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif The trailer is as wide as is legal too. If I had functioning 4wd, I would just drove on the fender with one tire, the deck with the other. Fenders are made of 1/8 diamond plate and have good braces. He designed them to be driven on if needed. The trailer is pretty damn bad ass. Everytime I ask to borrow it, to tow something with my truck and his trailer, he just shows up with his truck and trailer anyways...He loves to use his toys. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
