    specs:
    m105 trailer (heavy duty steel and 9x11 x20s) $400

    you can't touch a pop up trailer for that much and it won't be nearly as heavy duty as this setup. Backcountry offroading trips here I come!

    I won't be pulling it with my truggy. I'll be using my 1987 f350. I am toying with the idea of using the trailer bed as a bed on my f350 (thus eliminating the need for the trailer). Even as it sits the trailer is still tongue light. My understanding is that these tow really well. I will see if that is true though.:D

    I pull mine behind my Suburban, but even empty I can't go over 60 or so. It is extremely heavy and braking is something that has to be planned in advance. Your 350 will probably do better.

    As for height, mine still points down even though I am on 37's with 6" of lift. And I flipped the pintle.

    You may even recognize a poster or two over there. One of whom sold his K5 & bought a 4rnnr.
