Thanks buddy. Need to hit you up for some wiring advice at some point for the truck. I never was able to figure out what was wrong with the 3 lights on the light hoop.

I have no idea on the weight. And to be honest I still need to register the thing. Hopefully this week I can get a weight on it. But it tows very well as long as I keep the tank in front at least 1/8 full so that I can keep some weight on the tongue.

On that, you could move the axle back.

It is at a stand still for some personal stuff for him. He is picking up an obnoxious amount of OT at work.

I would definitely suggest it. I talked to a couple manufactures and they all do the 60/40 rule. 60% of your cargo space should be forward of the axle.

This is how I do my trailers. Even though they are made from truck frames and beds. Same concept

I went through and just grabbed the most eye-catching ones. I took so many and so fast, there are a bunch of sequences that if I scroll fast enough in iPhoto, it looks like a movie.

I'll stop in at Staples tomorrow and pick up some CDs to burn the pictures to. I still need to do the same for Kyle. Or maybe I'll figure out DropBox.

You weren't there to supervise so we did some very unsafe things. By sheer fortune, nobody took one in the ocular cavity.
