    Yeah I'm a tent camper but those trailers are cool. Mine will be more of like what you see most guys have with a RTT on the top.

    Hey, Jerry. In all seriousness. Pulling all the weight on your truck alone, and now a trailer on 37s also, you're not worried about power at all. I know you've got that thing SC'd and geared. I'm just curious of your thoughts on this specific topic. I've seen your feedback that it's still got plenty left after the transformation of the truck. Just curious where you're sitting with this, personally.

    I tow my 17" bass boat over donner summit with no issues so I dont think ill have any power problems towing this trailer. The rolling mass will be more with the tires but it shouldn't be a problem.

    Yeah, just curious if you were at all taking that into account as an important factor or if you pretty much had no worries at all haha thanks.

    Looking forward to photos of the progress.

    I wish I lived closer to you. There are no metal workers here that can build the bumpers I have in my mind . . . ha

    Started the frame today just need the 2.5x2.5x.250 tube for the receiver and i can finish weld the frame. I also started the trailing arms well design that is. I have one of the tubes bent for them. I wont be welding the trailing arms to the hub until I get my new welding table as I want them to stay square so clamping them to a fixture will be better.

    Update on this BAMF? You said you're building this on the weekends? Lmk if it's cool to come and hang out. I've been wasting my weekends away doing nothing, plus I've got a few small projects in mind I wanted to run pass you. Real simple kinds of things. :D
