Looks good man :D nice job , I bet that tilt will be real nice




Have u checked the load rating of your tires ???

Make sure they can handle the weight if u have added a bunch of metal ECT

it hauls 162 and a 155, about a foot overhang.and i added an extention so i can jackknife it without damaging the truck,tires are rated 1500 so im pretty close with both sleds on

Biggest problem with the small tires is driving on the hiway at speed
They build heat up faster than it can dissipate and boom
Tire flys apart

lookin good.
looks like you might be at or over the width you need 3 lights in the center at the back, as well as reflectors on the sides as those lights don't have them built in. (last thing you need is cvse stopping you haha, although up there you have less to worry about) oh and licence plate light, for mine I just ordered led lights (ebay)that are built into the bolts, easier and cheaper haha

I agree with c-dog, scale your trailer empty and with the sleds on it just to be 100% sure you are within the ratings.

Nice work! Does it stay tilted without someone standing on it? Looks front heavy to stay up. If it doesn't, put a gas shock from a hatch on it, might need 2 but it should overcome the weight difference.

And invest in a couple of superclamps for the skis, so much faster securing the sleds down!

I will say I agree with this statement .....we have basically the same trailer and had a tire come apart on us 2 yrs ago on the coq. from hi speed.....was told not to take the small tires over 100 KMph
