    It sure surprised me! Originally I thought it would be between 4-500... WAY off and WAY low.....

    Trailer came in at....












    780 pounds!!!

    That surprised the hell out of me! Just throwing on a lighter end RTT would put it at 900! Now im thinking about gutting the rear diff and removing more weight (rear brakes etc) if possible lol, especially since the tow capacity is only rated at 1,500..

    That is quite a lot heavier than I would have initially expected as well.

    I suppose the mistake is in thinking that it really was stripped down as a trailer. And not just the cut off rear end of a truck. The rear axle of a truck is a hefty mass of iron and machinery. And the frame and suspension is still that of a truck, and not that of a trailer.






    no shrug smiley here. so i'll hijack the one from my own forum. maybe it could be added here.

    Unfortunately our store is down right now lol.

    We used to keep product in stock but found that having multiples of every size shirt on hand, was expensive up front and not every size gets ordered. So we switched to a "build by order" site. Shirt can be made in any size, color, or design we have avail right when its ordered.

    Its all just a side thing for fun between myself and 3 other friends. Paypal got mad at us due to not having a tax ID with them. So, there's the next step for us ha.
