Starting another Project

Recommended Posts

Howdy Quickthrotl,

Looking at your photos, when completed how much clearance will there between the top of your tires and the nearest underside part of the bed?  Do you plan to cut a radius in the outside iron to provide tire clearance for removal and installation?  Looks good, thanks for any info you can share.

With the truck aired down there is 1" of clearance between the tires and the bed, fully aired up the tires will come out

Howdy Quickthrotl,

OK, just wondering as I am in the process of building-having a bed built and am very concerned about clearance between the tires and the deck.

Are all tires the same diameter??  Will you ever need or want chains?  Would there be enough room then?

Personally, I don't figure on using chains or getting into a situation which would call for them....I'd use sox if they were available.

I need new tires for rear of truck and all of the trailer tires.  Trailers are dated 2012.

Your design looks very similar to what I am planing. Why did you go with tube? What thickness will the deck be? I will be starting my build when the snow goes, many be in July!! Please keep posting pictures If you don't mind some copying.

The plate behind my “hitch” is heavy enough to hold up the trailer with nary a dint and just a scratch in the paint. Axe me how I know...

Hope you don't plan on hauling a 10k trailer on that ball hitch. That 3 point doesn't look strong enough??
