Thanks it was not an option but should have been. You can't see the spare from the side top or bottom. It was all made from scratch except for a trailer fender used up side down.

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

Very good job man. I figured it had to be something you'd done yourself but I didn't know for sure.

I'm a stepside man so my spare tire is pretty out of the way to begin with but if I had a fleetside, I'd do what you did. Does your inverted fender have a drain hole?

*Just this week I gave a guy a ride to work, he'd had a blowout but didn't have a spare. He said "if you hadn't of stopped and picked me up, I'd have lost my job because it was my first shift with that company."

Carry those spares, keep them pumped up.

Flippers, keyboard peckers and peckerheads. Did I get that right.

There is a drain hole and 3/16 round bar on the bottom for water and debris to wash out.

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

Nice to see it in use. Nice to see you doing windmills.

Makes me want to show a job picture. Not sure if this has been shown. Last summer on a sundeck job. Just tools & 'stuff' in the bed needed for the job

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

Is towing hauling? I took a load of job waste to the center today. The old 133" wheelbase didn't know the load was back there. Notice the payload was only a little over a ton.

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

The best part was that big block idled through that photo op and unloading the trailer with the air conditioner running. I've never had a BB that would do that.

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

I don't get it. If that's a weigh-back at 9,640 then that trailer must be made of lead.
My small-block 133" GMC weights 5,300 with all tools, sides Etc. What makes your rig so heavy? Or am I missing something here? -BA

That occurred to me when I weighed out, but then I forgot about it. I will go back tomorrow if I get a chance and weigh the truck.

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

You always wonder what buttons they push with these electronic scales, both paying at landfill and receiving at scrap yard. I will pull on and it sets at a number, then someone does something and all the numbers flail around to a new number. You just have to trust what they're doing. What would that trailer weight?

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

I have a 26 foot travel trailer that weighs about 5800 pounds. There must be a lot of steel in that trailer! Do/can you haul farm implements on it?

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

We haul mini-ex's, skid steers, tractors etc.. If you look one over, it's not hard to see the weight. The subframe is a load in itself, and add an all steel body and there you go.

We have three of these trailers, And we have power struggles over who gets them all the time.They are one handy piece of equipment. On small jobs they haul the machine, retrieve materials, haul off the waste, load the machine and leave.

Hauling waste is much less expensive than a dumpster. We have run the numbers, and one of these pays for itself in less then 18 months. On small jobs sooner because of the delivery and pickup on the dumpster.

Down side is most of our trucks require a CDL to pull these.

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

What is a CDL? Here, I'd call it a California Driver's License, but that is no indication of quality, based on what I see driving around here.
