Great looking project.......

Question on the duals and double duals?
What kind of tire scrubbing/flex/twist are you expecting when turning tight corners or tight backing?

My double axle singles can really twist/scrub when maneuvering in tight situations.

I am interested in seeing the completed rig. From what you have showed so far you are doing a nice job.

X2! I am curious why you chose white. Won't that get dirty looking pretty quickly?

Everyone thinks this thing is huge but it not. The trailer is being set up for travel on unimproved roads as I want to go boondocking in the deserts of the Southwest.

The running gear is rated at 20k but I'll only be running at 80 percent of that.

As for pulling it, maybe this pic will tell the story.... =)

Lot more to come, please be patient

That mud flap pretty much answers the question of what type of engine is being used but the real question is what calls of truck is that Cummins in?

Well the mudflap also has the Dodge/Ram logo on it along side the Cummins.

This is a great idea. I really like how clean the underbelly is.
