Justin have you ever tried getting a full size truck on a u-haul trailer? Let alone a truck with full width axles and 35+ tires? It would be a nightmare.

Deck over is tempting but it's too tall.

Not to mention the u-haul trailers are not rated for much weight.

And rick that's what I thought when I saw the deck over. It would be really tall with the truck on it

That's the hope. The guy said it's either 10k or 12k gross. He couldn't remember so I'm hoping to find something stamped on the axles. The trailer is 2700lbs according to the pink so 7300 capacity or so.

They are 6 lug. Everything I have been reading is that most 6 lug axles are 5200lb. I'll try to find a tag or something tomorrow

To my knowledge they don't make a 6k trailer axle, only 5200 and 7000lb. The 7ks have 8 lugs.
