I say wait and get what you want! People get a little crazy with the price when the sun comes out but when the leaves start to fall prices will go down.

:stupid: I don't think I've posted in this thread much (at all?) but I agree. People are crazy but if you get desperate they know you'll pay that money. Just takes time, that's how I've found most of my CL buys, most recently Rich find the ZF5 and the CJ2a running and registered for less than $2k before that.

You'll need a trailer like this for your driveway and wheel base

Unless you have a dually with a goose neck I highly recommend staying away from deck overs lol.

Yeah you can get them with regular fenders though. Deck overs handle pretty awful because of center of gravity, then you put a tall truck on it and it becomes a real workout. My trailer was $1000 less with the same width. 84 inches between wheel wells. My blazer on 40s with less backspace then most people run and a wider than usual dana 60 fits with a few inches to spare. 81 inches I think I just measured. 13.5 wide tires.

The bronco has some room to spare down the driveway. But it will be very interesting trying to manuever a trailer down the driveway. Frankly it might be impossible. Peter doesn't know it yet but I might be borrowing his trailer to see if I can get it down the driveway :mrgreen:

That's fine with me. If I see your junk on my trailer I'll stay motivated to work on mine. :Mr green:

Maneuvering it into the driveway with all the parked cars will be fun
