a bunch of good friends

went together and built in Southern BC Canada and delivered to N. Idaho a trailer for me as a gift. we had a big BBQ at my place and while it was going on they pulled into the drive and was pulling the trailer , a complete surprise to me [all of them from the Diesel Board I'm a active member of] .. they had a locked thread I could not see it and went behind my back and planned and set it up.

could have pushed me over with a feather and that would be a feat as I'm 6'7" 320 lbs LOL.

trailer is set up for multi use as you can see by the 3500 lb. dual axles, and stake pockets .. the floor is very heavy expanded mesh so the dirt n mud can drop out
it 12'x 8'6" with room at the front for a gear box.it has plenty of ground clearance to get it over bad roads and unimproved areas for those times when after a broke rig or out after wood ect. ect.

they even sent down a spare tire and very heavy duty ratchet strap tie downs with the chain ends on one end and a neat HD step that removes and drops into the stake pocket

yes I have a whole "family" of like minded folks in the diesel world who are into performance diesel .. my old rig is around 570 horse power at the tires. been there for many many years now so it's really OLD SCHOOL technology now lol
That site is called northwest bombers.com [as in better off modified baby]
it's much like this site where everyone pitches in knowledge / ideas and help/labor to help a guy out, or pass on knowledge that we gain along the way of a better way to fix or modify to a better product or experience .. where friendships develop via the net that are as strong as any. How many guys have friends in Canada/USA that will build and deliver several thousand [on edit .. several hundreds ] miles away just cause it's a fun thing to do. I am blessed for sure.

I have a gooseneck trailer that I used to haul to sled pulls empty just to haul the broken rigs home , they might have been a couple states away , oh well let's do it. LOL .. still use it to help stranded rigs n friends in the northwest some of which I have never met personally only on the net.
