        Not sure if it's my terrible internet or getting used to the new site.

        Bought a small wedge trailer from 2big bronco, it has 32' of deck, 5200lb axles,it's decentlyish home built. Could be better, but could be a whole lot worse.

        First thing on the list is to convert it to a gooseneck, and probably a bigger jack.

              I haven't figured out the pics myself. Works half the time and I'm never sure if I'm doing it wrong or it's the program acting up

                Well I was hoping to post some more pics but our new fancy internet is blowing balls.

                I tried some local places yesterday and today looking for a goose coupler, came up empty handed. A few places that I didn't make it to yesterday, and went open today might have had it, but oh well, I'll probably just order one, I want a square and most are round anyway.

                I'm also debating on what to do for a Jack. The po put a jack for a wood splitter on it and I'd like something that can lift it loaded. A single ~12k or whatever drop leg seems like the go to. With how unlevel my yard is, I'm really thinking about 2. Buuuuut, I really don't want to spend 1/5th of the purchase price on jacks

                I'm thinking 2 of the smaller ~7k square side handle jacks like these

                They aren't designed to be doubled up, but the crank does go through to the other side. So with a little work, I could connect them together. Probably over thinking as usual, but with a rig that high up, a single jack seems scetchy.

                  This kit isn't terrible, but I don't I'll even be 24k gross ​​​​​​

                  This is kinda what I had in mind, but it's not that much cheaper than the big boy kit

                    The $200 drop leg Jack's at tractor supply would be perfect. Wheres the pic of the 5th wheel hitch on the runner?

                      I thought he was going to tow the 4runner and SxS with the Tracker? I R disappointed now.

                        Up loading is basically not working (my connection, not this site)

                        I wonder if I could put the ball in the middle of roof and do 360s without hitting the trailer like the diesel Beatle video?

                        My buddy said he has a Toyota dolphin dually rolling chassis, maybe I should get it, mount a 5th wheel plate on the frame and have a micro hot shot rig





                        I'm sure a single "big" jack would probably be fine. They're $150 online. But I'm picturing a it loaded with 2 rigs and 1 jack being unstable. I think 2 of those decent small side handle jacks would be plenty of capacity (maybe a little nicer one that what I pictured) and about the same price as 1 big jack.

                          I'd use two jacks. I dont think one would be very stable with a fully loaded trailer on any sort of side angle.

                            In my experience fuck this first jack get this second one. If you don't feel like unloading the trailer before unhooking it from the tow pig then you don't have to.

                              If you had been reading, I'm trying to decide between 2 of the first style or 1 of the 2nd.

                              The Pic I chose was definitely a cheesy one (HF)

                              I was thinking 2 of these, 7k x's2 is more capacity than the single big one.
