I wonder if our two trucks will fit on a 26 footer?
Sweet Thanks, either way I know I can get there.

I think Jacob and I tried to measure for his dad's trailer, i don't remember exactly but I *think* it was a 24 footer and we came up a few feet short. So it'll be close.. You have a welder and some skillz just make the trailer a little longer

or make a ramp kinda thing so one of you can park up on the back of the other truck.. doggy style

ya, I guess I have seen it done as well....Just don't look trust worthy to me.

I thought Anrolds truck was going to die with a chevy (which I am sure didn't weight that much) and 7 quads.

If you do any calculations on how much the truck is going to be pulling/stopping, keep in mind that your Rangers have to be a good deal heavier than stock.

I bet you could put one trucks front tires up on the vertical part and squeeze another behind it.
The overall weight is probably no big deal, but it could be a lot of tongue weight with the wheel placement on the trailer.

The only problem with that lies in the reasoning of hauling the rig in the first place. I've thought about it, but what happens when one or both of them break too much to climb that?

Maybe build a ramp up to the neck of the trailer? Long enough to climb in 2wd but not too long to neglect the reason for the ramp. so maybe a few feet shorter than the wheelbase?

the trailer has a 10k or 12k winch mounted on it. drag them up.

im sure we can figure something out. I know someone that has another trailer just not sure how long it is.

FWIW my friend has a 30ft flatbed that we use to tow mine and his Rangers places. They fit but hang off of either end by about 2ft. The trucks are each 17+ feet long bumper to bumper.

And hurry up with this dang thing I want to see it running already... hahahaha.

that doesnt sound too promising Jason. lol

and I would hurry up if the machine shops would, what a joke taking 2.5 - 3 months to get it all done. Hopefully see some more progress soon.

i wanted to get some progress done on the ranger this weekend but my 150 is getting priority since the next time i go down I hope to bring it home.

Mount a 12k winch to the top of the cage on your ranger, that way you can drag his up onto yours haha

I know how you feel with having your truck down for so long. I'm sure it will be worth it when you're finally wheeling that beast!
