Icon6 Ready For My Trip!

tomorrow 7am im leaving and picking up the car dolly from uhaul then hitting the road to new cumberland west virginia...its 759 miles from my house to there...i custom made a taillight bar for the frame so i can put it towards the end that way other motorists can see them better than the dolly lights also got aa huge drop hitch so the trailer will be higher because my chevy is lowered.............

so you traded the front axle and rear axle for a rolling chassis correct?

so your gaining back a 2wd frame all the front crap and rear axle?
