Looks heavy. How is the rear drive gonna be on that? You gonna stretch a belt all the way back?

still think you should move the rear axle up a little more, trucks dont have the axles all the way to the back

The closer the rear axle is to the front axle, the tighter the turning radius will be. School buses are set up this way so the bus feels shorter when turning.

Got one of those all wheel steering rear-ends? That would help with the turning and you could leave it way back there.

This is why I'm moving the front axle rearward as well as putting the rear axle near center of the bed on The Red Fox

That way, even though the rig itself is twice as long, the WHEELBASE is only a foot or so longer than stock

You ever give any thought to dual axles in the rear? Then you could make a set of these:

Expensive to buy, but it's all in the labor. Just sheet metal bent and bolted together with chain links.

that will be cool, but I would take the fenders off of the tractor and build something that doesn't have fenders with no tires. if you know what I mean.
