NM Chapter President
Do you realize that MoPar Proud actually created the above???? It wasn’t try NtOActually, tryNto has made it easy for me. I remind people of the guidelines that were posted a few months ago.
Folks, it's become painfully obvious that we have some issues with posts on here, and we have decided that it's time to wrangle in the monster in an effort to improve the forum experience for ALL members.
Here are some areas that we will be cracking down on more:
*Profanity. Profanity simply isn't going to be acceptable, and that includes using alternate characters in place of letters. An "A" followed by two "z's" is the same as an "A" followed by two "s's". One of my sticking points is the term douche or dbag; no more.
*"Dog-piling" or a "mob mentality". I see it all the time, a person posts a question or asks for input, and pretty soon one member slams them and before we know it, we have four or five guys jumping on. No more.
*Respect. We all need to make an effort when conversing with folks, to be as respectful as possible. Treat others like their input is gold; you don't have to like an idea but be respectful. It's possible to have a discussion with opposing views and still being friendly and respectful. Childish antics and fits and personal shots/attacks are not acceptable, this isn't Congress. Treat others with the utmost respect and you'll get it in return.
*Baiting. I don't go a day without seeing multiple posts designed to instigate an argument, or crafted in a way to provoke another member's response. No more.
Basically, folks, if you can't treat others with respect, and keep the language down, and follow the very rules that YOU agreed to when you signed up for this forum, you don't need to be here. We're all grown men, it's time we act like it. I expect the longer-term members to act as a positive example for the newer guys.
This is going to be a long process, and I expect many won't like the vacations they receive. Consider this your warning folks, we will be swift in dealing with issues and won't be lenient in our disciplinary measures.
Please, everyone, before you post a message, read over it again. Ask yourself "will this instigate an argument?", "If this is going to add to the value of the thread?" or "is the language acceptable?" If not, change it before you hit submit.
Indeed, but since I don't have a 4500 or 5500, I ordered mine (a PJ) without a lot of those extras (no upper deck, spread axles, extra tool boxes, lift axle function, power jacks, or winch). Mine's also only 32 feet.What an amazing trailer wow
Why does that guy keep a schittttt eating grin on his face, much similar in nature to Sylvester after he swallowed Tweety? My nephew sent me a link to this same guy touring the Diamond C plant. Axed it after 3 minutes tops....What an amazing trailer wow

You might have found it useful to learn how they saved weight by using their style of build. Instead of using a traditional structural beam, they're using an engineered cambered beam and one piece neck, which means that the materials are thinner. For example, their engineered beam is 18" inches vs the industry standard 14" beam, but the weight savings is still 4.3 lbs lighter per foot.Oh, and full disclosure: I had no sound so I have no idea what all the guy talked about.
I like that one, too. Full coverage is always good. I might need one for my EcoDiesel.
Most of that was easy enough to see, And in my case, saving 138 lbs. isn't that big of a deal since I'm not towing with a 1500.You might have found it useful to learn how they saved weight by using their style of build.

Looked like he couldn't figure out how to lower the dove tail, which cracked me up.Why does that guy keep a schittttt eating grin on his face, much similar in nature to Sylvester after he swallowed Tweety?

That's about the size that I want, but in a lowboy. If I went with Iron Bull, here's the one I would get (24' feet, 7K axles):Sure wish I still had the very light aluminum trailer. With only 7K axles it wasn't quite enough, and at 25 feet, it was a bit on the short side. Still, that's enough for the tractor and other small things.
Am i the only one here that hates split deck trailers? or am i the only one that has had to load a split deck with a long piece of equipment or a long vehicle?
Let's hope they find better welders by then than whoever worked on your current Iron Bull flatbed.That's about the size that I want, but in a lowboy. If I went with Iron Bull, here's the one I would get (24' feet, 7K axles):
Okay, that was somewhat obvious, but I think many would've liked to see the dove tail in operation.He was showing how the locking mechanism worked.
No, you're not. About the only advantage they have that I can can think of is if using one exclusively for a skid steer.Am i the only one here that hates split deck trailers?
