Behind a 3/4t shortbed. Keeps the pin weight light so he doesnt need air bags .
Trailer suspension wont take that very long. Thats an extra ton or more on the trailer axles.

How can you tell from the picture that it is a 3/4 ton?


Experience without good judgment is worthless; good judgment without experience is still good judgment!

Without adequate pin weight I don’t think he’d be on the highway. I had to add a few hundred pounds of counter weight up front to safely carry 1000 lbs behind my fiver. Would that UTV weigh 1200 lbs?

It appears to be a four seater RZR, probably around 1500. I'd sure like to see the welding ,and bracing to accomplish that.

Lot of naysayers ,but it looks to be working. Sure would like to know more about that setup.

What this has effectively accomplished is put the trailer over it's GVWR, ABUNDANT stress on rear axle but this person definitely has a can do attitude, wow.
