    I am building a 31 ft flat bed with tandem Deuce axles, High Angle Driveline is building the shafts with an extreme angle double CV. I built the trailer in sections so that when I get home from this deployment I can weld the large sections together and then install the driveline. Once it is done I'll be sure to post pictures of it all. I wanted a trailer to put my off road toys on and then be able to get far enough into the middle of no where that I don't have to worry about anyone finding me if I don't want to be found. There are a few things on the table for the design that were pretty hard to build but it's a cool set up. There is a fuseable link in the shaft so if I bind it up the fuse will blow and not the driveline. And fuses are easy to change by design. To preven the no pics back lash please understand that I am halfway around the world from home right now. Ya'll are just going to have to be patient.

    Looks pretty cool, but just my two cents: without a lot of weight in the trailer, it's not going to add as much traction as you think. But it is a cool idea, if you DID have the weight in the trailer, and the front wheels were spinning, it might help get you over a hump that you otherwise couldn't. Turn your 4x4 into a 6x6 in a way.

    The trailer doesn't add any traction, basically it just negates the drag from a towed trailer so you end up with as much traction as the car alone.
    But it will give you that extra push needed if you get cross axled.
