yeah ive been working on this for a while so it has progressed pretty far. For the trailer I wanted to try something different so I made this set up. It works the same as drop suspension in the sense that when it goes over a bump the wheels fall due to weigh. It work but not so well in reverse. Needs some work.

the trailer is almost done besides fixing the links. Its primed now and just needs a few things. The interior is almost done but just needs some sanding to make the bottom smooth.

And here is how it sits now. Everything is extended and just needs sanding, and repainting.

Man it's been a while since I updated this. Funny thing is i made this much progress before the new year but i forgot to post it. Anyway, Heres how it sites right now: fully runs, steering was a pain and took me about 5 tries, and several paperclips to get it right but it works. decided to have the suspension set up this way because i wanted to get the full extent of the shocks and a panhard bar wouldve have gotten that done. The truck may be like this for a while since college has me by the throat (calculus 2 with trig substitutions and integration has me baffled ) along with more reading that is considered reasonable.

Anywho, I'll start more progress depending when i have time and money (so several months). On to pics!
