Does that weird linkage off the back axle tie into the ridiculous drop hitch?

Car dolly held together with ratchet straps and booger welds. But these fenders stole the show

Trailer fenders made from old tires are the shit. 3-rib tractor tires hold in a blowout real well.

Ghetto fab/ hack jobs

Found an absolute gem on Insta yesterday. Claims to be a 32Ē lift on 54s.

Rear axle looks like itís got the twin towers stacked on it.

I couldnít tell in the picture, is that carrier bearing just disconnected and flopping or did he drop it too? Either way thatís a sweet rear driveline angle.

I am looking at that, and picturing it going down the highway when suddenly the driver has to slam on the brakes.

I'm thinking it probably won't come to that. Hitting the first good bump at speed with that draglink angle and the rebound from the front blocks is probably going to catapult the thing into the guardrail anyway.

I was picturing the axles using the blocks as leverage, folding and bending the leaf springs until they exploded, so basically, yeah.

Maybe with those giant tires the braking power is reduced so that the truck is incapable of hard braking?

Either way, it would be fun to watch.
