I like the decals on the truck! The print may be a little tiny, but the trailer more than makes up for it!

Looks very nice! What's in the trailer? The truck could use a little help holding it up.

might just want to think about putting more of the weight in the tailer over the axels.

What's up with a short bed? Don't you bag any grass?

All the lettering looks great, I love the visual appeal of your truck and trailer.

I second the airbags. Sagging like that is going to effect the handling. Mass Diesel has the best price on PacBrake airbags. Your looking at about $250 and they are really easy to install. Firestone is good but PacBrake is better.

My Foreman tows a wider 16' enclosed with more weight in it behind a 06' 2500 Ram and we have it airbagged. I have my 3500 dually bagged as well.
