BMWgoneWILD Equipment, work, toys, randomness

I have been posting photos to my website and Facebook pretty regularly here recently so figured might as well brag a little on here too.
I'm pretty happy with my setup here lately

Comments, critics, and other stuff welcome!

First two pictures are the trailer I started. Next two are the gooseneck I purchased here a month or so ago. I loooooove it...except for the fact that I am as long as a semi now...

"The Shop" soon to become more organized and filled with legal (maybe illegal) fun stuff....

Mom's Kubota tractor she lets me use for the small fee of $100 a day.

Love the tractor. I would back it on. You want the majority of the weight over the axles of the trailer. No need for a super duty to be squatting that badly.

I agree. Whatever the load on a trailer is, it should be loaded and positioned over the axles rather than on the towing vehicle.

I agree. The only reason the tractor is so far forward is because a brushhawg s attached to it (can't see due to trailer sides). If the tractor is reversed in then the bucket will hang off the trailer by about 3.5 feet. Also as far as the truck squat goes it is the way I have it lifted. 4" in the front with stock rear. It's OVER level. Similar to "cencal style" or "Nebraska squat" or whatever the hell they call it. Still pulls completely fine. The axles on the trailer are only 3500s so for only pulling a few tons every now and then no towing capacity is lost. Appreciate the advice regardless.

Nice Rig! As both a Ford guy, and a BMW fiend, I have to see some pictures of your BMW.

The BMW was actually sold a long time ago but the name has stuck. I sold it to buy a supercharged M3 E46...Guy sold it to a local the day before I sold mine... Was a bad day needless to say

Regardless pic are below of the BMW, Twin Turbo Z, Cummins, bikes, etc... Went through a bit of a car wh0re stage for a few years.
