Use a frigging winch, come along, hi-lift, whatever. But, loading using gravity generally causes issues.

$50 come along or $500+ in body work?

Made for a good video though.
$500 in body work????
There is gonna be way more than that.

there's prob 2k in work on box not counting the cost of that insanely priced dually fenders...



I am NOT a fan of those spring loaded wedge ramps on the HD Goose necks like that. they're great when you flip them back onto the trailer but they need some kinda of latch for loading to keep them from flipping up like that..
