    Not to hi-jack or plug this old critter I have but imagine it with bunks and a General long logger. It lived it's life in Easton owned by Graham Bros logging, I saw it in 1972 with a six log load.
    When building it I made it just so I could change it out to a old long logger. I have available quite a few old long log trailers and bunks, a aluminum bang board would fit real nice.

    You should see the beauty in person, it's an awestruck ordeal in itself. Don't ask questions just absorb it in smile and acknowledge the work. Might drop by again one day myself to see more of it after Covid-19 disappears to the history books.

    That's actually highway 7 between mineral and Morton. A lot of the same type of topography though.

    These two rigs would work great for your operation.

    That looks like Corning or Red Bluff.

    Looks good. That's quite the homemade double air cleaner set up.

    Has it got a master and slave hydraulic steering?

    Probably going to have to get the torch out to remove that front bumper and jack assembly, I bet they welded that right to the frame.
