    What's up everyone. We are currently freshening up our lowboy trailer and truck. I am looking for some inspiration and thought that with all the iron on this site there has to be plenty of lowboys to move it.

    If you have any pictures of lowboys, loaded or not, Please post them up. I would appreciate it.

    Thanks AJ

    Here is a picture of our setup. 1991 Peterbilt 377 with a 99 Etnyre Blackhawk 55 ton non ground bearing.

    This is the one i'm trying to buy at present . It has BiFold ramps and a tiltable middle deck . It also has a 20,000lb winch . It can be used as a drop deck or with the deck tilted it can load pavers , buses etc .

    JTB , check them out . They also build tilt slides (roll backs) and Super Tilt tri axle trailers . The low loading angle of this one wins my heart .

    I like your handle , at school they called me Reggie one wheel , because i could ride all the way to school on one wheel . When i got my license they changed it to Reggie Redline , as everywhere i went the engine was Redlining .

    thanks horse,
    yeah thats why i got the name redline to from riding hypersports bikes at redline, though luckily never faster than my angel could fly along beside me (one minor collision with the pavement shed some light on my impending fate but i headed the warning soon enough)

    How do you change the inner tires? It doesn't look like there's enough room to get a wrench in there or even slide the rim off the studs.
