goose ball will have to be behind the axle just a bit with a 14' bed to clearance trailers ect.

my Tork locker hoodie to the brunt of the impact but lost a little skin on my left thumb holding an air chuck on this guy when it popped.  ring hit my shoulder and left shin!  probably only had 5-10 psi in it and was at least the 6th time i have filled it to move.

sketchy! 

surprisingly metalico didnt care the chassis had 5 tires on it, and that it fell off the trailer in the middle of the yard!  win!

I wonder if falling off the trailer is what made the tires not matter.
