Well this is how it turned out.
I had to reposition the ball several times to get it right.
I wanted to just use the hitch off the truck but it put the weight in the wrong spot. The tug would lift off the ground and not pull.
I put it so weight was on all four wheels.
The drive wheels are on a "Live" axle so it is hard to get it to turn.
I put on a long wagon tongue so I could pull it around and make it turn. Works well on hard pack or pavement. My soft gravel make it hard to get it to move my 3000 pound boat with out digging to china.
I'm happy but as always more work is needed.Big smile

Looks great. 

 all you need with that glamour pait job are a set of 'Baby Moon" wheel covers and a coyote tail for the antenna.

Aw come on now. I didn't want it to be TOO flashy.
I'd probably have to licence it then.
