Here's a couple quick pictures of a dolly I made to pull a pup trailer behind my 6x6. The hitch is removable so I can install a short standard style hitch for pulling doubles. I haven't built the short hitch yet.

Fanstasic build!! I'm curious about the walking beam setup. Does it have any straight bump/droop travel? For example, on level ground as you increase the load in the bed, would the suspension begin to compress at all? It looks like the only suspension movement is when it's articulating, but perhaps I missed something in the build?

Can't believe how small it makes those tires look! I love it.

Thank you for the comments TommyR

The rear suspension is based on a Hendrickson "R" model solid mount suspension.

The truck was based off a Western Star 6900XD which has larger tires. Before I could find the tires I wanted these kinda grew on me and when it's loaded and off road the it'll stuff the tires. They also work very well off road. So I decided to leave well enough alone. At least for now,

Nice Dolly! I'd suggest moving the 5th wheel hitch forward to get the 5th wheel pin centered over the suspension on the dolly, to get a level ride with no porpoising.
