Looks like a TSC logo on it, probably expensive though.

I don't have any of those stores in my area!

man i wish i had pictures... i think alot of you guys would call B.S. if you saw what ive hauled with my Z on 36's LOL.

-a big trailer intended to haul a Kobota tractor loaded down with a late '70s model complete conversion van laoded down with scrap metal for over 40 miles to the scrap yard... i think total weight of truck+trailer/van was well over 12,000lbs... and my truck by itself weighed 4,400lbs. so that means i hauled 8,000lbs over 40 miles. she did good though
-also hauled a '76 Dodge mud truck on a normal sized car trailer
-a '89 jeep cherokee on the same car trailer
-a '90 mustang SSP (police package) coupe on the same car trailer
-a '99 firebird v6 on bigger diamond plate car trailer with winch and storage box
-and my jetski when i had it lol

all this was with the 4.56 gears, intake and exhuast on 36's, but before the 266HR camshaft and Wait4me tune

That as the last thing i bought i finished building that trailer. I got it at Tractor Supply Co. It was less than 200 i think. Its just big enought for my spare tire so thats the main reason i got it but i always keep my straps, tarp and jack in there too. They have a plastic one also.

I dont have pics, but just bought a 16' Car hauler, and I scrap cars. Next year, depending on if I start my RWD conversion on my car, my Z will be hauling the car to shows all summer.

I put this one up a while ago, but here she is again. 25 ft V-Nose Snowmobile Trailer for NDSU's tractor pulling team. Weighs in at approximately 7000 lbs. A weight distributing hitch was a must have with this one.
