i put up those pics because that is the same truck before they put the other axle..wich btw is a trailer axle

I follow that, but the idea is the same, using a trailer from Galaxie Limited as a start point for the box

That's not a bad idea. You would have plenty of material to work work with and easier to remove excess than to add

Thanks a lot guys! I haven't had the pleasure of using anything from the Moebious line of models but if you guys think it'll be what I need to use then I'll order two cause the one Petty hauler I'm building has very much the same pattern too

Here is the Mobius kit

Another kit to consider is/are one of the AMT race hauler kits. They come race ready with internal components, have the "low boy" stance and the sides are cut out for the tandems. Three versions that I am aware of, Gallee/Kraco Indycar, Coors NASCAR and Kodak NASCAR. I have all three and can shoot some parts pics if you like. They are not hard to get and at or below the Mobius kits.

Here are a pair available from a seller with a excellent reputation

I have 4 of those race car haulers & they have doors on the sides that break the lines up too much I checked out the Moebius kit & I think that's the way to go

Looks like between the 3 of us we'll have all the details worked out It's a shame that trailer kit is $70

How do the tires & wheel fit /attach on these models? Can they be easily adapted to AMT steel axle

I'll call my friend and see if he still has the instructions from his build

He ditched the instructions. When my latest order comes in next week i'll have him bring his built trailer over when he drops my order off. I'll shoot some pics too.

Updates? Been thinking about something along these lines as well but, not Ivo truck.

The IVO truck has the same wheels IMC originally put on the box cover of the  L 700.  The ALF wheels are a good choice on the Dodge.
