It still looks like a big, axle spread. Going to do some tire scuffing. Wonder how it will back in grass or gravel.
Fortunately I watched allt he informative videos first....lol Had I watched that one first I don't know if I could have continued on.

It should not scuff any different than your rear truck tires, and actually htey may have the spread between rear truck tires and that to reduce the scuffing effect. But when you think about it there should'nt be any difference than if the pin was over the rear axle of the truck, or at least not much the way I look at geometry. As for grass or gravel I wouldn't see it as any different than the trailer wheel or your truck wheel going over the same terrain....again, just my opinion.
