    Should have it for March VIR
 
No tilt bed?? Correct me if I'm wrong. But without a tilt bed loading and unloading will be hard to do unless you ramps are extra long to change the angle. I do belive I read some where that the Boss requires an 11 degree ramp to safely load and unload.

I have foam race ramps I intend to use to get the correct angle. I'm pretty sure it will make it over the dovetail since it's a longer 4' dovetail. Gonna ask them about the dovetail angle though. Don't want to scrape.

One of the things I did when I had an open trailer and a low car was to leave the trailer attached to the car and screw down the jack on a 4 x4 and raise the rear of the car and front of the trailer. This change the angle and made loading and unloading a lot better.

Yeah. I plan to do this as well. I figure I can back the truck up the race ramps a little bit to accomplish that while it's connected.

I dunno. I had a 5' dovetail tilt-bed and I still scraped the stock splitter although not enough to damage it, let alone an LS or WC splitter....

I have the WC splitter and get up my race ramps fine. Need the extenders though. Sharpest angle is at the ground so dovetail shouldnt be a problem.

If you've tested it then you're obviously good to go. I was just letting you know how mine worked in case you haven't tried loading it on that trailer yet.
