    Mine came off a little roller table/box slider ... them things they stick in trucks to load with... put two tabs in the channel and a bolt. Also 3" clearance from roller to ground. I use a different height drawbar for intown than freeway. So I can have the cool look when I need to and more clearance for roads I don't know.

    The trailer with 3 inches of clearance for the prop guard looks cool, but is a pain in the ass.

    Each time you have any irregular surface it's going to drag and that not cool. When you back up and there is any drop off behind the trailer of two inches
    it's going to catch and that isn't fun. Remember when you back up, that creates an up force on the trailer hitch which forces the back down even more.

    There are many opinions, but I will sacrifice a little cool for something that I can live with.

    Lower tire pressure till it hits the ground coming out of the driveway, measure, then add half inch for tire height...
