Really? Are they flat bed trucks or 'tow' trucks? Mine don't have 37s, but it's a cclb. I've had mine taken to the shop on a flat bed. They tilt the bed down, cable it up onto the bed and then set it down for transport. Are they worried about the height?

Do you have a set of stock wheels to throw on it?

No stock wheels around. Sold them all during the build. They were flat bed trucks...Truck drives, just needs some stuff welded up before it can "drive"...

My buddy id trying to find a trailer to rent right now...

I had my tow truck guy a tad nervous, my power steering lines blew the first week I bought my truck. It was barely hanging on his flatbed. The 37" tires were touching each side of his flatbed rails.
