When the trailer is empty it will tilt itself when you release the latch pin. The trick is to adjust the valve based on the weight of the vehicle so the deck doesn't slam down when loading. I leave mine at about 50% and drive very slowly. The latch is automatic so once it locks you can back up to move the weight over the axles.
Its funny you mention the cylinder because I'm planning to convert to power up/down. My tractor and anything running I always load front first. I've winched a few pickup trucks backend first and had to adjust the valve AND use a rachet strap to get the bed back down. Power up/down would solve all this.
The low profile tires are 14 ply and they seem to hold up fine. I'm on the third set and they aren't hard to get. My local tire shop sells them for $89.
One thing you will notice about Econoline is they use larger brakes and 8-lug wheels.
