That must be Aaron's truck.
Hey Mike, how is the throttle controlled on this trailer? Does it have a locker also?
Not sure about a locker, but the owner was demonstrating it and all he had was a simple on/off switch that would engage the starter motor. It was definitely geared too high and the starter motor definitely was taking some amperage to accelerate the airborne tires, but having said that, often times that little bit is all that's needed when your trailer is hung up on the trail, especially on a long, steep, loose hill climb like Thompson Hill, Dusy/Ershim. Listening to the starter motor kick on, kick off, kick on, kick off, etc, it made me wonder just how long the contacts are gonna last. I wonder if he turns it on and leaves the starter motor loaded until he clears an obstacle, or if he uses a momentary push switch to only give it a couple quick kicks when it's hung up
Unless his low range portion of his t/case is broken or missing, it should be geared down twice as low as was demonstrated. As I recall from just watching it, the tires were probably spinning a good 8 to 10 MPH. Reallllllllllllllllllllllly cool idea however. If I had a small Jeep and had to tow on every trail then I'd definitely invest some time in designing something like this. It was really neat
