    I added some wheels! I can pull it with one hand now. MY GX has air leveling so not to worried about ground clearance.

    Are you worried that they might drag going up and down hills, curbs, driveways?

    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Not really where I can ride is easy to get to, and like I say the GX has air leveling. The wheels are really not lower than the center of the carrier. Been thinking of making them quick attach though if I ever do a long haul.

    That's a great idea. It's funny how wide the rails have to be for the TW tires. My rail is regular width and the rear tire sits on top of it.
    Would there be any advantage or disadvantage if the wheels were swivel casters ?

    Picked up at Home Depot took me awhile to find ubolts that fit the wheels and work with the Black Widow. Abou $18 for everything drives fine without swivels thought about that but figured sand roads could mess with the bearings. Swivels were $1.00 more per caster. I think these were $5.97 each.
