Re: Mounting a front end in the rear for 4wheel steer
I've seen it done up close in show rigs which never see dirt, and I know it has been done on trail rigs too. Full hydraulic steering is usually used in the rear, however this won't go over well in most states. So, unless it's a trailer queen and never sees the blacktop you may want to reconsider. You're going to have to be concerned with caster angles, cutting/turning of the knuckles might be necessary. You'll also have to find a way to lock the rear wheels straight ahead if you plan on driving it on the road. This is not something you want to have break at even 20 mph.
