Yep, works great!

It may not look like it in the picture, but the wheelbase of the truck is pretty close to the same as our '90 Extended Cab Ford F250. With where the hitch is mounted, the OAL of the truck and trailer is about 6" shorter than the F250 with the same trailer. The turning radius, though, is quite a bit shorter than the pickup!

Upon further investigation, we found that the front axle is bent about an inch rearward on the right side. That explains the pull to the right when going down the road. Now to find an axle... And figure out how to install power steering...
