Thanks for the comments. Gave me a lot to think about...
Hard to know how it is until you have done it before. I cannot imagine attempting to load the tractor with 2 ramps!

I could go with a low deck and adjust-in the tractor wheels if had to. Will use electric brakes and break away. Did read in my Bronco's manual about the hitch to spread the weight to the front axle. Could be a possibility.

Or can plan on getting a more suitable tow vehicle as suggested. 1 ton dually was one, anyone have any 'minimums' you would have for a tow vehicle? I just did a quick craigslist search and found this for example: http://norfolk.craigslist.org/cto/4013512239.html

The disc is 7ft fast hitch type.

FWIW, Suggest checking into Federal/local DOT rule changes before jumping into truck/trailer purchase, going too "heavy duty" puts you in a new ball park with them. "Generally" GVWRs of 10k# max. for each the truck and the trailer should be safe. Although some will not agree that these rules apply, it is you that may pay the tickets. "Out-of-compliance" status could also affect insurance coverage/claims.

For a 200 and a disk? Just about any long wheelbase (reg cab long box, extended cab with short or long box) truck would do. Just put good LT tires on it, not P-metrics.

That 1-ton would definitely be overkill. But cool if you cleaned her up and put an interior in her.

A motor like a 302 is going to have to really rev to pull much, just the nature of the beast.

I'd look for an old F-150 with a 300 or 351, a Dodge with a 318 or 360, or a Chevy with a 350. A fuel-injected 4.3 with the right gearing would be OK as well, but you're not gonna run with the big dogs with it, and you would probably want a weight-distributing hitch.

With a weight-distributing hitch, if you're not in a hurry, keep in mind the truck's limitations, and not piling traffic up behind you, your Bronco may not work too bad. Do you have good tires on it, and is it stock height? I wouldn't bother trying it out if it's lifted more than 2 inches.
