I would recommend putting a couple drop legs at the rear corners when using the log arch on big logs.  Will reduce frame flex significantly.

I was planning on making some kind of supports on the back.  If nothing else, I'll put some jack stands under it.

This was a boat trailer when I started.
 

 (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)
 I put a rear axle from a front wheel drive suv cause the boat axle bent while using it to deliver cordwood when I first started my logging business.

Do you have a bigger picture of that?  It looks interesting.

I found a receiver hitch deer hanger thing with a boat winch and cable for about 150.00 at a local farm store. I bought it to skin deer quick in the field and it works good for that. I have used it to lift pallet forks and all sorts of stuff onto my truck with a flat bed. May not lift the whole hedge log but may lift one end and winch it up.
