Here's a really nice tractor and trailer truck that's easy to make and durable.

Semi - Tractor & Trailer
This sturdy litle truck is made from 2 x 4 scraps and dowels. This item is so simple, I think it does NOT need any explanation. Simply download the drawiwngs and get going.

Detailed Instructions
*********** WARNING***********
Read my page on safety before building this item.

Construction Tips:

When drilling pilot holes for the axles, make sure the block of wood is true and plumb or the axles will not fit properly.
When drilling the wheel wells, clamp a scrap piece of lumber to the bottom of the base.
Use a belt or disc sander to round off all the edges before assembly.
Use a very thin, smooth flat washer between each wheel and the body.
Wax the axle to help it turn easily.
