A 416 for the TJ
 
There are some cool trailers here so I thought I might share mine :cheers2:

I grew up camping out of a Bantom trailer so I always wanted one.
As it happened I found what I believe to be a 416 on a ranch and talked the guy into parting with it.
It was in pieces and needed help

My main goal is to set it up to tow behind our TJ on camping trips

I had a friend make a new longer tongue

I swapped out the axle for one with 5 on 4.5 lugs to match the TJ
I wanted to keep it a spring under so I spaced the fenders with all- thread and washers

Other additions is an ammo box on the tongue, a vice mounted to it, a TJ rear tire carrier and a rattle can paint job

I'm sorry it's not the best write up and like all projects it will never be finished finished

Thanks to all for the help and ideas

Lokks like a pretty solid build... I know you would sacrifes space in the trailer but you might consider relocating the spare up front... add some tongue weight too

It actually tows perfect empty

Thinking about putting a water tank up front
