No issues on posting. As for a vid on putting it up, I'll assume you can google and Youtube as well as I can

But I will say that its just as easy in the opposite direction, as the handwinch does all the work. Just crank, tuck the folds in a couple times as you go, then latch it down and you are off.

That is awesome! I really like it, and everything you've thought of for those comforts off the grid...

I've got a local off-road shop building me an box trailer (similar to a Pikes Peak trailer). It will share my 32" MTRs, for as you said, to be able to share tires. I'll still use a traditional tent (I may get a roof-top tent later?), but for now I'll have room to carry some decent cots to get off of the ground. I'll see how it goes as I'll probably modify the trailer as time goes on. It does have a 12 volt power system. Tomorrow I've got to finish up tying up the wires under the dash for the brake control that I installed last weekend, as like yours the trailer does have electric brakes. I installed the Mopar 7-way wiring harness last fall (made for an LJ).

Anyway, I'm picking it up on Saturday if everything is ready to go. I also want a trailer for extended stays out in the woods. Last summer I camped at 11k feet elevation in Colorado just below a mountain pass. It was awesome, but what fits in the back of my TJ is called minimalistic camping.



Thanks again for sharing your notes!

Very nice, that will make camping quite a bit more comfortable I'm sure.

So you said you were in camping in Colorado? If that's where you're from shoot me a PM as I'll be moving out that way in a year or so and would love to pick your brain on offroad areas to check out....

^Unfortunately I no longer live in CO (I grew up there). I try and drive out there once a year, if the wife allows it. That's the reason for my trailer. This was last year's trip, and the trip before. I'd also highly recommend the Ouray area. Traildamage is a great resource that I use to plan my camping trips.

Well this afternoon I got the fuse installed between the brake controller and the battery, plus I have the ball mount in the tow receiver. I need to get off of the couch next and go tie up the wires under dash yet. I had the day off, but the wife left me with a list of other things to accomplish (like installing a new garbage disposal... what fun was that!).

x2. Ouray (and the entire region, including Telluride, Silverton, Durango, Lake City, etc...) is one of our favorites. We try to get out there every couple years.
