No worries GregB. It's neat to know people actually look at my stuff.

LIKE MONSTALINER!!!!! How flipping awesome is that?? A company that takes the time to read posts from the people who order their stuff. I told you they were a great company!

GregB do you still have that tank in the back of your trailer? I bet it went to scrap too

Not sure what tank you are talking about? As for the Monsta... agreed, good service!

Sorry GregB. Figured out somehow this morning I clicked on to dagr8tim's trailer build when I was thinking it was your trailer.I was talking about the compressor tank in his trailer.

....yes...it was early and i could not sleep . Yours is looking good 2!

Looking for a way to carry fuel (unleaded) in the trailer.I'm thinking something in the lines of 15-20 gallons is where i want to end up.Just dont want to worry with hauling 4 jerry cans or worry about spilling when putting it in the jeep.anyone got any thoughts??

maybe someone has seen a under trailer fuel cell set up on a trailer??
..or maybe something like this??...

Thats a cool looking trailer. I was thinking of just finding a 5x8 utility trailer that needs work. i wanted to put jeep take-off wheels and tires, and paint it orange to match also. But great job on the trailer, I will wait for the updates on the lid.

My tree Contractor we use to cut trees on the Highway mounted one of those Fuel Stations on his Bucket Truck

He uses it to fill up his Saws with Mixed Gas. 15 Gal of Mixed Gas Lasts him all week

That would be a cool Idea to mount on your trailer for the trails. Think it would have to be mounted Higher then your gas tank because its gravity feed.

Great Idea though

I was thinking the same thing about the height. What would be a negative about installing an air inlet to the top of the tank??

I was kicking around the idea of applying air from my OBA system so it would not only fill faster...but uphill. This way I can install it out of the way of other things but still keep it useful.

Thanks.
I got a 6x10 frame on a axle that I kept from a pop-up camper if you need it. It might be a long drive to go get from Vegas,but it looks like your no stranger to long drives or the heat.

Gotta love your choice in color!!
I also like the center dash paint. How is it holding up so far?

Im kida stuck on the 5x8 size trailers. i dont have too much room for storage.

The center bezel is holding up good. I am going to repaint it tho, because someone opened the garage door while the paint was drying, and I got some dirt/dust in the paint.

What I did to paint it. I lightly sanded the whole thing, then painted it with flat white krylon fusion paint. Then 3 coats of Impact Orange paint I bought form ( automotivetouchup.com ), finally 2 coats of clear i got from them too.

Think I will try to paint mine as soon as time permits. I had the paint shop mix up more then I needed for the trailer. We have not decided how the lid is going to look so the paint was a "just in case".

Y'all need to help me decide on this lid and how it should open/look! Should it open from the side or back? Should it be flat style like a deck of cards on top or have some bends in her to go with the lines of the trailer? Paint or liner?

Remember, I am on the hunt for a roof top tent to go on top so keep that in mind. Thanks y'all.

Not trying to steal your thread but all this talk finally got me motivated to do the SOA on my trailer. Tried doing spacers but that was over $120 and a new 3500 axle made to fit my trailer was $207 shipped. Just ordered the CJ5 reproduction tail gate and hope to do that done next week...then paint to match my Jeep.

The soa will make that about three more inches taller than it is now?

That is a nice looking trailer set up. I tried the soa but changed it back
the same day. It rides nose down way too much with my stock ride.

Please keep the updates of all of your stuff coming on here if y'all want. It keeps me thinking of what to do next.
