Started with a Northern Tool 4'x4' utility trailer
I added MT side biter wheels, BFG Dueler AT 30" tires, an Olympic cargo rack, and a diamond plate tool box for dry storage. Had to replace the fenders with a set from etrailer.com and some lighting and paint and here is the finished product:
I like how you kept it simple by just using a tool box. Are you planning to have the sames wheels/tires on the Jeep as the trailer?
Thanks and no. I chose those wheels for the trailer because I like the look and they have about 3.5" BS. They worked on the stock trailer hub and I didn't have to modify the axle at all. But they would stick out way too far for my tastes on my rig.
The tool box isn't bolted down, so I can take it out easily for larger load. The rack is just held in with 4 eye bolts for attaching tie downs. It bolts right out if I need the whole trailer for something large, but both pretty much stay on most of the time.
I'm happy with how it came out, I get at least one comment on it whenever I take it someplace.
Question: How are you securing the toolbox if it's not bolted down?
Well its surrounded by 3 sides on the front and the rear is very close to the front edge of the cargo rack. Also, I cut a piece of treadmill mat to lay on the floor of the trailer, it provides skid resistance, so I don't think its going anyplace. If I decide to run the trailer w/out the cargo rack, I'll just strap the box down.
Really nice. The larger wheels, tires and fenders make it.
My experience with low, black trailers is that when backing at night you can lose sight of it. Suggest you consider adding a running lamp to the front outer lower edge of each rear fender. That way you always have something to see in your mirrors when backing up at night.
