the trailer will be getting a complete rebuild over the winter months, i sold my xj (sniff,sniff) and bought me a 2010 4 door rubi, ansd now its the wrong colour, the plan is to sand blast everything, frame, fenders and inside will get the bedliner treatment, the tub will be painted mango tango, , the lid will be black , all tie downs and brackets and stuff will be powdercoated black,

You really did capture the look exactly with that setup.

I was on the fence regarding pintles; I think you have convinced me.

i find the thing with the pintle is the balance of the trailer , get it right and you wont hear it, if the balance is off its gonna clunk
