Nope, no money to start this project yet. (Could be a while).

I am looking to get a set of RE 5.5" front coils. I'll trade my 4.5" or pay (not too much though) for them. Send me a PM.

I've actually been hunting for totaled TJs and YJs. I'm going to try to make a trailer out of the back half of one. I actually think that it will be easier, cooler and cheaper.

Even a cheap '97 TJ would be fine. I could keep the half doors and repaint them to match my Jeep. If they are full doors, I'll just sell those. Sell the hard top or soft top. Sell the engine, tranny, and t-case. Basically part-out the whole thing but the tub (sell the front fenders and hood). I think selling all of those parts could almost completely offset the cost of the TJ.

I'm currently mocking up my plans on Solidworks. I'll post another thread when it's more presentable.

For now, this thread can just serve as inspiration to others.

Your original design was great. Good ideas and very good looking. Would involve a lot of fabrication as everything is custom. Nevertheless, truly distinctive. Nice job.

I was thinking of building something very much like what you have designed. I'm wondering if you would be interested in selling a copy of the model. I have solidworks and the slills and equipment to build it. Is it a working model with real numbers?

I also have a solidworks seat and was looking to do something like this... Could you pm me as well with a price for buying the model off of you? That is if you are still interested in sharing it.

This red trailer

I LOVE this thing too! I am going this weekend to pickup my 37" BFG AT's for my build. I am going to do my best to build this trailer with a few changes. I am going to build it with an inside width of the box at 46" the same as a ford ranger stepside. This way I can use a roll up hard tonneau cover. I really like the boxes on the side and figure these are going to be the biggest pain in the butt to build. On the front I am going to have my spare tire mounted but will probably still include the battery just put it into one of the side boxes. This will be the same width as my JK with the same size tires. Wish me luck this will either be really cool or a really expensive project I screw up!

You need to download my jeep I did back a year or two ago. You can modify it and then attach the trailer. I think it would look sweet!

I love this trailer so I am building something close.

I really like the idea of this trailer and wanted something to pull behind my JK. I made mine with the box 4ft X 7ft. I wanted the side boxes long enough to put a fishing pole in full assembled. I also wanted to be able to sleep in it without the tent. It can also now haul a motorcycle. I am using the same size tires as my Jeep 37". It's about half way done. I am learning that there is a ton of work for one of these. Crazy amount of work. This is my 3rd real welding project so it's a learning process. A buying process too as I need new tools all the time to do diferent things. Ok so now I don't know how to post pictures???
