Thanks. I think that amount is going to double pretty quickly once I start outfitting it. Will probably be pieced together over the next few months but it should be pretty cool when it is all done. Not having a pickup, I also need to be able to de-camperize it when I'm not using it too so I'm going to have to do this carefully. Wish me luck.

sweet trailer bricktop

I found a place to get rooftop tents for pretty cheap (around 400 bucks)

if you are interested shoot me a pm. They don't have many left and I don't want to tell everyone because they will sell out before I have enough money to buy one.

Great trailer! One question, I see you've got a license plate for it (makes sense), how did you describe it on the application? It's not like they have "Old Jeep TJ" in the computer as a trailer type. Or do they not ask the type, so long as they get their money.

I don't think they care. They listed it as home made.

You could always fab up some kind of top for it and then get one of those fold out beds that are made for the back of a TJ

Great. Tough to back up when you're in a tight spot though. I've had to disconnect it a few times. I think it is going to be a lot easier behind the TJ when it is done than it is behind the JK. The overall length right now is about 811 feet...

Wow. Thanks man. I tell you what though, I'd be a heck of a lot more of an inspiration if I could do all my modding myself. I think the guys who can modify their rigs in their garages are the people who are the real inspiration. People like Gunkel, who build rigs from smoking heaps. I just have a few good ideas rolling around in my melon and I'm fortunate enough to (A.) work at a place that can bring my ideas to life and (B.) have a few spare bucks from time to time to pay them to do it. I do very little of the actual wrenching, cutting, etc myself. But again, thanks!

ps. If you're not familiar with Gunkel, check this out: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/06...eproof-597877/
