Finally pulled the trigger on a YJ tub trailer I found. Added a nose box and a new jack. Did a maiden voyage on a 4 day camping trip last weekend. Worked out great. But, as always, the "mods" list has now grown! like... lengthen the tongue (and make removable), rack between the box and tub, rack system to over the top of tub for RTT.... and the list goes on. Here is V1.0 packed up ready to head out for the weekend.

If your talking about the black YJ tub... Thanks!

If your currently planning/building... here are a couple things on my mod list that are key.. food for thought:
- Even though it pulls great on the road, its so short it's really tough to back up. So a bit longer is better.. BUT.. on the trails shorter is better so your not dragging the tongue over the rocks... BUT still needs to be long enough to 1. Open the tailgate on the jeep. (now it hits the box) 2. The tongue box doesnt hit your tire when going through low points on the trail... when the previous owner of my trailer made it, he told me he had no idea that it would be too close. On the camping trip this past weekend, I had my rider jump out a couple times to watch and make sure the box didnt hit my spare as we went through serious dips in the trail. (came very close.. but didnt). So the next serious mod for mine will be some serious measuring and rebuild the tongue.. I'll add in an adjustable / removable one so I can lengthen for road, shorten for trail, and remove for security.
- The other issue this trailer has is balance. With the tongue box empty, and the spare on back, its back heavy. And I think when I lengthen it will be tongue heavy... so I'm going to have to spend some time figuring that one out.
- hand brake!. I was planning on using the existing parking brakes at some point... making a handle.. or using a junkyard hand brake lever... but was in no hurry. Well.. thats now right at the top of the list. While at the camp site, dealing with unlevel ground... it got a bit exciting a couple times. Really need a way to stop the trailer quickly!...
- Finally.. I went cheap on a bed liner material. I used the Duplicolor roll on crap.... and it is crap. VERY disappointed. Everywhere there was a touch point, I now have wear through the liner, through the paint, to bare metal. Even light items.. like the aluminum tarp poles lashed on. Where the poles touched the top edges of the tub... bare metal now. I didnt realize how much vibration / movement the items in the tub would have... and I didnt realize that the Duplicolor liner was total crap. Guess I'll be scraping all that off now and spending the cash on LineX!

Thanks guys, our Teardrop has been a real kick! Old Man Emu springs, Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks, Sound system, DVD player, propane stove, ARB Reefer, and so on...

I added a few pics of the interior to my original post.
