Hey could you sketch up the landing leg in the 11th picture? I need to make one. I can get close just looking a photos but it would be nice to have some dimensions. It looks like ¼ X 2” stock but I don’t even know that for sure.
I will get you some info

Thanks, I will appreciate that.
FYI there is a T3C website. I have to warn you though, They want people to restore them to original rather that actually use them. They are kinda anal about it. I don’t think they cared for my paint job or the mods the previous owners made. I sold the original combat rims on mine, it cut the cost of the trailer in half. Mine was modified too much to return to stock, which is unfortunate because some stuff (like the WWII combat rims) were indicative of a VERY EARLY 46 model.

The ideology of RADICAL Islam is very much like Nazism, except they don’t have the cool black uniforms.

Screw it I'm too old for this crap!

PM sent.

I would love to make the trailer a exact restoration but it’s just not in the cards. I don’t got the time or money too. I will make it very usable and strong so it will be around for another 50 years. It might also be getting a set of longer CJ springs because I am getting some for free.

Thanks, I figured I needed a functional cool trailer to pull behind my TJ-6 project.

Craigslist, Ebay.......
Basically everywhere you mentioned. Just have to keep your eyes open!Government Surplus Auctions at Government Liquidation is a good DRMO site. You can search for a base that close to you. But you wont find a trailer this old from DRMO!
She's coming along nicely. I wish I had the time for mine. Mine is in as bad of shape as yours was. My frame is good. I have rust at the bottom of the side panels and a bit on the floor. Considering how old these trailers are and what they have been through, they are in pretty good shape. Who would think that some old utility trailer they bought back in the late 40's would still be around in 2010! Imagine what all that trailer has hauled! The stories it could tell!

The trailer is still working well I have had it in the woods and on the highway lots. I really like how much more stuff I can now pack. It also really adds utility to the jobs of my jeep. I do have some more plans for it… I think I will be doing some frame extending to it this winter…

Is that the original tailgate for your Bantam trailer?? Only reason why I ask is I have a Bantam as well and my tailgate is the complete opposite of that. Maybe they adjusted throughout the years but I have a 46 as well

I MAKE POOL BALL SHIFT KNOBS FOR $15
PM me if interested

Got Balls?

The tail gate might not be original it was welded on at the hinges when I got the trailer…. It got some use this year took my oldest elk hunting for the late cow season. I did not take any shots of the trailer loaded with elk and stuff. My group got 8 animals this year. And the trailer is very nice fit for me and the jeep, it is just so handy to have.
