Just found these for $96 at one of the worst websites I have seen in a long time , but the mounts look good and the price is fair . Guess I am going to add these to the schedule
I saw those too! ok ok... I'll probably go with those ones too.

Oops... that wasn't the site I went too. These look nice for the money!

I dont go to Stus site much , probably should spend a little more time reading there . Did you notice that was Blaine doing the outboarding and that it was done in 2002 ? I think I might give the Daves towers a whirl , or plasma cut three pieces of steel and weld up something similar .

Honestly I like daves mounts better especially if I ever go coilover but for the money its a tough choice on whether I'll get something like that.

If $76 is going to break the bank a fully customized suspension wouldn't be in the plans. Just to play devils advocate

I actually really like those towers, that is a really good price for that style. The ability to run coilovers on the same mount is nice too if your build ever progresses that far.

2"x2" box tubing frame with 2.5"x2.5" receiver tube that will run front to back . The spring hangers will be home brew'd from 2"x4" box tubing , and the shackle mounts are left over from an old CJ project . I think I am going to run all the wire in piece of conduit welded inside of the frame , that way the wires will be out of the way and protected .

What do you think ?

Just to make sure I am understanding this correctly...

2x2 square tube for the 'main' frame, this would be fine to build the entire frome from 2x2.

2.5x2.5 receiver tube running centerline front to back? I'd just run the receiver sq tube to a center crossmember to save some weight. Do you plan on 1 crossmember or two ? I am looking back at your thread now to look for pics of your trailer build...It's been awhile.

Reused shackle mounts are a great idea and the conduit is ingenious. I am cheap so I just use a coat hanger and wire my trailers through the frame tubing after it's all welded.

I wanted to use 2"x4" but it seemed a little like overkill . I was a little worried about the strength of the 2"x2" but it sounds like it will be more than enough . You have quite a few more of these under your belt than I do so I appreciate your input .

I was planning on one crossmember , do you think thats enough ? Cutting the receiver tube in half is a good idea heck maybe even thirds if I was to run two crossmembers?

I stole the conduit idea from my old mountain bike that had the cables ran internally . It was clean and they didnt hang on anything so I think it will work well for this application .
