Fitting the Timbren and electric brake hubs before drilling and welding it on the trailer.
Drilled, bolted and welded
With the rims and tires on it. The cardboard box represents a 20 gallon water tank that I could fit in now that the axle is gone. I realize I'll have to make a skid plate for it, but is it a good idea or do I lose too much ground clearance? The struts in front are for the required harbor freight box to hold the battery etc. to run a pump and Arb fridge. Should I put the water tank inside or get a smaller one?
Here is where it stands now, bottom and front bed lined.
Still need to resolve the bearing cap issue as the one that came with the hubs wont fit with the rims so I'll need to come up with another solution there. Resolve the water tank dilemma, flip it back over and start on the inside, bed line it. I have 48" slides that I'll put on 3" angle iron and weld to the bed so the floor can be slid out to get things when the RTT is in place.
Figure out where to put a propane tank that has external access for stove and hot water shower, etc. etc. etc. seems like this thing will never be completed...
