Wow - awesome build up. Thanks for sharing! Do you have any idea on how much it weighs? Apologies if this has been discussed - if it was I missed it.

that is a great idea for a shower water system. You're making me want to take a trip to the steel supply and start building

Yeah the green rubber thing is a sink. I don't know how much it weighs, I really need to find out though. the tongue weight is only about 100-120lbs

Hey There, great build! Could you tell me how thick your wheel adapters are? I'd love to get some of those for my trailer.

Thanks,
Adam

Did you need to supply any details to adaptit to get the right 5pm 4.5 wheel adapters or was it just a strait order from the site? Ready to do the same.

Sierra 4x4 Trailers
That may be reasonable pricing I don't know but for that kind of coin you could build one hell of a trailer with nice tires & wheels .
That is a very cool trailer , you did an awesome job . Are you going to put built in leveling legs at each corner ? Again NICE!!!!!!

They originally came equipped with tail lights. If the one in your paint ball field is missing them they aren't too hard to come by; just check ebay. I would NOT recommend towing a trailer that did not, at a minimum, have stop and turn signal light functionality. Its just a safety concern.

Just about every state requires lights in the rear of a trailer.

Awesome Build!

Dawson - Great job on the build.

I just picked up an old M416 last week and would appreciate any help you could send my way in ways of build details.

Mine is in pretty bad shape, but hope to get it looking good this year.

I am down in the Houston area and would like to meet up sometime.

Again, great job and thanks for sharing you build.

Rick

Love your build up. I have an 05 LJ rubi same color as yours and in the process of "upgrading" an M416 to camp with. As far as the wheel adapters, looking back are you satisfied or would you have done an axle swap to get your tires under the fenders?
