building MJ trailer

Hey guys, my names daniel. spend most of my time over on the ZJ forum, but this summer me and a couple friends are planning to build a trailer from an MJ bed/rear frame section, so i had a couple questions. i plan on using this for camping trips and if i need to haul something big that won't fit in my ZJ. done a couple searches but i cant really find what im looking for. does anyone know of a detailed build write up of this? like a build thread? i have a pretty good idea of what i have to do, but you can never research too much. thanks!

easiest way would be to mount the bed on an existing trailer. My son is considering a boat trailer that is galvanized steel and everything is bolted on, that way it can be cut to size and the axle can be moved around.

1989 metric tonne comanche, 4.0L, 5 sp trans, reciever hitch, double tube light bar, d30 front, d44 rear, alloy wheels, goodyear wranglers -- his name is snydley (as in whiplash)
1990 metric tonne comanche, 4.0L jeep speed motor, 5 sp trans, 2 in lift, d44 rear, d30 front -- her name is jenny
