Nicely done!

Very clean looking!

Any further info on the build process?

The beginning of my trailer in frame form in the garage. Was a fun project to work on.

The frame is built from 1/4" steel. Pretty heavy duty but I am taking it off road. It has a 3500 lb axle. 35" tires to match my jeep of course! I designed a tongue that is adjustable to extend out another 4' for highway use and retract for off road use. Right now, I only have a ball hitch on it but will eventually put a pintle setup on it.

I mounted the box on the frame with intentions of being able to remove if I ever wanted to so there are bushings between the frame and the actually box.

I have limited tools so I had to cut my fenders with a cutting wheel but I think they turned out pretty good after all.

The dimensions are 44"W x 50"L x 22"D.

That's a great idea! What's the design?

Everything I can think of would rattle horribly.

The tongue design is just some holes I drilled and ran 1/2" bolts through. It seems to be very tight without any rattling.

The bushings between the frame and box helps a LOT with that too I am suspecting.

Only rattle problem I have is with the tongue jack itself but I can detach and throw in Jeep if it bothers me that bad.

Here is a picture after some use. I added this rack to the lid. Also, I used Jeep hood locks on the lid.

Notice the Wyoming bucking horse on my tailgate?
