Maiden voyage for my new trailer

I've been wanting a trailer for some time now so I built this out of some of the junk I had laying around. It's loaded and ready for a trip thru Deer Valley tomorrow morning. Can anyone pic out the Land Cruiser parts ?

Yes ! everyone needs locking hubs on their trailers Those old brake drum spindles make for a good trailer axle.

The trailer is not quite finished, I still gotta get a couple offset rims and 35 inch tires to match my Cruiser. That way they'll all be interchangeable.

Ah yes, I thought about that. The tail lights are " quick detachable "
