as retarded this might sound i decided to scrap the trailer bed idea and im going with dinoot jeep trailer kit







ha. i built the frame around the tub and in the end i dont like the the look of that ..:homer:
look weird as fuck being narrow and fenders sticking out almost a foot

i will ether sell the tub now or keep it and build off road trailer and sell it
later

Project looks good man and your making good progress.

The new bed kit looks like it will be a much better fit, the other one reminds me of the military bed people throw on every rusted old truck and think it looks tough... I've never been a fan.

thanks guys


i got the bed yesterday. it takes cj style tailgate i had already




so i took the old bed off and mocked it up real quick


looks much better,
To me wheelbase looks little too long , but will see how it looks with the bigger tires hard top ,rear cage rocksliders
the rear flare is there just for mock up it will have tube fenders like front

i dream of 1ton swap and links and i could move the rear axle forward if i dont like it









last weekend i finished floor pans and body mounts
i hate welding painted sheet metal ,but im glad its over :)

Very nice job, Your front fenders are the same way I did mine. I ended up adding 5 inches into the rear of my hood when I stretched my wheel base, but I like how you just used the face of the grill, again great job.

some progress

converted strikers on the cj tub to accept new style door
just piece of flat stock,
drilled oversized hole for adjustments
took apart YJ striker and salvaged the cage nut and striker bolt
flat stock will be welded to tub and i'll make some bracket to stiffen it up on the back
