My plans keep changing as I go, but for now I'm planning:
Adding a better roof rack
removing the seats ( I do not plan on carrying passengers in the trailer)
creating a flat platform to serve as a bed with storage underneath, or maybe just a rooftop tent.
I bought the last rear winch bumper on the planet (ok, maybe not, but it seems like it) not sure if that'll go on the trailer just yet.
adding more battery capacity (either 2 or 4 deep cycle batts, or maybe a LiPO unit pulled from a Tesla pack depending on how much room I can find )
adding solar for keeping the batts full.
creating a fuel transfer system (it has a 19gallon TJ tank, but no plumbing)
plumbing for water, maybe a provision for heating water (propane water heater or heat exchanger off the engine)
Propane tank mount
Elevated rack over the a-frame hitch section.
Some sort of diesel parking heater
cargo area slide for ARB fridge
lift and tires to match the Jeep
Moving the MetalCloak fenders off the Jeep to the trailer, putting some new aluminum ones on the Jeep
I may try to fix some of the front-end ugly by moving the grill forward, hacking the fenders off the Jeep to fit around the tongue box, and fabricating a small hood to act as a lid for the storage area. That might make it a little less snubbed-nosed.
I might also try to extend the hitch a bit to give me more turning/flexing room.
A genny and A/C would be nice, but not sure I can pull that off just yet, but if I could, I will. I'm too old to sweat all night.
