Custom trailer

this whole build stared from getting an old trailer from a friend and wanting to change the hubs out to fit the jeep wheels. 2 weeks later and about $600, i have a brand new custom trailer.

new 3500 lbs axle with 5 on 5 hubs.




grinding the welds smooth



very rough fitment



tongue welded on



loose fitment of the redwood boards



bolted down redwood boards and welded on d-rings



now mounted on the axle and the jack welded on.



and it attached to the Jeep



Just need to do the lights and the side rails which will be done tonight!

Looks really good. You might want to cut and weld in some plugs on the end to help keep it from rusting. Other then that nice work sir.

nice looking trailer. Im in the process of "restoring" an M416 and was possibly considering a wood floor depending on how rusted the floor is since im a little better at working with wood vs metal plus i have the equipment. How did u secure the planks to the floor, im fairly new to any type of restoration.

I welded on 1-1/2" channel to the bottom of the frame. 8 cross members in all. there is a 1/2" sheet of plywood under the redwood planks, then i used 1/4" x 2" lag bolts to bolt down the wood from the bottom so there is no exposed screws/bolts from the top.
