Budget YJ Tub Trailer Build

Well I've decided my project for the next several weeks will be a Tub Trailer. I picked up a YJ I am parting out and since the tub is kinda wrecked I am going to use it to make a trailer. I have seen a few builds in which the trailers came out awesome but much more invested than I want to. My goal is to have it done under $500.

I have a extra CJ tailgate since the Yj tailgate will be going on my cj. Before I confuse everybody I will stop. I made my first purchase on a set of 4 crager soft 8's with 31" all terrain tires. They cost $125 but my dad is going to use 1 as a spare for his trailer so I am out $100.

Attached is a picture of the YJ and the wheels. More posted to come over the next few weeks.

Sorry guys. The new TJ took priority so this idea is going on the back burner...maybe next year.
