Alan, I did get the tub and frame from Dan. (sorry for the long lapse in replies)

want to update this, I have just about everything I need to do the build. ended up with some "c" channel to cap the frame and build the tongue out of.
I got some rubicon express flex joints for my control arms (to go into the jeep) the stocks lowers I replace with those will go into the trailer.
I hope to get this back in the shop by the middle of may and get hot and heavy on this.

picked up some stock lowers, I now have everything I need to build this. we have been super busy working on the house trying to get ready for little one #2 which is coming in sept. so I plan to get this back in the shop this week and get working on mounting up the suspension, and then to mount the tub on top of the frame to decide where the final cuts will be placed. then to build the frame extensions and tongue. it should be ready for wheeling by early fall...

welp, the trailer is back in the shop, I have the frame capped off, and burned in with my little welder, hopefully it will hold, if not, I have access to a bigger welder. that is a last resort though.
anyways, its got the frame attached, its still upside down and I've started running the wiring. i'm hoping to get the bolts I need for the arms/track bar, and start getting the suspension cleaned up so I can paint/ start assembling the suspension.
I should be able to have it as a roller within a few weeks.

trailer is still in progress, I ended up picking up some cj rear tub corners (in rough shape but I needed something to work off of. I hope to get the bad metal cut out and get them ready to work on shortly. we are expecting a little man within a month so I will be hitting this hard in hopes to get as much work in as possible.
