Getting ready to start my expo trailer build. Been gathering parts. Got tires mounted today on spare Rubi wheels, adapters came to mount wheels. Cut some steel, got some boxes. Now I just got to figure out how it all goes together. More pictures to come as the build progresses. Hopefully I have it done by next summer for the annual trip east to the OBX!
More pics! One half of the security team like to watch as I'm doing things. Hubs mounted on wheel to show it clears the center cap. Got to build the axle and get it set up to be level with the Jeep. Tons of measuring coming! Fun stuff!
Thanks for the compliments guys. Got the sides welded in and took it for a spin. Got to figure out what lights to use then it will be ready to paint. I'll probably put a tent on it later but for now I'll just tote gear.
Anybody got a set of lights from a military trailer?

A little tinkering. Don't throw that old grill away! You can tell by the pictures attached here that I'm getting bored with the weather and I am getting cabin fever. I took the sides off the old grill and mounted them on the inside towards the back of the trailer. Now I have another sturdy table and another propane grill. I also have these where they can be removed and mounted on the opposite corners on the outside of the front of the trailer when I get somewhere and want to set up. I'm trying to make everything where it will "fasten" to the inside so I can basically store my junk in it and haul out at a moments notice if the notion hits me! LOL. Since winter is now here, I'll tinker with this thing all winter before I paint it! Keeps me busy and my wife appreciates that! LOL.
No new updates on the trailer as of 02/09/14. Just waiting on the weather to warm up so I can paint it! It is sitting in the shop with the Jeep as we speak. Been tinkering with other projects. Cargo basket for rear of Jeep has been occupying my time lately. Ordered some more Aluminum today so I could try something different. I'll post a thread when I get the bugs worked out.
Here it is with the 1st coat of Rustoleum Liner Spray on it. I put about three more coats on it. It turned out pretty good. It has a nice "rough" texture to it. I'm thinking about painting the the insets on the side with a silver color. Should I do it or leave it black? After it is all painted I'll put it together, mount the Rubicon wheels back on and use it!
Can someone Photoshop what the sides would look like silver?
