i have always thought it would be cool to take a full size jeep, yank the engine, and turn the entire thing into a trailer to tow behind my jeep. But I am from California, so what do I know. haha

That does sound cool! Perhaps remove the windshield and frame, run half doors, and mount the hood to open forward, clam shell style. That could potentially have a lot of storage space, or perhaps a fold out tent where you would sleep in the "tub" part of the body. I think I'd like to see somebody actually do that!!

This one was built from the back half of an LJ and a YJ.





Most of the original side panels and inner fenders were removed, and replaced with new sheet metal, only the top edge of the original tubs was retained. The new inner fenders provided far more interior space than the huge Wrangler inner fenders. The red parts are from the LJ, the black parts from the YJ, the unpainted metal is new.

Sure, that is my 1948 Willys CJ 2A, It has been restored for nearly 15 years now, it spent most of its life on a ranch in Colorado, accounting for it retaining all of its original sheet metal. It also has a vintage Ramsey PTO driven winch. it is part of the family.

Thanks! What a GREAT Jeep! If I had a garage, I'd want one sitting next to my JK!! Awesome!!

M101CDN beefed up version of the M100 and M416 1/2ton Jeep trailors. There were @2,000 made in the 90's for the Canadian military and than Canada sold them all surplus. Was designed to be pulled by an Iltis 4x4. Has standard military tail lights. It is a great Jeep tailer. I replaced the Michilan military tires with Cooper non directional tires made from the original Firstone molds from WWII. Older picture of my trailer and Jeep:

I just realized after coming back into this thread you guys were talking about posting pics of REAL offroad-oriented Jeep trailers. I'm now embarassed after posting pics of my namby-pamby Coleman pop-up trailer with its skinny tires.

Jeep trailer. It even says Jeep on it!



My old basic utility trailer. Not off road worthy.

Dad and I built this a couple of years ago. We did a very stout frame and has multiple options for the hitch. Added steel wheels, 33 10.50x15 BFGs, and a 3500lb 5x4.5 axle. So far nothig has hardly scratched it.

We are planning out another that will be set up to carry water, propane,fuel, and spare parts along with some storage for permanent camping gear. Still working out the details on it..

Here's my effort. Bantam seen hard miles and a buncha mods before I got my hands on it. Cut a sheet of plywood in three pieces to fit the bevel and still access storage underneath, got all my kit out of the back of the heep and sleep pretty snug too with a memory foam pad. With the pintle it follows me anywhere and I gotta check to see if it's still behind. Got all of $750 in it.

Finally received our trailer 2 weeks ago. We ordered in April. We are going to take it for a test when we go visit family in California during Christmas. The tent comes with an annex that surround the portion where the ladder goes up. I just didn't have time to install last night before dark.

nickmimi, that's a great looking trailer. From the picture of your whole rig it looks like you need a ball mount that will raise the trailer tongue a couple inches more. You need the trailer to be level when you're towing it.

You are absolutely right. I noticed that after hooking it up. Thanks

It looks like a Sierra 4x4
Sierra 4×4 Trailers – Jeep & Off Road Trailers – Roof Top Tents and Overland Equipment

You may want to read up on them, there were quite a few threads on Expo about them taking money and cutting communications and not delivering the trailer. Although, the people that do have the trailers say they are of great quality, I think he just has bad customer service. Maybe he has gotten that taken care of though

It is a Sierra 4x4 trailer. The poster above is correct. The owner does not know how to communicate. We ordered in April with a delivery date of 8-12 weeks. We did not take delivery until 2 weeks ago. As far as I know, he has not delivered a trailer or taken anybody's money but he is very slow on delivering. If you are interested in buying one, don't plan on having it for at least a year and you will be happy or buy one that is already built.
