What are you trying to say Julie? I mean, don't hold back. Tell us what you really think.

That is why I am leaning towards lift, axles and tires and of course paint.
I went over to the site you linked me. I couldn't get on their forum because I wasn't registered.

I've seen a trailer like this before somewhere...

Glad you got it home!

That thing looks sweet!

I'd like to change my vote. I think anything on 37"+ tires looks awesome... I think a turd on 37" tires would look great.

Whatever you decide to do will be cool and clean. Think how many 1969 Z28 camaro's were cut up into drag cars...they bring a good penny now....or so I am told.

The hood scoop is cool for sure.

I just dont think full widths and huge tires would look good.

I thinm standard width axles, maybe mid with, with 35"s or 37"s with trimming and a TT and clearancing for a big rigs amount of clearance would be sweet!

Then again, I think..

I really like the last pic. The TJ front end looks cool but I would stick with the Jeepster front.

Trailworthyfab.com Nick they will recenter Hummer wheels put a rock ring on it and the PVC insert to hold the bead on all at a reasonable price. Plus they deal in PBRs.

Those are the only two I could find. I was really hoping to find a build on it but no luck.
