I wish I was half as talented as some of the folks on this forum.
What a cool project
|Yesterday 07:58 PM|
Spent a few minutes in the garage this morning. Used up a few things I had laying around...a caster wheel to help rolling it around while in the garage...probably won't help much in dirt or gravel due to its size. Added an old cargo net to the roof for storage and found another use for some quick fists that I bought a while back.

|Y-Guy||Love your build thread. I keep trying to find a decent one for a decent price. They sell fast or they are a pile of rust it seems like. Thanks for the info, hope I can use your information one of these days.|

Tired of never having a set place to keep my shovel on the 101 so I put a couple quick fists and hose clamps to use.

I think legally I need to have lights covered...it was an excuse to order something anyway.

I thought I would update this thread with a few little things I've added to the set-up. I have a hi lift that's about 2 years old but brand new because I never take it with me...I've never actually found myself in a situation that my winch or a shovel couldn't get me out of...anyway...these tubular mounts will work awesome when on trips and the hi lift is easily removed to be left in the garage when not needed.

I can't imagine a Jeep life style that wouldn't be upgraded by a similar personal "Jeep Trailer".....

I used the trailer a lot this summer and it worked like a charm, no leaks and it pulled great.
Added a few things to it...2 Kolpin fuel canisters for emergency and finally finished up the rack. The Kolpins were on sale for 30$/each and I was able to build the rack for 105$ (I had the basket from previous jeep).

|kwill||That is nice and the top rack looks perfect. How heavy is it?|

|Scrivah||That trailer is super sweet! Brings back what the Jeep is really about!|

|donmeca2020||looks good to me dude !!! i know thats a military type trailer. what do you plan on using it for? or is it just for shows and events ?|

Spent a few...well more than a few...hours painting the trailer. Por-15 the entire thing and then painted with a flat khaki camo. It doesn't match the jeep all that well but I'm not too concerned.

|JeeperJake||love the project!!!|

So I'm ready to get busy and paint in the next few days. I'm not looking to have the trailer match my JK exactly...more of military theme. I have an idea to do it in camo. Any one painted camo before and have any advice. I was thinking about this scheme with the brown being tan.

|krawdaddy||I want one of these so badly..|

My tail lights arrived. They were a bit of a pain to find a dealer who would ship them into Canada. They were also ridiculously expensive at 180$ for the pair.

|donmeca2020||looks neat dude !! im sure it'll come out great.|
|06-15-2013 10:31 PM|
Took my tie down hardware and other removables to a 'do it yourself' sandblasting. Cost me 20$ and everything turned out great.

I went with grey por-15 as I can paint directly on it without having to prime, this should help to not have the black show through. I think it may only come in grey or black with a gloss or flat option.
The steps are to soak trailer for 15 minutes with the ready prep and then rinse well. Dry and then apply the por-15 with a brush. Apparently 1 quart will go along way but I bought 2 just in case with the option to return the unused one.
I guess the trick is to paint while the por-15 is still wet to assist with a bond. Otherwise you have to sand and clean if you allow it to dry. This por-15 dries very hard and creates a great seal allowing nothing in or out (rust).
