    Outstanding build! I love the fact that it is still a "utility" trailer.

    What do you use for a mattress/sleeping pad? Do you have storage for them worked out when the bed is folded away?

    I really don't think those air shocks are the solution to your problems. Air shocks will only band-aid the existing problem, and overstress your shock mounts (that were never designed to carry that...

    Pretty sure you have 16" rims, so I'd go for the 265s, simply to reuse the factory wheels. I'll snap a pic of my truck with the 265s for you. Sorry, I don't actually know what the backspacing is on...
