M416 hybrid (updated w lots O' Pics)
I have been threatening to build a trailer for a while when this week I finially found a reason. This week I acquired a m416 tub that is solid and ready to become a trailer. I have the tub, axles, leaf springs and hangers but nothing else. Considering I paid $96 I'm not complaining about the little detail that I am missing a frame...
I am not worried about finding an original frame bc I like the idea of building my frame to my measurements and desires. This will allow me to do things like make a longer front section for a trailer tongue box or a max coulpler as well as add features i want. This will also let me save time by not having to hunt down an old frame.
So my first question on this build is thus...if building an m416 frame from scratch what would you use. I am thinking 2x2 square tubing. I want it to be heavy enough to withstand being used but light enough to pull behind a lifted jeep.
Also does anyone have exact measurements of an 416 frame? I could use that to start from.
