    Default Phase one complete!

    Final pics for now with the trailer and the JK. Towed it a couple hundred miles yesterday in some pretty good winds. Trailer tows like a dream. Thanks everyone for your help and input during the build.

    Give me the weekend. I saved everything and was going to put it all together anyways. The biggest expense were the tires and rims. My buddy had a lot of the metal for the build.

    Well I havn't done anything on my trailer for a few months other than use it. I can't believe how much stuff I can put in this thing. We have taken a couple trips to Northern Maine on vacation and the thing hauls great. I am hopefully going to add onto it this winter. Here are a couple pics on our trips.

    Question what axle WMS-to-WMS did you use for you 3 foot wide trailer. Also I assume you took into consideration wheel backspacing, tire width, and wheel spacer if used. Also how many inches between the tire and the tube? And what size fenders u get? I'm at this cross roads right now.

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    We made the axle to fit so it didn't matter how wide the trailer was. We built the trailer to the size I wanted then made the axle. I have no spacers and bought my hubs and spindles from etrailer.com . My fenders are 12" wide and 36" at the longest point. I have since cut them down a few inches and are around 32" now. Hope that helps.
