    Cool looking build. I started mine with a M116a3 1 ton trailer and I am now contemplating a total tear down and restart. It was too big to start with so after cropping the frame I now have to move axles and revamp the brakes. . I would have been much better off going the route you did.

    I have that trailer too. I haven't started yet, so reading this will make me think it over.

    I was thinking it might be good to go to camp, but not for a trail trailer. Then again, I think, if it's too big for a trail, what's the point.

    I like the full width, high clearance axle. I cropped about 1.5' off of the frame leaving just enough room that I could load a quad on the deck, but that caused tongue weight issues. If I had to start again I would start with a 416 or go with a kit like this.

    Well here are some updates, the trailer is completely finished and is ready to go for paint and powder-coat. I finished up the threaded inserts that will hold my bicycle carrier and spare tire, there’s 8 of them in the frame. Finished up the removable tongue and got the holes for the lights drilled

    NIce build. How much do you think it is going to weigh? It looks like it is tough enough to haul a bulldozer.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
