I have been back and forth to do a bumper or not. I decided to make one, I'm glad I did it came out looking good. The flush mount red ID marker lights
look sweet.Also put on weld on shackles 11,000 pound rating. If you never
been to state trailer, I recommend that you do they have so many trailer building accessories got some weld on jack there .

The trailer is done with the final photo’s being posted. Thanks to everyone who chimed in, also John thank you for your solid input and wealth of knowledge you give back to the community. IT’s been a journey and so happy the build is coming to an end. Won’t be long ice will be coming off the trout lakes and my hard work is going to finally pay off when I launch my boat into a lake.


Was able to wire all the tail and marker lights in the frame so no wires showing except on the hitch .



Right after the lights were wired up made my appointment with MVD to get my vin number. The woman did not check one thing on the trailer other than the size, weight and receipts for materials used for the build.Did not even check if the lights worked. I got my vin and lifetime plate was a good day.



Thirteen cans of primer it took for the whole trailer.




Truck bed spray liner on the whole bed of trailer and under frame, axle and leaf springs.




Final color was called nutmeg, rattle canned the whole trailer it really sucked. decided I wanted my cooler on the hitch and not a tool box.I made a bug sprayer shower for $15 bucks.



A picture with the lights on.




I took the trailer for a test drive to the sportsman expo at westworld 60 mile round trip .Trailer tracked and handled awesome with no sway at all.

SO AWESOME!

That's a major project completed! Congratulations!

The trout decal was a great finishing touch, btw.

There's only one thing left.

Is jb weld really as strong as if I just welded them on with my welder?

Could be stronger it all depends on how you weld

I do like yours better than the XV-3 Neenah, WI design from what I've seen.

Hopefully, you make it a serious consideration for production. What would hold you back ?

SEMA exposure?

I made a cheep cover out of plywood foam and a digital pattern tarp,It is held on with heavy duty outdoor Velcro. When I need an open trailer just pull it off




I just got back from big lake caught more trout than I could count, Still snow on the ground.The trailer has been awesome,It puts a big smile on my face every time I hook it up to the FJ.
