I'm thinking this old trailer has some serious potential.

Not sure about the tire replacement cost, but with a little TLC, I'm thinking this would look bad ass rolling behind an fj.

It would look cool, but couldn't haul much @ 3,590lbs empty.

Vader girl stay away from that model, it's intended to be pulled behind a big 6x6 truck. The M1101 is for behind a hummer but is aluminum and thus lighter. My m100 is 1,800# loaded and climbing hills I can tell it's there.

3590 pounds just frankly doesnt make sense. I wonder if thats the GVWR, or just a flat out error.

Thanks for the advice!

I'll have to remember the m100, is the one to look for-

The M416 is the American version of that. THe M100, the Nato/Canadian one. They are particularly hard to put your hands on. But not impossible:

M100:


M416:


See the difference? Other than the fenders,.Me either....


Here's my highly modified (By progolfer_20) one. Another difference is the triangle reflectors on the M100.

Cool pic

Is that a big tent on top of the trailer?

Nice job with the mods-

By the way, the link you posted set off an avast malware alert when I clicked it.

That's Total GVW for a M101A1. They weight closer to 1300 empty. I have a M101A3 that's been refurbished that is for sale.
