Default Re: Building an Off Road Camp Trailer?

get a longer axle to put the tires outside the box. Helps with stability, get hubs with the same bolt pattern as the Ranger, then put same size tires on it. some fiberglass fenders and the before mentioned hitch. This is the cheapest and easiest, as you dont have to cut the floor. have one size tire for truck & trailer. (beats carrying two separate spares) get matching rims....just to look cool

Yup, was thinking the same thing. It's some kind of euro design, so no leafs. That makes it much easier

BTW it was a pleasure pulling it home. Used my explorer, which I intend to be my trailer rig.

Working on gathering parts, paint, vynals, and such for the rest of the build LOL. I use this as an everyday truck, but it's also the only truck I have for hunting and general off road fun. Hoping to make it much better than stock!
