Default My NEW custom Trailer for my Ranger

Traded an old boat trailer for a small 48" x 40" trailer frame with 16" tires. added 18" to the rear and 8 to front.moved the axle back 4",added 20" tires to help level the ride and built the shown cargo box outta 3/4" ply stained w/ black weather sealant.











----------

i just need a jack arm welded to the front and some weather seals round the doors.i wanted it to be light weight,strong,same height as truck cab for low wind resistance and built to accept the soon to be added cargo rack. my brother will give me a wider axle if needed then i can add 18"flat beds to both sides of the box.
anyone else built a trailer?

i also plan on a skid plate to protect the axle with ground lights.don't know if i'll get a design on it or leave it black.might toss the longhorn painting on the back doors or metal mulisha skulls.

wanted the weight of the tools off my truck bed so i can drive about for pleasure without unloading tools every weekend.did'nt wanna sell the bedslide either since it has no room under new bed cover.bed cost 800$

----------

took her out loaded, she rides smooth at 112km/h and on ramps.i take it easy when at work anyways.slow exelerations and easy braking.gotta take it easy on my truck when she's gettin paid to work.

----------

the bed pops out in seconds.no bolts,just drop pins.1800lb capacity. great for camping,bikes,motorcycles.easy load

that's a nice setup, i can agree not wanting to unload all that every weekend, i already help my dad do that with his van. i think i would make something for the front to make it more aerodynamic though, kinda like this

i am think bout it.at hwy speed now.my rpms are normal on the uphills and the drag is minimal.proper height for sure.thought bout slopin the front down and addin the side angles like yours. mayb i'll try a new wing design on the sides to eliminate any side sway that may occur.i have non now but its not storming out. the trailers narrow enuff to add vertical side mounted wings.i have a computer programmer where i can change shift points or set it to heavy tow.a cold air and beefed adjustable suspension
