Tim I just want to know when your going to lift his TJ to match the trailer

I like the trailer(minus the color) I wanted to buy Lowlocks when he was selling it last fall....but had to save the money for the ZJ build.

If anyone is interested in the torsion axles Tim used, which I sold to the trailer owner. I am a dealer for them if you want some for a similar project.

Great price and drop shipped to your door!

Yea, the rollers he put on were 100 pound or less rollers....we put heavier...either 300 or 500...can't remember...rollers. I don't know how long those will last but they have to last longer then the other ones did. It came in with only 1 of them on and it was mashed to almost nothing and only held on by one bolt.

As far as the wires, where everything was mounting there was a lot of welding, so much of it had to be pulled to avoid burning it up. And in the rear, the wires crossed over the rear crossmember and we installed a length of receiver tube from the front of the trailer all the way to the rear and welded in a 2 inch receiver. Oh, and the wires weren't run in tubing under the trailer, they were in the standard black plastic loom. There is tubing inside of the trailer though for the wires.

Oh, and I fixed the pics....again.

Gotcha. Yeah, I just knew about the tubing in the lid.

Those rollers he put on WERE pretty cheesy.

He said the rollers cost him 4 bucks at tractor supply.:tonka: He asked me...ya think we should put heavier ones on there?

I wanted the kind that are on the back of motor homes...you might even have them on yours Jim...not sure....but they aren't rollers, they are a captured ball rollie thing. They have a way higher weight rating and a re lower profile. I just couldn't find any around here.

No, I don't have any on my motorhome. Just a big ass trailer hitch that digs into everything.
