I posted this over in JKOwners, but for those that don't get over there, I wanted to post this here too...

So I finally got started on my trailer build this weekend.  It's a basic 4'x8' trailer with 12" sides. The top rail is 1" angle. The side posts are 1.25" angle. Both about 1/8" thick. 13" wheels on 5x4.5" hubs.

The bottom frame is 2" x 3/16" angle and the floor is diamond plate. I think it's 14 gauge. It's a little thin, but the trailer came this way for $500 bucks so I can't complain too much.

as I bough it, about 15" deck height

I picked up a 3500lb 66" underslung axle from Northern Tool for about $87. I bought 5x5" hubs online for another $56 delivered, and 2-3/8" ubolt kit for another $18. So about $161.00. Had to move the spring perches in a bit.   The wheels are jegs 17x8 steelies with 4" backspacing - $150 delivered for both.  Tires are 315/70r17 spares I had in the garage - $20 mounting & balancing for both. So here's where I'm at with $831.00 into the trailer... about 25" deck height

About 1-1/8" clearance. Once I raise the top rail up to 21" to match the tailgate/ramp, I'll have about 2" clearance.

I'll get some pics of it behind the jeep in this weekend.  I'll be cutting off the side posts and replacing with 1"x2" x 1/8" rectangular tube cut to about 20" long and the top rail will be replace with the same. Should give me a 21" height to match the tailgate. Not sure if I'll sheet the side or not.  Trying to keep cost down right now to keep the bank account and wife happy.

This looks intense, I wonder what happened to this build.
