ramps slide out the back. i think they are 5 feet long. that way i don't have to carry them from the side of the trailer. i wasn't too worried about the dovetail; if my rigs can't climb on the trailer, i have no business taking them to play on the rocks.
the fenders are supposedly dropped 3 inches to make it easier to drive over. they are supposed to be heavy duty, i guess we will find out after i drive over them a few times. i might go ahead and reinforce them with some angle iron just in case.
i bought the shackles at tractor supply and took them to them to weld on while they were fabricating the trailer. i will probably weld some smaller ones on the sides to have more anchor points.
the taillights are tucked up ender the trailer and the clearance lights are also tucked up under.
i want to make sure all the wiring is protected under the trailer and i have a tongue box for the front and a winch to mount on it.

and as you can see in the pic, i still haven't fixed the dodge yet. i did get a bed for it, got lucky and got a white one from a body shop here in lubbock that is in excellent shape. i also picked up a set of ranch hand bumpers for it and when i get the bed rhino lined i am going to get the bumpers done also.

That is saying something. That hill is a monster. Especially towing anything. Congrats on the whole setup.

I like the deck setup. Your going to bend the d-ring with them mounted like that.

Hey for that price.
What:
Axles pds
Brakes
Hitch
Jack

the d-rings are rated to 20,000 pounds. if they do bend, i will try something different.

the axles are the 3500 pound axles; my buggy only weighs 3200 and my tj and cherokee are not much more. when/if i ever get my truggy finished, i hope to have a gooseneck by that time.

one brake axle

hitch is a bulldog type hitch; i say type because the company that makes it is being sued by bulldog for copying their design.

i must say i am a little disappointed in the jack; i was hoping for a heavier duty one like is on the other trailers he makes; however it does work and raises the trailer up and down.

now to get the tongue box mounted and the winch and battery put on it and get the straps done like i want.

I've seen that on several car hauler trailers. They put the cheapest jack ever made on the front as if the weight of the empty trailer is all they'll ever need to lift. Don't know if they make something like it for a bumper-pull, but I love my 2 speed jack on the GN.

Ya i spent a few more bucks and got a 10,000 jack with the pinned foot that i can lower or raise. I had a 95 12v 1ton dulley on my trailer and it raise pretty eazy for that kind of weight.
