Some of the things about the trailer. Purchased a M416 wiring harness from TJ Murry for $25. Floor from Midwest military.  M416 Tail lights, Tires from summit. Paint is Ford red-orange Chain covers from beachwood canvas. Liner is Raptor lining, used 8 bottles. Dissembled springs cleaned and rebanded with new straps . I think I bought them from Bassinger. Welded extra 1x1 tubing on the frame to keep the floor from sagging. This whole project took my a year and a half to complete. Mostly because the wife didn't notice the funds going out so much when parts are bought over a year and a half.  Thanks to Chuck  form AL for giving me the ambition to get going on it and everyone else who has posted info on this site and others for helping me complete this project. The guys with Jeeps foam at the mouth when they see it. No! its not for sale when they come up to me.
