Just picked it yesterday on my way to work. It's in very good condition. Surface rust here and there, but not holes anywhere. It pulls really nice, but those NDT tires scream going down the road. I have some stock JK wheels with some ATs just like the ones on my teardrop that I can bolt on. I just need to swap hubs (if that's possible with the stock axle). I don't even know what bolt patter the stock hubs are. Anyone know?

Damn, nice job! I've been looking for one for years. Can't find anything descent for under $500.

They are pricey. I've wanted one for a while but couldn't justify the price. For 225 though I couldn't pass it up.

That trailer has a CJ wheel bolt pattern. JK wheels won't bolt on unless you change the axle. Looks like the parking brake is still there, and you would lose it if you change the axle. I have found that feature to be VERY useful.

Ive decided ill be keeping the stock wheels. They are just cool and I think JK wheels wouldn't look right. Parking brake is kind of cool too.

Ill be tearing it down sometime in the near furrier is clean all up and ill be removing the welded on ball hitch, making a bolt on receiver for my hitches, and maybe making some bolt on attachment to make carrying longer items easier.

I bet Shawn hates you right now. He's been wanting one on the cheap for a while.

If you have been wanting one for off road, the lunettes clunk and stuff, but they stay attached and allow the trailer to pivot around the lunette when greased properly. If you convert to a ball hitch, it will pop off after a certain angle. My ball hitch is connected to a pivot, and it still pops off at extreme angles. I wish I had a lunette. That said, I have used it on the trails around West Branch and it has not popped loose.

I plan on a similar setup to this eventually.

I loved mine. I put wheel adapters on it so I could use the same tires/wheels as my old YJ. I put a cj tailgate on it and an m416 cover. I took all my camping stuff and firewood to Silver Lake with that little trailer. Have fun with it.

Just dumb luck that I got this one.

It currently has a ghetto fab ball coupler welded right to the lunette. I want to remove that so the lunette is usable again. Then id like to unbolt that andmake a bolt on receiver tube to accept my 3 axis Max Coupler (no clunking) or easily swap to a ball hitch. I have the same setup on my Teardrop.

Id love a tailgate, but I just don't think I can bring myself to cutting it up considering its condition.
