I've been playing around in the styrene bin as Kev would say..
heres what I came up with. A military style trailer, I built the fenders flat on top so I could carry lots of stuff. It has no suspension but follows the truck nicely opon testing. :) I painted it with some leftover handrail paint lol

Would you look at that little door!!!

I thought that added alot to the look. I used the handles from the axial interior kit, there's one on both sides.

I was messing around in the parts bin and found two roof rack peices from a H3 New bright body, and thought they look like leaf springs.

I pulled off the solid cuttingboard axle, and mocked it up.

Shaved the hummer logo, cut off the bottom to make it flush. Drilled some holes about center :paranoid:

Screwed them down to the axle and hotglued them in place under the trailer, gave the undersidel a coat of mat black.
