    Default Military Surplus Trailer for Jeep

    I wanted to add a trailer for the granddaddy’s Jeep build. I found this military version that I really liked and thought it would go well with it. This is what I got done while listening to football. Just a bit more to go and it will be finished.

    Awesome build like always. Is there a reason you put the spring shackle up front? The fixed mount on the front will give it a smoother ride, although it is just a trailer. lol

    Wasn’t paying attention and didn’t want to drill more holes. Figured it would t really matter much since it was a trailer, as you stated.

    Here are some update pics of the trailer. Still have a few details to add, but it’s pretty much done.

    Yeah, I was pretty nervous when I saw how big the motor, trans and servo covers turned out.

    Excellent add for the Willys. Turned out very cool. Did you make the hitch too? That's fantastic.

    Thanks, I was hoping it would work well. The hitch is from Axial and the coupler is from PushRod3D. They are working on one that is stronger and thinner. However, this one looks great to me already. Only coupler I have seen that actually looks like a coupler.
