Thanks, Brian! Not sure what the first load will be as yet! I do need to remember to check one tire tomorrow that has a slow leak. Might be something simple. I'll worry about strap storage later this Spring!

 

 

Kenny if you figure out the strap storage....let me know.....that is something I have tried and tried to find something I liked to put on the tongue to put the staps and binders in.....so far nothing I could afford or wanted....looking for a good idea to steal :thumbs:

Okay! Pics for you guys!

First 2 are the strap storage, This started out as a 15D X 20W X 20Tall. It is now only 12 tall.

Kenny, Really nice work there. You will be able to drag anything up on your trailer you want to now. I really like the locking plates on the ramps. Way to go Buddy!! :thumbs: :thumbs:

 

Can you remove the wench easily to store or is it bolted down?

It will be bolted down, but not that hard to remove and store in a safer environment!

Good call on going with the LED lighting,I've had zero lighting issues since converting my trailer to them.

 

I used butt connectors, but put heat shrink over them. Just need to get some good ring connectors for the ground wires to connect with.

soldered and heat shrink is the best

I have never had luck with butt connectors lasting very long

but it depends on what you have available and how fast you nee it operational....

that don't always work either

 

Man 10 pages/// I need to go back to the beginning and read it all.

 

I was gonna go over to "that other forum" and try to link the thread from over there so you guys can see mine  but it's a lil disappointing compared to this one, besides being only a single axle...
