I just want Geno to think before buying. The 140 is a bit more expensive then some of the others, but it's worth it in the long run.

Nice finish to trailers, I have some of those same type of ramp panels, I bet I can make some decent ramps out of them. Those look pretty nice.

I like it!!!

Well done Kenny, those stray Gts don't stand much of a chance out there on their own now. Thanks for sharing the project

I went to the scrap yard today and found some metal to use for the ramp storage doors. Going up tomorrow and see about getting them on, I have to raise the tail lights for this to work, but I wanted them higher any way. Kind of hidden down where they are, I'm also going to set up for the front marker lights. And, if there is time, set up for the winch mount.

I may get energetic this summer and paint it.

Trailer looks good Kenny! Better come up with a way to lock those ramps up... some crackhead will steal them. Ask me how I know :wallbanging:

I got the tail lights raised up and the ramp storage doors on. Didn't get pics as it was near dark before I finished. The doors are 3" X 1/4" X 24". They have a hinge on one end and a slot to go over a tab. I have a hole in the tab for locks, just need to pick up a couple good locks for it. Also got the tabs made up/welded on for the front marker lights, but no time to wire the lights in. I need to get 4 small (1/8") bolts to attach the lights with. We didn't get to the winch mount.

The tail lights are more visible now in the raised position. I want folks behind me to know what I'm doing. I may go back up over the weekend and do more, just depends on the weather.

That's a sweet setup Kenny. You'll be able to fetch any number of GT's and attachments in one load.

Kenny my 16ft tandum trailer came with yellow marker lights on top of the fenders. It is nice to be driving down the road at night and be able to look in my rear view mirror and see them in the dark.

Looks great Kenny.

Don't worry about the paint, I'll do that when I get it home.

If you could just get that winch on yet before I pick it up, that'd be

great. :wave:

I may get partially involved in helping Aaron with a trailer rehab venture. He traded a 4-wheeler for a landscape trailer that needs a little TLC. Hopes to fix and sell it and start picking up trailers like mine was for rehab. Basically, buy bent/broken ones, fix and sell. Sounds like it could be a fun thing to do when weather warms a bit. We can get my trailer in his shop (with a wood stove he built). So if they aren't larger than mine, weather won't be much of a problem. Biggest issue with getting them in there is the width. Mine is 8' wide and has room through the door. An 8'6" wide could be tight! We'll see how it goes with this one. His Dad has been doing this for a while and has property right next to 169 Hwy (four lane, lots of traffic) to set them out on.

I brought home one of the 3/8" plates the other day. It will be used to mount the winch onto. I got the holes drilled for the winch to mount. I hope to go up tomorrow and get the plate mounted to the trailer. Then get the marker lights hooked up and repack wheel bearings. After that, it should be road worthy.

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!
