    Re: Boostinjdm's Trailers

    sitting on temporary wheels. Speaking of which, who has a good online source for wheel/tire combo's? I would really like to go with 225/75/15's because of their 2250lb capacity. I thought I found a place online a while back that had them for like $103 plus $7 each shipping. For a total of $110 ea. to my door. I can't seem to find them now. That's a better deal than going to my local Menards and getting 205/75/15's for $99 + tax and only having 1820lb capacity.

    $85-91 per tire ok? These are Load rated D trailer tires by Goodyear.

    Tires: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Sizes....arathon+Radial
    Specs: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Spec.j...irePageLocQty=

    Looks like the 225 Load range D = 2540 lbs at 65 psi max load. Load range C = 2150 lbs at 50 psi max load

    Thanks, but I believe those are tires only. I need four rims also. So I am looking for rim/tire combo's.

    RATS, missed the wheel request. Maybe a local salvage yard has 4 matched wheels? Or a local U-Haul might have some tires that would work?

    Re: Boostinjdm's Trailers

    I'm hell bent on new. If I have to pay more I will, but I seem to remember that when I was broke, I found a place to get wheel/tire combo's for $3 more shipped to my door than I could get them if I went to menards. Plus they were a heavier tire on a wider rim. Now I have the money and can't find it. I should've bookmarked it.... Ain't that how it goes though.

    Re: Boostinjdm's Trailers

    I've been putting it off, but now I have to decide what to do with the bed. Three choices. Flat bed, steel sides, or side rail. I already have the sheet for the floor. If I go flat bed then all I have to do is weld the floor down and add stake pockets. If I go steel sides then I have to purchase material and get it bent for the sides, as well as make some sort of tail gate. If I go with a side rail then I have to purchase material for those.

    I'm kinda leaning towards steel sides. Towing will suffer, but I will be able to haul loose stuff without it falling out and I could make a vinyl cover. Flat bed would be easier to strap stuff down using the stake pockets, but won't hold loose stuff well. The bed also wouldn't be as stiff, but I'm not sure I'll have any problems there. ;D I could always add wood sides to the flatbed, but then my buggy won't fit. The trailer will mainly be used to haul things that can be strapped down like tools, toys, and material. Secondary use will be for scrap, debri, and dirt.

    What do you guys think?

    The primary reason for having a "dump" trailer is to dump stuff. This could include everything from sand to debris. You know what you have to do already, build the steel sides.

    Re: Boostinjdm's Trailers

    A little progress today. Had to take a break and earn some money though. I've still got to mount my circuit breaker, wireless brain box, and winch relays. to this plate.

    Anybody here tried a wireless winch control? I can't make up my mind on which brand to get. I like the super winch ones because of the remote mounted antenae, but part of me just wants to buy a cheapy. I'll be within 25ft when using it, so range isn't real important. If it has an integral antenae, it will have to transmit through 1/8" steel though.

    Jim,

    The wireless winches have slight delay...If you need precision work, don't use them. Otherwise, they work great.

    New progress. I get a little time here and there. Superwinch wireless control should be here monday. The unit claims "no delay", but it was backordered, go figure... Here's some pics of the progress.

    Very nice! How did you bend the lips on the bed, or are they preformed?

    +1 that looks like a single piece. At first I thought you bought come channel, cut it, and welded it to the long sides of the trailer, but i don't see any weld marks........

    Amazing.

    Any links to the wireless controller?

    I like that idea for adding to my dump trailer.

    Re: Boostinjdm's Trailers

    The sides are 12ga cold rolled. I had a welding shop bend the lip in thier brake and then I pieced in the corners. As far as I'm concerned, that's the only way to go. Took them about an hour and cost me about $125 for the bending. Material was a little over $200.

    Here's a link to the wireless control. Try it at your own risk. I'm pretty sure it will work, but don't know till I get mine installed. Also, check inventory before ordering. I ordered mine on 11/12 and won't get it until 11/30.

The stamped steel will actually have to seriously deform for it to come off the ball. I did play around with it for awhile taking it apart and such so I could understand how it worked.
    Hi, just wondering what that ball hitch is rated at. I know the ones they have buy me which appear similar are only good for 5,000 gvw .,. The Bulldog with 2" ball by me is good for 7,000.. I have even seen some homemade trailers that have a 3,500 gvw hitch on them . Yours are awesome looking. Super workmanship. Nothing better then saying, I MADE IT! PLUS, you know it ain't gonna fall apart either . Especially with that MILLER sitting there. Nice job. BOB

    The coupler I used is for a 2 5/16" ball and good for 10,000 lbs in case I want to go with heavier axles in the future. Sorry Brendon, I forgot the link earlier. Here it is.

    Re: Boostinjdm's Trailers

    Well, box is mounted, winch is mounted, new wheels/tires are mounted. Little more left, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I couldn't take it anymore and cheaped out on the tires. Menards $99 each for wheel and tire. The way I understand it, bias ply tires handle bumps and rough terrain better without doing damage to the tires. Maybe I'm just trying to convince myself the cheapies are better...
