Re: The "Hope I get it done by WF Oh-Ten" thread

OK, as if I did not have enough going on at home/farm I have taken on a new project. I am going to pick up this weekend a 21' trailer that is a GN and has a small platform over the tongue. It appears to have beena camper of sorts, or the begining of a project at one time that wa abandoned. It has 2x8 main runners and decent cross bracing as well as brakes on the axles. I am going to do my best to reinforce the frame some more and deck it with 4x8 plate steel and then on the upper deck I am going to put plate steel on it and a small railing around it to haul coolers, tires parts etc. Now for teh grand daddy of the project, i am goingto see if I can mount a pop-up camper sideways across the front of the main deck. I know this was done on Xtreme4x4 blah blah blah, but I am doing it in the means of Xtreme Farm Fabrication The campers are 6'8" and the flat on the trailer is 21', so I should have just enough room on the deck that I can get the XJ and camper mounted up. So, now I need to get it home and start the basic frame supporting and then will move on to decking and then hope to have the camper on it by Winterfest. Wish me luck.....scratch that, I am guided by a force much greater then luck......

Cheeseman-OUT!

Get the ZJ HD one, it's only a few dollars more. It's tight getting it in but I think it's well worth it. I'll get a part # for you. JIM.

Re: The "Hope I get it done by WF Oh-Ten" thread

I'm going to hate myself for this as it's a lot of work, but...
Making a trip to Iron Rock Off-Road in a few weeks. I just may have a 5.5" long arm kit with me on the way back. Just bought a junkyard Dana 44 out of a waggy...so..

Gears/rear Detroit
rear axle swap
lift
34" LTB's

If I don't do it right away, I'm still fine with my 31" radial swampers and 3" Rough Country lift. I won't take it apart if I can't do it all at once. Sitting out/missing events due to vehicle tear downs sucks!

Re: The "Hope I get it done by WF Oh-Ten" thread

Project "try and make junk ass trailer work and look good" has met its demise already. Upon pulling the trailer out of the brush I looked under it more and the main runners/frame have rust holes through them. Not worth the effort to put into this project..so back to the drawing board.

Re: The "Hope I get it done by WF Oh-Ten" thread

I would suggest AGAINST the HD fan assembly. At least the one that sticks out further towards the radiator. Ask me how I know its a bad idea.

Or the factory replacement one from napa with the "radiator death tabs" that stick straight out.

Re: The "Hope I get it done by WF Oh-Ten" thread

it can be done...we are finishing a complete XJ makeover for Collin and between it being a stock craptastic rig 2 weeks ago, now it is lifted, has rear disc brakes installed, just received a new paint job and will be getting a few final touches in the coming week. Other then that, a decent build done in 3 weeks. Recruit some good friends and the sky (and your pocket book!) is the limit.....
