My credo
If you can't go through it or around it, then go over it.
good looking trailer........ looks like it needs about 3" of lift to match the ranger ;)

The pintle hook hitch would be overkill for this trailer, (it only weights 850 lbs). Their noisy too. A better bet would be a Treg hitch which is basicly a big poly universal joint. I considered using one but decided if the going got that rough I'd disconnect and leave the trailer on the trail.

This trailer has the same size tires/wheels as the Ranger. It uses the same bolt pattern. It has the same Ranger track. It uses Ranger leaf springs. It has all LED rubber mounted lights. It has bump stops and shocks. It has a High Lift jack mount. It has a full size spare mounted under it. It's made from square tubing.

damn, sounds like your trailer could take more of a beating than the ranger:icon_thumby:

You really carry enough gear to fill a trailer when you go wheelin?

that's cool! Although, when I click on the topic, I half expected a trailer made of a ranger box and rear frame!

awesome trailer though!
