No updates yet. I'm still working out the design. I toyed with the idea of making the box removable so I can still use the trailer for utility purposes as well. I just don't think it's gonna work that way.
I hoping to start building it soon though.
If you're not carrying heavy loads, or doing sharp, Rocky trails on a regular basis (where risk of sidewall punctures increase), an E rated tire is likely overkill, IMHO.
I have a set of Toyo At2s on my 03 xterra. They've been fantastic. They are at the end of their life though.
I will be...
Honestly, that was one of the biggest reasons I got my license. I actually operated without a license for about 2 years before getting it. My wife expressed interest in driving, and loved it. She said I needed to put a radio in the truck as well. I figured with two vehicles out on the trail, I...
I went gmrs for several reasons.
1. I have zero interest in amateur radio as a hobby
2. Much easier to obtain a license
3. Covers my entire family and both vehicles
4. Everyone I go with has gmrs capability
Let's go into these a bit more.
If I was interested in doing ham as a hobby, I...
Just got back from a two day test run with the trailer. Towed it behind my 2013 Frontier Pro-4x.
The combo towed beautifully. The trailer tracks perfectly behind the truck. I discovered that the tires are almost exactly as wide as the Frontier.
Without much weight in there, it's very bouncy...
I'm really bad at taking pictures while doing this stuff, but I took my new trailer (still in utility trailer configuration) out for a couple of days to get used to towing it, and to test it out.
I had it hooked up to my 2013 Frontier Pro-4x (the blue truck). My wife drove my 2003 Xterra (the...
I realize this is probably best practice, but when you helped me with my aux electrical system, we ran it from the secondary fuse block.
I've not noticed any noise in real world use so far.
Congrats on the 275! It's a great radio, and you'll be very happy with it. I have one in each rig.
Due to the cost of plywood (which I hadn't looked at prior to the initial design), I've decided to simplify the design.
I'm planning on having 3 doors. One on each side of the front, and a large rear access door.
Think similar to the smittybilt trailer.
Still planning on having a shower...
I'm not installing the Lokka myself. I was quoted about 400 to have it installed, and with the work required to drop the front diff, pull the carrier, make sure the backlash is correct, and all the other crap that could go wrong if I do it myself, that price is a no brainer to me.
As far as...
I've not updated my build thread in a while.
I replaced my Colorado with a 2013 Frontier pro4x. Leaving it stock for now. I might put a 2in lift on it next year and bump up to 33s.
Bought a trailer that I'm going to build into an expo trailer. The wife and I have been discussing our needs for...
Unlike SOME people, I won't post picture of my rig in your thread :laughing: (just giving ya'll a hard time!).
My rig is stock height, running stock 265/70r16 tires, and I've not found that to be a hindrance at all. I've rubbed the frame rails a couple of times, and that's it.
I'd say you're...
