    Box Rocket Homemade trailer build.

    Thanks for following along and I’m glad it’s given you a few ideas. I think hinges at the front will hold up just fine terms of strength. There are really just two factors to consider. First is it easier to access what you need to in the trailer with it hinges on the side or on the front...

    Post favorite pics of your rig and trailer

    Loaded weight of the trailer is 2000lb max. Typically less than that and closer to 1500lb. Yes the axle is a 3500lb axle, wouldn't go any smaller on a trailer that will get used offroad.

    WTB - Fridge slide with tilt - for Dometic CFX55IM

    I have a DFG Offroad Tilt slide. It's essentially brand new. Was in my truck for about two weeks then my wife surprised with with a MSA drop slide for my birthday. It fit my Snomaster 56D so it should fit your Dometic as well. $380+shipping. I'm in Utah. Fridge Slide by Adam Tolman, on Flickr

    Probably was me. I was headed home from SLC. Thanks for the compliment.

    I have been wanting a center console from Delta VS for a while and finally got one last week and was able to get it installed one evening this week. So much room inside. I might be looking into some smaller compartments to fit inside to organize things a little better. The quality is...

    Ah man! I almost bought that truck when it was recently for sale and I had similar plans for it. Congrats on the purchase. Brilliant minds think alike.

    Yeah they are definitely for offroad use. The road was empty in that last photo and I only had them on long enough to take the photo.

    This past weekend I replaced the brake booster since I was having signs of booster failure. I used a Seiken brake booster that I'm told is an OEM part. Pretty straight forward install and brake pedal feels much better. Untitled by Adam Tolman, on Flickr This coming weekend I'll be replacing...

    Most recent mod was some new lights. I've been searching for some lights to replace the three HIDs I have on the front bumper. I'm a big fan of the HID lights and the distance of the light throw. The ones I have are Hella lights and I've been really happy with them. They've been discontinued...

    I was looking for a better way to carry my maxtrax rather than on the roofrack. The roofrack is fine most of the time but if my tent is on the roof there just isn't room for the maxtrax. So I modified my driverside swingout on the rear bumper. This required relocating the fuel can carrier...

    Next was something really simple. Will work for some, others may not like it. A driver armrest is something that many wish the 80 had. The position of the center console armrest isn't ideal and you have to lean over a bit to use it. I welded up a simple post that is anchored to the floor...
