    A Southern M416

    Fantastic!!! I really like what you did to the trailer! For my part, I have 95% finished with the frame and currently just staring at the tub (ha!). The tub on my trailer is is much worse shape than yours. I hope to get started on it next week. I really like the tailgate and the lid!!

    My M416 Build Attemp

    The weather has been decent, and with the COVID-19 lock down in place I was able to start some work on the trailer. I took the axle and the springs off the frame and worked on cleaning it. Using an angle grinder and 4-1/2 strip&Clean Discs I was able to clean the frame. Next is to to work on...

    Factory M416 lights

    @blu76bronco I am think @A Southern Gentleman would be able to help you with this. I was going to ask the same question. I do like the original tail lights but they are in bad shape. MidwestMilitary.com carries repair kits and harness.

    A Southern M416

    @A Southern Gentleman The trailer is coming together nicely!! Well done! If I may ask, where do you source the nuts and bolts? Is there a place I can order a set of different sizes for the M416 or just purchase one by one from a local hardware store?

    On my M416, here's what the previous owner did to keep the rear sides from being flexible. He welded a pretty thick slab of metal from the tub to the rear loop that's attached to the frame. (see the red circles).

    My M416 Build Attemp

    After purchasing a JL last November, I developed a bug for a Jeep trailer. After a few months of scouting Craigslist, I was able to get an M416 at a fair price and in a semi-decent shape; it tows well but the prior cut tailgate and the tub really rusted out. The usual plan; tear it down...

    @Digglesby @Flyfishjeep please help! 😃 As I mentioned earlier, phase I, separating the frame from the tub was already kicking my butt. How many bolts are there to separate the tub from the frame? I only see 5; three on each cross bar on the bottom and one on each side up towards the front...

    I hope so too! I see that you replaced the floor with diamond plate? Did you have to cut the original floor out first and welded the diamond plate in?

    Great buy! With the same price mine was in a worse shape!! I am looking for inspirations, and very interested to see what you have done with it!!
