The MJ Trailer Project started out with a trade. We traded some wheels and tires that were
originally off the 1998 Jeep TJ Project. It was a great trade. We’ve always wanted to build a Jeep trailer. The trailer was solid, had the existing tail lights and denote tires on it.
After the trade the Jeep sat for a good 8 months. Other projects and work seemed to take up the priority list. Summer came and we decided to get s a few kayaks, and we needed some way to tow
them around. The MJ Trailer seemed like the perfect fit.
Here’s what we did
- grind and blast all the surface rust off the boat tounge
- added a bumper to the rear
- wired the stock taillights to a flat 4 trailer adapter
- gave the frame and the body a paint job with Black Hammered paint
- added wheel adapters and JK Rubicon wheels, 5 on 5.5, to match the 1998 TJ Project
- added a $249 truck bed ladder rack system from Home Depot
- added some kayak mounts to the ladder rack. A drill and some hardware from Ace made it a custom install
