    fill this out, take it and some $ to the DMV: http://www.colorado.gov/cs/Satellite...&ssbinary=true

    Last time I did that I had a crappy kit trailer from Harbor Freight. I tried to register it with the receipt from buying the kit, and the person told me it was worth more since I assembled it. I blew up at her, told her there was no ****ing way I was paying tax on my own labor. Supervisor came out, blah blah blah, I ended up telling them that I charged myself .735 cents per hour and had 11.435 hours in (0r something like that), do the math a-holes. It went on for a while, then other people started making fun of him, I finally paid tax on the receipt price.

    Jackie- I only meant the wheels and tires would match the Jeep!! The rest will be as ugly as it turns out, function over form!

    Brad- my tools are your tools if you need them for your bumper.

    For a homemade trailer you have to take it in for an inspection. There is an inspection station in Arvada (ish). I pulled mine in there, gave the guy some cash (cash only btw) and he signed the paper. Didn't really even look at the trailer. Then fill out a "statement of homemade trailer" form and take it, receipts for materials, form from inspection, and insurance card for towing vehicle into the DMV. It actually was far less painful than the internet world implied it would be.

    Thanks, Steve, I didn't realize it was a separate location for the inspection. Future headache averted.

    Got some time this week and got the frame finished. Added hangers and crossmembers, more grade 8 bolts, everything was primed by brush with oil based primer and undercoated.








    The top got painted and the rack got bolted on. It's a truck bed ladder rack from ebay, 79.88 to my door. The cross members are superstrut from Home Depot. The carrier will hold sleeping bags, pillows, jackets, towels, blankets, stuff like that.









    Painted red, that's as far as I got today.

    Sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen! I should probably finish #1 first!

    Got the springs in today, so far so good. I hope to find u bolts and plate steel this week, but probably won't have time to do anything. Fuggen work.

    Let me dig around some. I must have 50 different U-bolts in my garage. I think some of them are square shaped (not necessarily U-bolts then I guess) since Toyota used square bolts on their spring over axles. If I find some, they are yours if you want them.

    Found a set of 4. They are from a 2001 Tacoma. The plates for the Toyotas are rounded to fit the axle, so they likely won't work for you. The bolts themselves are approx 2-3/8" width and 4-1/2" to the threads. You are likely better off trying to just cut/drill some flat plate to make your own plates. Then you can make any width needed.

    Thank you for finding them, Jeff, but I'm afraid they won't work for me. The trailer axle is 2" square and the bolts go around it from the bottom up so I need 2" id, about 4-5" long. I appreciate the offer, thank you.

    Chris- deadline was the end of February. Not looking good!

    Deadlines exist only to be missed Paul, you'll have it ready to test on a trail by the end of June just in time for plenty of use.
