    Could that support an RTT on top? I'm assuming 'no'.....

    Do you mind sharing approximately what you've spent to date?

    Looks awesome - keep it up!
    Thanks. I'm not sure if I would try a RTT without a little extra bracing. As far as my current investment, I'd probably say that there's about $3500 in it so far.

    NICE !! well done... just where is this trailer located...

    I've got a stalled LWB trailer build as well...
    The looseness is why I went to XJ springs... I relocated the spring hangers to accommodate the shorter springs...

    I'm glad you posted the build... sort of...

    Keep posting... I think...

    Man that trailer tuned out great! I am building one out of a four door XJ body. do you have any concerns with the way yours is going to handle on the highway? it seems to be very light. I am worried about wind gusts and especially driving passed those semi-s coming from the other direction. Have you had it on the highway much? Looks very cool behind your XJ nice set-up!

    Thanks. Mine handles great going down the highway. Just make sure you keep more weight forward of the axle in your design as well as when loading. One thing I may consider doing is adding a sway bar of some sort for on road to help keep it from rocking back and forth when it goes over a large bump. It hasn't ever gotten squirrelly on me, but it would help keep the circulation through my knuckles flowing a little better whenever I come upon any large bumps in the roads.
