Not bad. Were you able to retain the stock parking brake somehow?

its all still there.. I haven't removed any of the brakes YET... The local junk man just crushed everything so i have to wait a little wile before i can look for something like a compact car emergency brake handle or something like that... .. I just put on a jack w/ the wheel on it, so its gonna need a set of brakes... even if the brakes turn out to be a set of chocks..LOL ;D

Did you happen to retain the stock gas tank that was on the truck originally before you trailerized it? If it's still there you can use it as a spare gas tank if you were to put an electric pump on it and hook up some flexible fuel line between your RC and trailer. That might help if you take it on extended trips.

its not a great picture but it looks good. just lower it down even and that extra tank idea sounds helpful but pretty dangerous. if someone crashed into the trailer tongue it would prolly rupture that line and blow up.

2wd or 4wd truck u made the trailer from? if its 4 just yank out the stock blocks and get some low profile tires and its would be fine, just like lowering a trucks ass end. just measure both rear fender lips to keep it fairly even, and i want to do it to mine just use a stepside. oh better yet!
take a shortbed 80s P/U, chop it in half like u did, do all the same back end mods (roll pan, shaved tails, led tails) as on my RC, then narrow the bed and add dually fenders (not the puney style, the big style). and just smooth out the inner bed sides to not have the wheel wells any more. think it sounds like a time useful idea?

The truck i made the trailer from was a 2 wd. I would like to at least paint the R/C & trailer the same color.... thats about all the plans i have for now besides finding a set of 2 turbins (big pattern) and low pro tires... Your idea sounds like it would be a one-of-a-kind....lol... If ya got that much time.. go for it... ;D

An idea on the parkign brake. Use a van parking brake handle. mount it on the tongue. That way just pull the handle and brakes are applied. :) Nice trailer, would be cool with a topper on it also.
