I have been working on a winter project. Back story is I ended up with a complete ST bed a few years ago. Almost sold part of it to Koda a few years back for his ST. I had several different ideas for it but finally decided to build a trailer. I found a old trailer on CL, friend gave me a tool box, traded for an axle and bought some new items. I had some ST wheels and got 3 Good Year 265/75/16's off CL. Don't have much in it as I am sure it is not worth much, but it has been a fun project. Not fully done yet but getting close. Still want to paint it, add a spare tire underneath and a few other things. The first picture is before assembly with the little axle and tires. Second picture is with bigger axle and tires. Third is after I flipped the axle to get more clearance for the tires. Then behind the ST, with my smaller street tires. I will update as changes happen, now that the grass is growing it will get less time.

Hmm, I have a complete spare bed, an old trailer frame, a tool box, and a couple of hard covers. My trailer frame probably close to the right width, but it makes a 4x8 trailer so I'd have to shorten it. I don't think I'll do it, but it's something to think about. I'll be watching!
