Ok, it looks like a trailer build is back on!

Amongst a massive trade and ending up with just shy of 3 pallets of Hummer wheels I also ended up with a 1992 M116A3 flatbed utility trailer. when the trailer was first offered i thought I should see what the wife thinks. I talked with her and showed her some pics and she said "yep, let's get it" so here it is.

In many ways I will miss the first one I built because I built that from scratch with my own two hands. This one has its benefits though.

1. its mostly built first off.
2. It has the 8x6.5 8 lug bolt pattern that will be the same as the Mules once i do the axle swap.
3. It has function parking brakes
4. it was the same track width as the Mule.
5. its already wired just have to change bulbs to 12V
6. it already has proper size fenders.

Right now I have no exact plans to share. I have officially created way too many projects so this one may get put to the side for a while.

Kind of yeah because I built it from nothing but this one already has its benifits.

I took and adapted the military trailer harness socket and cover to my existing 30 amp towing harness, 12 volt bulbs and its road ready.

 

Mine is a 2004 Kaiser M101a3/M116 out of Fort Sill OK.

Well, I was after the original bidder and paid $xxxx FRN's & trade for it in excellent shape w/all the goodies and run-flats model year 2004 which I think is a good deal as older beat up ones are selling for same or more $$$$. IMHO 1/2 to 1/3rd the price I paid is less that a custom one and I get to do it like I like it! Only time I really notice I'm towing it is when I look in the rear-view mirror and when loaded a vehicle w/3.42 final gear set can tow it w/o problems however I use 4.10.

 

Already welded a 3.7k gen-set to the frame, wiring with AGM house battery and solar panels
