Re: M105A2 Trailer

Typically towed behind a Deuce n' Half or 5-Ton, tires match the Deuce n' Half.

I tried to find specs... like weight... but couldn't.

Darn near as big as your TJ and the hitch ring would be about the top of your tailgate to make it sit level.

Spent quite a bit of time dragging one of those around with a Deuce n' Half, dual 10KW Generator configuration.

Guess you could rework the axles for smaller tires and the tongue for a ball hitch (lower).

Hope it doesn't make you do wheelies after every bump in the road, it's pretty hard to steer that way.

Just thinking out loud here....

Re: M105A2 Trailer

Hmmmmmmm.. thinking out loud huh? Is tha why people always look at me funny when I'm at the parts or hardware store? [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I've kinda noticed the M105A2 trailers as well. I figure that if they were as light and easy to modify/tow as the others they would sell for much more than what I've been seeing them go for. But if your up for a challenge, and can find one dirt cheap who knows. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
