Re: examples of homemade Jeep trailers...
Trailers are a peculiar animal, everyone wants one (for next to nothin') they always seem to be be grossly over loaded(with out brakes) and religiously have sh!tty tires on them.
So having said that, are you building a custom/specific purpose trailer? Or would a standard 4x8/ or 5x10 work? Most of the time people buy a used one or build one only to find out that they could have bought a new one cheaper! Trailer manufacturers today buy steel,axles,and misc. parts by the trailer load, so it is hard to buy everything you need individually and build it cheaper.
Take into consideration: angle iron, axle/with/without brakes, tounge material, tounge jack, safety chain, lighting, wiring harness, wheels and tires, springs/shackles, fenders, flooring, tailgate/ramps, state inspection and title, all these things go into building your trailer not counting : your "uninterupted time", space and cash out lay for the material.
Please don't get me wrong here but you have to consider all of these facts when building your first trailer. Some people are better off buying their first one and adding some personal touches to it after you use and determine what it needs(kinda like your Jeep!) then go from there.
I'll try to get some pictures of a few different trailers we have if you do decide to build your own.
Hope this helps
