My bad, I was thinking of something else.
But add some springs and cable to a trailer mate and you could have something new!:hammerhead:

I think you mean 129.00, and that is from Rack'Em. I got that lift and am very satisfied with it. Definitely worth the $.

No, the OP is talking about the trailer storage box made by jungle jims, not a gate assist.

Find a local welding service and have them build you a box for the front of your trailer. I love my J.J. racks, but from the looks of the trailer-mate pictures they aren't built very well.

I actually have a rack on my trailer very similar to the one you are looking for. I contacted my local high school and had one built by the students. They just had me pay for materials. Programs like that are looking for the kids to get real experience and are often times willing to do projects for outsiders. That way it will also be custom made to your specs. Total cost for mine was $84.

maybe that will help more than my first idea.:laugh:
