I'm surprised there aren't more mesh sides, at least 2ft high and tool boxes on the tongues and ladder racks. My trailers also get guards arounds the tail lights. I also put gorilla lifts on. Usually only needed one per trailer but it sure beats lifting that gate 20 times a day or worse when you catch your kneecap on the up swing. I also recommend a spare if you can fit it, sucks when it blows and your stuck far from help.
Turbo oil filled hubs also help ensure your bearings are lubed on your non braked axles. A quick glance and good to go.

I'm looking to change around the layout of the racks and add a box and some other things. Not sure direction I want to head in so I'm looking for ideas

What do you have? What exactly do you want? Why? The only racks I have is the 3 place trimmer trap. Would like to add a rack for my BP blower though I'm not probably going to do that until I move to an enclosed trailer. At that point I will also get Greentouch Extreme trimmer racks, they're far superior to anything else out there. A lot of times the big cages on the front of the trailer don't to much but add a **** ton of tongue weight.

I'm looking mainly for ideas for my 5x12 as far as where people have mounted trimmer racks and blower racks and how they have loaded their equipment and vice versa. Just seeing what people have done.

I like the diamond plate on your fenders KS. I was going to put some grip tape on the areas that get stepped on a lot not only for protecting the finish but when its wet to avoid slips and falls.
