My Truck and custom built stainless Trailer

Heres some pics of my Truck and Trailer. The trailer my dad built, he had always wanted to build one. It is a 5x10, works good for me know but I may get a bigger one next year. It is all stainless(he got the angle from some one he knows for free) The mesh on the gate is galvanized. I had to put a lift asisst on because the mesh was so heavy. I bought my Truck in Feb 07, paid for myself, along with all my equipment which is soon to come. Heres a whole bunch of pics:

Nice Truck/trailer. That thing has alot of miles on it! especially for the year. i only have 117 and mines a 98. That trailer looks overloaded allready, even without everything on it. You should have went with the tandem axels.

Thanks, ya it is alot of miles I think they were all highway though. Actually the trailer is not as heavy as it looks. Springs are fine. I have hauled a few pretty heavy steel beams and such to the scrap yard no problem
