    There's many threads on this subject which got me motivated to do mine.

    I just finished mine the other day. Still needs some paint.
    Mine was pretty simple since my trailer already used tubes for the top rails.
    I used one 160lb spring per side. Can lift with one finger now. Should of done this 5 years ago when I bought the trailer.

    Safety first.

    Here is the thread where I posted some pictures of the ez lift gate assist I made. I have used it for 3 years with no problem.


    Use only the best grade materials.

    I have the EZ-Gate on mine I think it was about $150.00 at the time. When I first got it I thought it was kind of "cheap" looking, but Im going on my fourth season with it and it still looks and works like brand new.

    Put on one side today. I went with the Square tube(kinda loud) and could only find garage pullys but it works and will be a lot better with the other side done.

    Post your pictures.

    I went with the square tube because it fit the top rail of my trailer perfectly and I could just bolt it on.

    You can get some good [safe] pullies at a hardware store.
