    thought i'd post a pic of my new tailgate assist i made over the weekend. it is about 3ft long due to the limited trailer space from the various racks and mower attachments i've made on the trailer.

    heres a couple more pics of the trailer.


    I built the assist with 2 1/2'' square tubing with a 15'' spring inside. It costed me aroumd $50.00 after i bought some stuff that i thought i was gonna use but didnt.

    first there is the dethatcher(orange), then my gas can holder, then the trimmertrap bin.
    I made the gas holder and dethatcher.
