    He built that him self? That looks nice... What would the materials for that cost? If we bought the materials, i could take the trailer to my school and have them weld it up...

    No, those were there when he bought the trailer..

    And I've got no idea what materials would cost, it wouldnt be hard though, just some angle and expanded metal..

    I'd save the time, unless you can weld, and just let that welding class do it. You've got another trailer right? If you did it in the dead of winter, you wouldnt have to worry about having another trailer unless you haul equipment to plow with..

    No, just our 16 footer, but we would wait till winter if we did... And no, we dont tote stuff around on this in the winter...

    Looks real good, I personally like to do brush clearing. Also, I wouldn't put wooden sides on either because we did with my grandpas trailer and in a couple days they warped bad. So do like Juinor said and go with expanded metal. Also, what truck are you going to put that V-Box in? Not the new Chevy I hope!

    Ok, not even treated wood? We are putting the salter in the 09, it is a WORK truck, not a show truck... We dont trash it, but we dont baby it... It was bought to WORK!

    Well, treated wood dosen't warp as quick if you seal it....but you can't seal new treated wood for a couple months:dizzy:....Haha thats an expensive truck to not baby! Also, on your avatar you have sweet rims on it...do you still have them on the 09' because they looked like the same one's on your brothers black chevy.

    Well, my bros truck has a 6 ft bed, so it wont fit. Also, those rims are the ones on his truck, we switch tires around a little. We dont plow with those, and we put them on the 09, but they rubbed a little, they are actualy on ebay, the rims and tires he has for his 99 are kinda crappy, so we are sellin the Mickey T's and gettin some all seasons...

    Oh, yea good eye too... Very observant.
