    After a major cleanup and driving the debris to the road I noticed that the lights on my trailer are in a very bad spot. One of them had already been chipped off from unloading.

    Does anyone make a light guard for trailers? I am sure someone can weld it for me I did not know if anyone made such a thing.

    Also who makes reasonable priced baskets for the front of the trailers? Anyone online?

    And also the best deals for trimmer traps?

    For the gaurds, go to a welding/fab shop and have them make something. I don't know off hand of any company that makes them specifically. But all the fab shop needs to do is bend a piece into sort of a "C" shape and weld it on. Shouldn't be too much $.

    For baskets you could ask the fab shop for a price to make one. There is a company called Buyers (try www.buyers.com) that makes them, but they only make one size. It's like $375 (or there abouts), but if they ship it, it would be high because of size and weight I would imagine. So a local shop might be cheaper, plus they can customize it however you want it.

    As far as trimmer racks, www.precoparts.com has a 3 trimmer holder for $69.
