Sub'd for ideas for building my own. I have an idea of a 5x8 tailer for my Grizzly with a rack on top of it for a RTT. Wouldn't be an expo type trailer per say, but I'm just gathering ideas now.

Yeah I'm not fucking around on this thing. Figured I'm doing brakes (even though I'll be under the weight requirement), may as well do it right. I got an Engager breakaway kit (same one that's on my flatbed) with a 5 amp hour battery.

Did a preliminary suspension cycle with my current planned leaf setup.
With 33" tires:
Frame height at full droop will be roughly 27".
Frame height at full bump will be roughly 18.5".
My math gets a little fuzzy here, but I calculated a frame height on a fully loaded trailer (obviously based on weight) should be around 21-22".

For those two lazy to subtract that's 8.5" of travel (Was aiming for 9" but I'll take it).

Full droop:

Funny thing is...my trailer has more travel than the front of your truck. Just saying.

4 link would scare me on a trailer. I mean I was shooting for 9" cap on travel because of instability issues at speed. After all, a trailer is more of a 3 wheeler than a 4 wheeler. You sir....your balls must be hanging low.

It has shocks now, which control it a lot better. it also only has a 4 foot wide bed, but an axle as wide as the trucks. it still needs some work, but at 45-60 mph over rough terrain, it handles better than the truck.
