Jlee's BAMF expo trailer build

Seeing how this build is about to start "need to have it road worthy for MOAB" I figured I should start a build thread.
This is going to be over the next 7 or 8 weekends as I don't have much time to spend on it. One day on the weekends is all I will be spending on it.

Ive been collecting parts / materials for the last few weeks and im getting ready to start the build.

Specs
2" x 3" x .120 wall frame
4' x 6' x 28.75" box
Disk brakes with independent suspension & Air Ride Dominator D2500 Double Bellow Air Bags
SCS stealth 6 wheels with 37"x 12.50 MTR's
Custom made water tank
BAMF built Swing out and removable BBQ/smoker
Tepui XL ruggedized tent
On board power
Silver powder coat on the box with a black coal powder coated frame and anodized blue powder coated suspension to match the truck.
Lock N roll hitch

Started the frame still waiting on the 2.5x2.5" x.250 wall tube for the receiver. This is just .120 wall.

I went with round tube for the box it's was a hell of a lot faster to just bend up 2 tubes and weld one joint then cutting and welding it all together. And It looks better the cross bars will be 1"x 1"x .065 wall square.I ended up lowering the box 1.25" to 28.75" just enough room for the 85Q fridge I'll be getting.









4/12/14 i built the top lid.

I got the trailing arms built today It only took about 5 hours to get them designed and built Gota love the Build pro welding table














I picked up the wheel bearings why not have the best





So i flipped it over and installed the wheels so we can roll it out of the shop during the week. It's pretty damn sick if i do say so myself.



Don't mind the lean I just have scrap tube in place of the struts so we can roll it around.

I got the tailgate just about done today I really didnt think it would take 9 hours to build it but I had a wild idea to make a spot for my camp stove.

It swings out and flips down my stove will be mounted on the gate for easy setup.









I also got the bbq swing out started kinda.

5/04/14
I got it just about skinned today and the air bags tacked in place. The sides of the box warped in pretty bad from the welding and i was staggering tacks and it still warped. I'm going to try to pry it back out with the high lift it look good though
