    Who doesn’t like some out of position welding under a Tacoma in a snow storm! Seems reasonable. Thanks @jmferg for letting me use your truck to pop my “weld onto a frame” cherry.

    Nah, I hammered the shit out of it. I also have carpal tunnel in both hands so the punch kept flying out of my hand.

    Anyone make it into Wharton this week? Was possibly thinking of going in on Valentine’s Day with my girlfriend but don’t want to get bogged down and stuck in too deep of a mud puddle. Might ruin her first experience with off-roading

    You aren’t wheeling in wharton if you aren’t getting stuck in Wharton. That wouldn’t ruin, but rather make it “memorable”, think optimistically

    my guess is its snow covered? Can’t see the puddles in snow. And the puddles are lakes as we all know too well look at my profile pic. Found that guy in the lake... he ended up using a canoe paddle to get out LUL.

    very nice Jay! One thing I like about having the military trailer is that the frame came with shackles for it already. They used to attach a strap to the humvee behind them and use the trailer to pull :eek:

    So many trailers online don’t have rear recovery points. I don’t get it

    Are those bolt on or weld on points? I’m looking at that design and already picturing it ripping right off the rear tubing. If you’ll be welding I might suggest ones that go all the way through the tube, to weld on both sides.

    something like this

    I wish the soft shackle lug was longer to weld both sides of the tube trust me. But gonna make do with it. Prob run a root fill cap multiple passes. The idea isn’t to do snatch recovery missions with it. Just to have some anchor point option, mostly light stuck winching. There’s gonna be a hitch receiver on the rear of the trailer and can always run a hitch pin in there with a strap. These lug anchors will be quick option if I have a hitch basket full of wood or whatever and I don’t wanna take it off to get quickly back on trail. If a big blue deezul 250 shows up to tug me out of a deep bog with a static strap I’ll be sure to unload the wood and hitch basket and prepare for a backiotomy lol
