thinking about this for a while now, finally pulled the trigger. kinda think it should have been something that all rough riders came with from the factory. this is currently a work in progress. as of the photos its about 75 percent complete. although it looks like it is being welded on, actually this is a bolt on solution. bolted the custom bracket/frame to the bottom of trailer, then weld in pipes. once done, it will be unbolted and sent to the power coater for a semi gloss black finish.
the goal was not to create something that would stop a rear end accident, but more to be a warning thud if backing into a campsite or get to close to a rock/tree when slowly driving a dirt trail. basically keeping me from doing something stupid.
Although the concept was of my making, the solution came from Charles and Hitch 2 Hitch who took my ideas and ran with it. his fulfillment of my vision was way better than i had come up with. very happy so far.https://www.yelp.com/biz/hitch-2-hitch-la-verne?utm_campaign=www_business_share_popup&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=
end of day one. mostly planning and cutting lots of pipes.
lots of under the TD planning.
started on rear bumper/guard first.
scrap paper on the ground was the tons of paper patterns made to figure this out
rear still not finished, but starting to take shape. still have end supports to create and install
starting the sides opps... too short although it was my plan, didnt like as it made it hard to get into door.
need to try again - tomorrow. end of day one,
