Number 2 with a smile. Fiberglass utility bed will be put on a truck frame, lifted and built up to the extreme. This will be fun...:). I'll keep posted on progress!!

That truck bed is exactly what I've been looking for! Can't wait to see how it turns out.
May I ask where you found it? And how much?

Thanks guys! I actually knew a guy who just wanted it off his property. That's what you call luck! I've seen a few on craigslist but they aren't cheap. Usually $600-800 and fiberglass beds are rare. I plan on really going all out on this one. May have to strip the other trailer of a few parts.

The kitchen and plumbing will be first priority. A platform will be topping off the rack and frame/ suspension are yet to be found. But I'll get'r done in time.

Holy crap! That's going to be one helluva nice off-road trailer.
Gotta put mud tires on that bad-boy. Looking forward to the build-up pics.

Planning on a chevy 1/2 frame with a lift and 33" or 35" tires. After pulling the smaller trailer it will be getting the air ride for sure. Just like how it pulls.

Lane, you are the MAN when talking about base camp trailers. I can see a thread for all to watch.

Lane you sure have a passion for base camp trailers! Can't wait to see what you have in store. Maybe this time you can fit a hot tub in there somehow. lol

Good news! Just found a 1/2 ton truck bed trailer that might work. It'll need some modifications but it'll do the trick. Better news, it's already lifted. Best news, they only want $75 for it.... Can I get a hell yeah!

This coming weekend I'll grab a few tires from the ranch and pull it up here. Then the fun begins!

What? It gave you a chubby...? Yeah, think it's called a trailer fettish! J/k, bro!

Got it loaded up to take out to the ranch and start the mounting process. Going to get the frame tomorrow night and haul it back. It's about to begin!!!

VOTE NEEDED! Leave the color alone? OR bed line it black to match the fj....

I'm leaning toward black...

The first trailer looked sweet in black.
