    Hey Ken, setup looks good! I bet you like not having to put the tiny tires on your XJ to get it on a trailer anymore!

    FYI, Agri Supply in Garner has axles, rims with mouted tires, fenders, lights, jacks, tounges, etc., etc., rows and rows of the stuff, cheapest I've ever seen too.

    Also, rows and rows of hydraulic cylinders, chains, straps, I love that place.

    Did you ever get the breaks worked out on the trailer. I know on the trailer that i use you can't have the trailer break on at all when there is no load on the trailer or it will lock up all four tires. Even when it has some weight on it having the brakes turned all the way up will still cause the trailer to lock up. Then only way I can turn them all the way up is when I have the bronco on it. Just a thought.

    I have a set number I run loaded and one when unloaded.
    That is what is nice about prodigy controlers and most of the better ones out there.

    That thing looks great man. I would love to have the time, supplies, and tools to built one. Great Job. Looks better than most homebuilt trailers. Hell, Looks better than all...:driver:
