    There's a shot of mine on the E-Maxx page of my website. You might be able to find some older ones here on the forums, but I don't know how many of my old pictures still work.

    I used threaded rod through some steel tubing for my axles. The tires/wheels came off from an old toy truck that I had laying around. Some people have used touring car tires for their trailers as well.

    EDIT: If you check out the Villain Picture/Video Gallery, it looks like some my pictures still work. The second post in the thread has a couple of other shots of my trailer.

    Thanks for the pictures. My dad and I just got back from home depot a few hours ago and got all supplies to start making the trailer. We will start building the frame tomorrow, I will post pictures during the whole process of making the trailer.

    I had a great idea for my trailer, I'm going to model it after the trailer that my 1:1 malibu is on. I'm going to a "v" shape to the bottom of the trailer. Pictures of the frame will be up tomorrow hopefully.

    Now all I really need to know is which wheels I should put on the trailer. I was thinking 4-tec wheels.

    What are your suggestions?

    I'm not sure if posted those pics write or not so if you could tell me if I did or not, and is there a thread on posting pictures on the forums?

    That's looking really good!

    You may want to put some small strips of metal on the bottom of the V's to helps brace it up a bit.
    It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand.
