I've just signed up for the forum - feel free to say hi on the welcome board.
Here's my project:
• approx 200 gallon smoker
• 2 6' utility truck bedsides to act as cutting boards and storage
• independent torsion axles with adjustable spindles to get ride height correct.
• custom adjustable trailer coupler to adapt to different tow vehicles
• more to come I'm sure but that's about how far I am at this point.
Here come the pics. (everybody loves those)
Chamber as it arrived:
Brainstorming the bedside placement
End cap lopped off - there will be a warmer box above the fire box.
Torsion axles fresh off the UPS truck
Axle width testing
more testing of placement
frame finding it's new home. 4" square tubing. (a little too beefy but the 24' link was free!)
axle in place(ish)
boxes getting squared up and tested
skipped a few steps here... boxem mounted, frame capped and adjustable hitch created and tacked on.
1st test pull after I stitched the frame and hitch together.
Wheel width is almost the same as the Mule. - much less than a full size truck.
Building my wood storage area
Floor in place, cardboard side on there to simulate sheetmetal.
this is where it sits tonight - more work to be done tomorrow.
