boler jeeps

;) Ryan, obviously we know how its done! I also put the wide flares on and frame mounted detachable mud flaps for 10" tires. Sure keeps the front of the trailer clean etc. Your original jeep rims will fit on the Boler hubs with 1" spacers and a 5.5" axle lift. You will have to cut the wheel well bigger. A set of slightly cut-down CJ rear flares look great to finish it off. We call our combination "Jeap Thrills". Do you go to any Jeep Jamborees?

STOP

Alright already. I can not handle it.:weep My wife says it is an addiction and I can not help myself, but you are torturing me. I Love Jeeps! I need a Jeep!:wub I have been working on a 1952 Willys pick-up for a long time. I thought it might be running this coming summer, but do to my job it will not. I had a Wrangler but sold it so that I could afford college and have regretted it ever since.:bh I came close 3 months ago to buying a Wrangler, but Ellie reminded me of other other possible exspenses and I decided to wait again.:bh :bh The only good thing about this now is Ellie said I could buy a Wrangler upon my return in about 6 months. Unfortunately my trailer still needs to be refurbished yet.:censor My father said he will continue to work on it while I am gone. He told me numerous people have stopped and asked if it was for sale. He even wants me to sell it to him. When I return I would like to see some close up photos of the wheel well modifications that Hans made.:jump

Jeeps

We've only had the trailer now for a few months (6?) so I have only just begun to toss ideas around about modifying it on the outside to match the jeep.

We had planned to go to the bobcayjeon jamboree this summer but I don't think we will be. We have booked all our vacation time this year for early October so we can go on a second honeymoon to Florida for our 5th anniversary.

Jamboree's will be in for next year.

I have a set of wide fender flares lined up for the jeep to help protect the trailer. The idea of detachable mudflaps also sounds like a good idea.

I also just worked out a deal to get a set of 4 33X10.5 BFG all Terrain KO's to wear when pulling the trailer. I really didn't like the idea of pulling a trailer on the American Interstates with mud tires.

Hans: I would love to see some info and photos about your trailer lift and wheel well mods. I wonder could you use the stock TJ fender flares on the trailer after you chop open the wells?

How does the trailer pull once it has been lifted?

One thing is for certain. I like my trailer. So far I think we have had 2 offers to buy it off us. I am almost certain we could sell it at a profit.

;)

Lifted?

Please detail the lift on these trailers. I am building a CJ to tow my Scamp. The Jeep build is detailed at my site. Fuel injection to be installed soon! Any info or pics would be appreciated, on the lift

Where's Augie?

He tows his Casita 16 with a Jeep and should be chiming in on this thread. He's had some really interesting experiences. (Also a vintage MG enthusiast, but those MG's are definitely not good tow vehicles.)

Hey Augie, come play!

jeep towing Boler

:wave
The wheel well and lift pix have been taken. I just have to do the computer thing. (Soon) The trailer (72 Boler 13') pulls very well. Make sure you get your tongue weight right. Except for the mountain roads, I don't feel it behind me. I checked and on the boler, the tj rear flares may not work too good. They have to be cut substantially where it meets the door as well as lowered. An old pair of CJ flares were easy to modify. I used the flares as a pattern to cut the trailer glass and checked for fit with the wheel. The spacers were cut from 1" thick aluminum plate and the holes cut with lathe (centre) and drillpress (lugs) to fit the 235 ATS Wranglers. You will need long studs and racing lugnuts. This will give you 5/16" space between the tire and the inside of the well.
Hans
