It has taken far longer than I expected, but I am almost done fixing up and painting my T4 trailer. I have completely re wired it adding a 25 ft 5 way trailer wire harness for the reverse lights I added, and a 2 to 3 wire conversion that separates the tail/brake lights from the turn signal, since it is an amber sequential turn light. I just finished staining the wood. I'll post a before and after pics. All I have left.... is to install the rhino USA 4 wheel chock tie down system, which I am currently painting to match the trailer to be completely finished and ready to take on the road. This should make me easy to find for any of you that want to meet and go do trails. :)

Great job! I’ve never seen that much detail work on a trailer.
Thanks 303hunter and Rmills, I have to admit...No one has ever called me "normal".... I painted my 5x8 trailer like this, except i never did the black stripes on it. and my daughter told me to paint this one like it, so I kinda had to. Glad it's almost done, not sure if I have it in me to paint another trailer like this. It took over 500 feet of vinyl stripe tape and 18 cans of primer, paint, & clear coat. and about 3 weeks to do it, mostly at night from 7pm to 3 am ( lately) been burning the midnight oil. finishing up the wheel chocks now and hoping I didn't overdue the black stripes, taped them off last night while sleep deprived and half drunk. Now it's time to bolt the wheels chocks in place and I will be done...finally

I thought I had replied after SuperATV, Rmills and Arizona defenders posts, but it's not on here. Thanks for the comments. Defenders Teryx is the same color as mine. When I sent pics of my T4 to a friend right after getting it, and he saw the color and asked when I was going to EVH the teryx?

That Frankenstrat is sooo cool Lifted, I think I need to make a mount for it on the bars behind my back seats and I could do the trails in style, plus it would look great back there when I have it on the trailer going to and from the trails..can I borrow it? ...heeheehee.. I know the answer already and would give anyone the same "(Hell) no" answer
I had to stop working on it last week and my daughter came for a 3 day weekend so I'm just now getting to start on it again.All that's left is to drill & bolt the chocks down, hopefully I can get that done in the next day or two. and will finally get to post the final pics of it all finished. I have some EVH guitar pics to give you Lifted, I only wanted the tin they came in.
I have also learned about some more offroad parks in Missouri. One is near Sparta, close to chadwick called soggy bottoms. and one is near Mountain grove called Hooter Hollar.
plus I have several in Arkansas that I want to go to down by the Mulberry river and some by the Big Piney river. time to finish the trailer so I can start taking it. time to start drilling the chock holes! hopefully finished pics will be on here soon

Hell yeah! I couldn't resist taking a pic of the Frankenstrat with my Tyrex4 ! I have a buddy who owns his own decal shop maybe look into having it wrapped?? He is going to do my lil Z125Pro in an EVH wrap its been in the works for some time. Yes I haven't been to any of those parks but I do want to plan some trips to them. Those Guitar pics would look good with the Frankenstrat. We might be doing another Disney trip in 3 weeks just a heads up. I have some rock lights to install but doubt I'll have them done by then. Lol
I have a print out of a bunch off road places in the state I know one is closed permanently in Lincoln MO though.

Sounds Good. If all goes well my buddy is bringing his Razor also,I hope the weather stays nice. We are either going to camp at Hogan's or rent a cabin from one of our buddies friend we met 3 weeks ago he took us out & I followed his GF in her Rzr & he was in his rock bouncer. It was super fun. I'll give you his number if you are interested in checking on a cabin?

I'll probably camp at hogans this time, and will get cabin number from you while there. I do have a rhino chock question for you, I'm getting ready to mark the holes to bolt the chocks to the trailer. do i push the chocks right up to the tires, or do i leave a little gap?

well....maybe tomorrow....as i was about to mark the holes for the wheel chocks today my family tracking app alerted me about a possible wreck with my parents and it was right
so i had to quickly unload t4 and trailer and run up to there. theyre ok but dads vehicle is totalled. I brought them home and they seem to be fine but They might feel sore tomorrow? If Im lucky, I can finish trailer tomorrow, if not it will be a few days. I will be using this accident to take the keys away from dad and will probably take moms car away from her too. It wont go well with them, but needs to be done. I'll post pics when I can get trailer finished, not sure when that will be right now. I was faster than a nascar pit crew tonight, unloading t4 & unhooking trailer from my truck so I could race up to accident. I ran both stop lights in town and passed many cars from the center turn lane on the way up. but did it safely and made sure no one was crossing street at stoplights before I ran the red lights, its a small town & not much traffic....thank goodness, hopefully I can start all over again tomorrow or thursday

Dang Man,sorry to hear that,yeah I'd say the trailer & all can wait glad they are ok. Yup taking the keys won't go over well. Definitely they will be sore. Main thing is that they are ok. Be safe👍
