Yeah I could. I'd have to weld on a mounting plate.
I'm sure your Lexus and JK brakes are better than my jeep. But... my little popup is about 1,000lb stock, probably pushing double that as it sits now and loaded for a weekend. You definitely know it's back there and you can feel it pushing you especially down hills offroad. Muddy trails could get sketchy without brakes.

Yep that's something I'll have to think about once I see how it feel on the road.

Got the roof metal bent at S&S welding. Fit pretty good after a little heat and a 2# sledge. Hooked up to the XJ and pulled around the yard and in the ditch. Seems to pull good and doesn’t feel too heavy but haven’t added the 26gal water tank and big a$$ fridge yet. Oh and the two batteries. I’m really pleased with the look and function of it so far. Just worried if the suspention will handle the weight . If not I will upgrade to the 3500# set up and build another lighter one with the 2000# that I have now. Anybody want one I work for Bud Light. Still so excited to get this thing on the road.

Need to order some gas lifting shocks for the side doors. Sounds simple but for some reason I'm a little confused on what weight and length to order. Anyone got some insight on this?

I can help you calculate it. I did it for mine when I made my camping trailer lid. Need to know some dimensions of your lid and where you plan to mount your lift strut.

This is the only sketch I have of what mine was. This was before I totally understood how the struts worked at compression. You want it to be slightly inverted at full close.

Ok I'll make a drawing if you don't mind looking at it.

You can also order stiffer rubber suspension pucks for your arms if needed.

Looks great all closed up. I look forward to seeing this thing in action

Brooks did you directly from Timbren? I’m thinking about ordering a set of 4” spindles with break flanges. That might fix two problems. The tire clearance in the wheel wells and the need for breaks.

The trailer company I used on the teardrop ordered straight from timbren. I called timbren a few times before I had mine built and discussed which option would be best and why. They were very helpful and interested in what people build with their parts.

Cool. I sent them a email.

Like I needed any more weight on this thang. Not so sure about the awning mount. Had to get it away from the doors and the RTT. It’s bolted on so I guess I can change it later if it don’t work out.
