THIS would be the PERFECT MJ Bed....

Especially for anyone building an MJ715..

 

M101 trailer:

There's actually an M101a1, an M101a2 & an M101a3, I'm trying to find the correct dimensions for all,

some say 76" long for the a1, others say 96' (one source even said 55" long :nuts: )

Either way it looks like it would be pretty easy to cut down.

 

The width between wheelwells seems dead on for us (~43")

:agree:

 

That would be a good alternative for the MJ box :idea:

 

Looks easy enough to build too :brows:

 

And........wouldn't require the $250 per pair of MJ tail lights :yes:

 

 

Ebaying your taillights & tailgate could almost pay for the trailer. :smart:

Only issue could be the width:

 

I be it would still look great with the MJ lines, but narrowing it might be better for a trail truck (atleast on tight NE trails).

Thanks for posting that. :thumbsup:

 

I actually found that thread, then could not find it again later. :nuts:

 

They list the width between the wheel wells elsewhere in that thread,

I thought it had said ~43", but re-reading the thread, it's posted as 45.5".

 

Ours is also under 48" ( :dunce: engineers), so 45.5" should be nearly dead on.

If you are half descent at fab work i think this could be a very cool look, plus you could have a trailer that matches the truck!

 

:D

 

Thanks for posting this up, i'm definitely going to look into doing this on mine, especially since my bed is beat to crap & i'm not very good with body work...
