Nice work! Your trailer looks better than those aftermarket ones. As trailer tires, how's the performance of MTRs? I'm thinking of getting the nitto tires for my trailer though can't decide yet on what size.

The choice in size was dictated by the size of the tires I have on my jeep, I wanted them to match.
With one trip to the rhino lining shop on them it is too early to tell how they will work out, but with the 1 trip 15 miles on the freeway they tracked well no issue.
======

Even though the Batwing comes with 2 brackets they will not work on the rack with the way I am setting it up. I pulled out the plasma cutter and made 3 brackets. Rhino rack sent me another set of T bolts for my 3rd bracket.
I made my own brake to set up inside of my Harbor Freight cheap'o press and it worked well for the first set of bends. I need to weld these on, paint the rack, complete the wiring for the rack then drop it back into the M416....
I hope to have some time this weekend to knock some of this out...

Welded on the brackets for the Batwing today. Also picked up a pigtail wiring set up for the rack...
Next is wiring up pigtail and paint the rack.
