Glad to help out. Dmitry's project is looking pretty good so far. Next will be to get the new clutch parts in and everything buttoned back up.

Isn't it a bit heavy for a trailer frame?

How is it that much heavier than 2x3 or 2x4 box steel that we plan on using? I understand it will be slightly heavier, but it wil be built for off-road and will allow me to use a LR rear axle, suspension, fuel tank turned water tank, etc. Plus I can throw a tub on it.

Yes it sounds like a good fit if you want to use the rover suspension and axles (and other bits). But my gut tells me the total weight difference is going to be very significant though including the axle and suspension weight differences.

But truth be told I don't have any idea how heavy the frame is (nor the % you'd actually use), nor the rover axle and suspension weights . I estimate a 2x3x3/16 frame (2x6 for rear xmember and 2.5x2.5 for tongue) is going to be about 250 pounds. No idea on a trailer axle and suspension.

But the price sounds right - I'll probably spend more than that on steel If you change your mind about taking it, let me know.

Ren, first off, damn you for not telling me about this.

Second, Jonathan might be letting me take the frame if it meets my needs, and if yes, then I'm interested in the axle. Any suspension bits with it?

Third, any idea what this frame weigh's or the rear most 7ft of it (I think I'd need up to roughly between the front trailing arm ears and the front outriggers?

thanks,
charles

yu are building a 109 trailer. I know Jonathan is looking to make a d90 one which is why I texted him a photo of it yesterday afternoon while at dmitry's place.

only thought of using the rear axle for it this morning.

I'm a cheapskate and don't do this newfangled "texting" thing, so I didn't get your text by the way.

If you either sell the frame and the purchaser doesn't want the front crossmember or if you simply would be interested in selling the front crossmember, please contact me. I know it was hit in the front, but I think I could salvage it and replace my rotted front piece. Please contact if either of the above mentioned scenarios work out.

I move these frames around by myself before and after galvanizing. They are not that heavy.

To the guy needing a front crossmember. You mean the front section? You can get a RRC or Discovery frame and cut it up to repair a damaged defender frame if you really want to make the effort. Just cut off all the bits from your D frame and weld them on the repair. If you are good you can even cut off the section that has the ID numbers and weld them on to your repaired section. Of course check with local policy etcccc...

yeah have to agree. the front on this one is a real mess. I'm sure it will be available though.

How far back do you need? A picture of what you need (or the damaged area) might help.

Hoping to go check it out Friday evening before committing to purchase, but if all goes to plan I'll send you the Front crossmember as long as I don't need any of it. I have to stretch the rear a bit and I'm not sure exactly where I'll be scavenging material for it from yet as I might end up using most of it if I do the tongue the way I envision it.

I paid 900 in NJ to have my 110 frame blasted, it cost less than 250 for galv. YMMV.
