    Longshot's custom trailer build

    Final Trip 2016! Wanted to make one more coastal trip before the end of the year so on Thursday, my bro and I loaded up the gear to try catching something big from the shipping channel between Port Aransas and Aransas Pass. Long story short, we didn't catch anything big, but did get some big...

    Longshot's custom trailer build

    This weekend on Mustang Island. We had high tides, full moon, and wind pushing water up the shore from the gulf. I recently upgraded to a 4000 peak watt dual fuel generator from Walmart for $300ish. It works great. Next time we are camping on the sand we can run the camper from the generator...

    Longshot's custom trailer build

    Things got really busy and I didn't have time to get the pictures uploaded. End of August some friends and I wanted to give Matagorda a try for sharks and such. We all left from work on Friday. My buddy in the black jeep had a little utility trailer with gear, generator, lights, canopies and...

    Longshot's custom trailer build

    I promise I did plan on getting up early…but with 100+ degree heat and 6 hours of sleep each night that week and 4 hrs the night before, I was kinda tired. So I slept late (7 AM) and moseyed on out to the sand to see how well the rig works. Had a one really good...

    Longshot's custom trailer build

    In order to attach the cattle panel sides (galvanized steel) to the trailer (aluminum) I had to frame each side like a picture frame to clamp the panel in. Also, before someone asks, I did not do a dually conversion, the spare was just getting in the way. Test...

    Longshot's custom trailer build

    Personally, I like how long trailers pull so for my trailer I didn’t want to chop things down like typical off road trailers. By deciding to keep the full 16’ length, the next issue was where to mount the leaf spring. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I made a trip a nearby RV dealership. From...

    Longshot's custom trailer build

    This little setup worked so well for fishing that I decided to trade my boat and longtail for some custom aluminum work. I’ve had the idea for a while now because my parents have a little 4x6 box trailer that has been incredibly handy over the years. I just wanted the dimensions a little...

    What do you Tow?

    1432 alumacraft with hopped up longtail. 19-21 mpg towing leave more room in the budget for fun stuff.

    Standard vehicle equipment

    Actually, I did some organizing before taking the picture :jester: The Patriot has a surprising amount of space around the spare and when stuff gets muddy I just tie it to the front bumper.

    Standard vehicle equipment

    Yeah, after the October flood when I couldn't get home because the water rose so fast I had to crash at a Co worker's place with whatever was in my jeep. Getting back in was a B because of all the debris that filled the streets.

    I actually kept all that and more in my old toolbox. I keep a 22lr/410 single shot tucked under the seat but I don't usually advertise that.

    Yep, but I've never buried anyone who didn't deserve it. :jester:

    Standard vehicle equipment

    I wrote this up for another forum but thought I'd post it here also: By request, here's all the stuff I have tucked away in the nooks and crannies of my Patriot. This is standard equipment on-board 100% of the time...and probably why 24 mpg is a bit rare. Yes, I'm over geared compared to...

    Tire Down..83k miles later- Goodyear Duratracs

    Dang, I couldn't get tires to last longer than 20K on my F150. I wonder if they have some small enough for my Jeep?

    Got some POS Mopar 4x6's. They'd work for picking up nails off the garage floor. :lol:

    What Did You Do To Your Truck Today? v2.0

    The other "new modification" photo spot. The big 4x4s moved enough gravel around that I wasn't afraid of getting high centered. My truck may have had better clearance but this little car can climb some crazy gravel slopes.

    CB antenna on the front jeep bumper to give my handheld midland a better range. Do NOT need pictures. He might, but the rest of us are good. :lol:

    I dunno, I was one brick high enough to let the water pass underneath a few months ago when the Blanco river flooded. Everyone with real houses got indoor mud pits.

    What Did You Do To Your Truck Today? v2.0

    When I can afford a set of 16" wheels, it'll have them. Right now there is nothing good for 17" wheels.
