Today I spoke to Gary for almost 40 minutes on the phone. He is really easy to work with. The specifications have adjusted a little bit.
Here are the specs I would get:
- 4 1/2'W x 6'L x 3'H. We are going 6" wider inside so a sheet of plywood can be slid in on the floor.
- Rear ramp door that can either act as a ramp or as a tailgate.
- 10" of ground clearance at the body, not the axle at a minimum.
- He is going to accommodate the high hitch height of the Cherokee with a target of 21".
- 4 strips of E-Track (2 on the floor, 1 on each wall). Plus 4 D-rings on the floor (in the corners).
- 8 total high mounted tie points for use on gear on the lid. 3 per side, 2 in the front. - Likely D-rings or something of that nature.
- 2 U points (military style) on the rear to cross tie long cargo (one strap on a floor D-ring, across the cargo, and anchored to a proper location at the rear by the bumper / frame).
- Spare mounted on the left side, folding table on the right (for camping, working, etc).
- Large tool box on the front that can hold at least 2ea 5 gallon gas cans.
- Upgraded 3,500 lb axle with 14" wheels.
Again, this is all through Montrose Trailers in MI. He offers a lifetime warranty on the frame and body as well, so it is good to know he stands behind his work.
Now, back to what you tow! Show what your Cherokee can pull.
