    Okay it's not a truck but it going to be my winter project, it's a old tilt snowmobile trailer that is going to become a utility trailer for lawn movers, my kid's quad, dirt bike and what ever else we can think of. The skills we use on our trucks are the same as I will use on this. I need to repair some rust holes and remove/treat rust on the bottom.

    What products have you guy's used Por-15, Rust bullet, Etc... I want to know from experience what has worked. I plan to paint it with a frame paint and the deck coated with spray on bed liner. It will get rewired/new lights, new wheels/tires, new trailer coupler, I plan building sides for it also.

          So I finally started to do some work on this trailer, I started with the hubs and wheel bearings.
          Blasted the hubs, cleaned and packed the bearings, painted the hubs, caps and lug bolts.

          Next will be patching some holes and filling in the taillight holes. I plan on moving them to the sides.

          Not sure I would put a permeate sides on it. I have a 4x6 that has become a 4x9 and sides have been removed. Got tired off working 4 foot stuff onto it and the garden tractor would not fix without removing the wheel weights. All is fine now and can load from any side . I did add some tie downs down the sides to fasten things on with. I need to add some to the front and rear some time.

            My thought was removable sides.

            I like the forklift friendly beds. Even the one ton is a flat bed.
