My P5 build

Well after looking for several days for a nice sturdy box for the rear of our p5 and no such luck in finding what I wanted. I decided to try and build one. Here is what I have so far.

I will start to wire wheel tonight and hopefully have it read to prime and paint to the next day or 2.

Thanks! I'm wanting to have something similar built and was hoping to keep the weight down so the payload is as much as possible.

You know for me it was about hauling stuff when we go trail riding. Its about 1 and half hours to get to the closest atv grounds to ride and you can ride all day and not cross the same path. They even allow camping. I just want to make sure i had room for all of our gear and not loose it. If i am going to haul something real heavy i will hook up my small trailer. I also use it on the farm and again i just wanted make something big enough so i wasn't looking all over the field for what ever i had in the back and it had fallen out do to not being large enough. I figured i should even be able to haul a small batch of fire wood on the back. i just didn't see anything i could by that was large enough. I am past the speed thing. If i have to travel in 3rd gear while load down then so be it. It would have been nice to do it in aluminum but i already had the steal and i do not know how to weld aluminum. I just used what i had and done what i know how to do.
