    The trailer rims and tires, I think are 5.5" bolt pattern. I buy my rims, tires, and all my trailer parts from Southwest Wheels here in Dallas, Texas. This is there web site - www.etrailerpart.com, they have just about anything you'll ever need for trailers small or big... Sorry to about getting long winded, but I believe thats the chevy bolt pattern too...

    [QUOTE=chilinges;2873]Hey Dan, here some picks on the finished trailer with wheels and tires plus the goat getter attached.

    Great job! And idtto the cearlier compliment on priming. New paints are very good but priming always makes for a better longer lasting job.
    I've been thinking of something like that for hauling feeder cattle. I have a car hauler I use for my tractor and was thinking of making some kind of removalble sides strong enough for feeders. The trailer is set up with 2x4 pockets for side. I've been undecided as to what kind of stock to use for the side rails so keep putting off the project. What did you use on yours?

    Cool

    My rails are 2" x 2" X 1/8" angle iron on the trailer, but on that cage I used 1-1/4" Sq. Tubing (14g) all around and 1-1/2 angle on the ramp. I think I have an idea what your thinking about and I would used 2" sq.tubing (14g) for your rails and 2"x2"x 3/16" angle on the uprights. It should be stong enough for livestock.

    Thanks, good idea. I'm thinking of a narrow ramp with sides to keep them going in the right direction like a chute. Toying with the idea of making dividers to separate animals and stop them from slopping around and to balance load. My trailer already has a system that allows ramps to be put at any location for loading equipment which can easily be modified with rails for livestock. If sides had hinged sections then I could load unload each division independantly. What do you think? Think it needs to have a top?
    3/16 angle should be strong enough every 2 feet. So, think 2" sq. would be ok for cattle huh? Won't know for sure till I give it a try. Think this will be my winter project.
    I see you have a hypertherm, I have one of there small plasma cutters that I havent used in years, since maybe 97.
