I got a return shipping label to send this box back. Now I have to figure out what to replace it with.

Why not just weld up a steel one the way you want it...I have a OEM steel box on mine, I like it so far.

i couldnt find one large enough or nice enough for mine, so i made my own. all 12g powdercoated steel. Hardest part was finding the locking latch....took some searching to find one. I carpeted the inside with commercial grade to cut noise.

Very nice...Lot's of space..Mine is somewhat limited due to the sloped design..I don't keep much beyond ratchet straps and a stinger in mine though. I keep the chains in the garage as I don't need them all that much.

Nice trailer. I thought about building a box and still may end up doing it. The main reason I did not build my own is the time. A latch is $20, a strut is $15, primer & paint $20, hinge $10 would be $55. Plus metal and some other miscellaneous parts. I could probably build one for half of what one costs:scratchchin:

What is a stinger?

I am going to keep the winch in mine. I am going to get a tool bag and keep my straps in it. My chains are the ones from lowes that come in their own bag. I'll put them and the binders in the box when I need them.
