    The monster tires are going to make a bolt-on solution tougher. If you want to spend some money, check Northern Tool, eTrailer.com, or Tractor Supply for trailer fenders. Most I have seen are 7" - 10" wide. You might still be outta luck depending on how much tire the law will allow to hang out.

    wouldnt have thought getting a set of gaurds rolled up out of some steel would cost much , but if your hard up for a dollar try looking around for one of those plastic 44 gallon drums and cut one of those up ...... ps trailer is looking good ..cheers

    How about flat top fenders out of treated for a place to set your electric splitter, or a small gas job with the wheels removed? Handy spot for servicing your saw as well.

    I like where you're going with that.

    2" receiver hitch mounted to one side. Or off the back.

    Then this. - http://bcove.me/89b1pk6w

    It's done! LOL ;lol on some of the comments. Just did my barrel idea, ready to rock&roll. Bearings repacked. Has a spare too.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my project on my off hours. Hope you did too.

    To round my costs:
    Trailer $0.00 with title
    Tires $0.00
    R&R tires $24.00 (But not spare)
    Decking $177.00
    Paint $0.00
    Hardware $18.00
    Fenders $0.00
    $18.00 to plate/tag a year

    Hours spent=Priceless

    Now you know the total cost!

    Nice and cheap. If you do feel like spending some money on it buy a pair of trailer tires for it. They have a stronger side wall than P or LT tires and will handle better with a load.
