I took a quick extra picture of the rear spring shackle mount. I thought it might be worth a few seconds to add it here. The rear springs do hang out past the rear of the bumper about 1 inch. But I don't think I will ever hit them, I know famous last words etc.

Now on to the rear light and wiring. I had welded a flat tab on the fender. I did it such that the light would be "Up tight and out of sight" of and rocks or trees that wanted to mess with me.

Here is a picture of the right or passenger side of the trailer lights. As you can see green is the blinker light and Brown is the running light or tail light.

Here is a picture of the left or driver side of the trailer lights. As you can see yellow is the blinker light and brown is the running light or tail light.

I ran the wires for the rear trailer light into the frame. Here is where I come out of the frame and in to the fender for the rear drivers side light.

This is a picture of the other side of the trailer. The pictures are taken from the inside before the aluminum body is added.

More Trailer frame wiring.

This shows a bit more detail on running the wires though the frame and back to the electric brakes and to the tail lights.

This is a close up of the wires exiting the frame on the front right above the tongue. The picture is funny it looks like the frame is bent, but let me assure you it is straight.

This shot highlight the rear receiver tow hook point I added. I made the mount small, meaning it is only about 5 inches long, but I did tie it into the front of the trailer with a piece or 2 inch x 1/4 inch flat bar welded with at least 8 inches of weld on each end. The engineer helping me with the project convinced me this was more than strong enough to hold the weight of the trailer and my Jeep if I ever need towed by this mount.

A nice clean shot of the rear frame, spring and wheel all mounted read for for battle.

 

The blue wire hanging down is for the Electric Brakes I added. next I will tackle all the wiring.
