Wanted to share some pics of new build as so many on here helped with knowledge and advice. So all the guys loved our first build but were wandering around sad that we didn't have a project anymore. Being the kind generous person I am, without discussion I sold version 1.0 to pay for version 2.0. The guys were so happy to have another excuse to drink beer and talk trash. Some key lessons learned from our first build were as follows:
1. First build had no storage
2. Firebox was too big and too close to tires and tires would heat up to the point we had to place plywood heat shield when we would cook.
3. modified tacoma truck bed trailer while cheap took a ton of modification and time

Changes being made to new build are:
1. Storage box up front
2. Custom trailer, way faster and actually not that much more expensive than modifying first trailer.
3. new geometry mainly with wider axle
4. slightly smaller FB
5. propane jet burner will be installed up front for cooking/boiling water....and propane tank holder also
6. Pan ned tank rather than spherical which I like better for looks and think makes all around easier for build.

Here are pics of first build and new build

Nice looking layout and build so far. Might suggest some
gusset plates where tongue and braces meet main frame ?
Keep on keeping on...
