Sorry, those are the best pics I have of the trailer. Lots of pics of the boat on the water though. Haven't caught anything with the nets yet, other than rocks off the road.

Do now. Basically it is just a peice of 1x1 angle iron that extends the full lenght, with 2 short peices welded to it that extend downward along and past the 2" reciever with a bolt under the bottom to claamp it tight. I installed the 2 diagonals not knowing if I needed them. Like I said, not pretty but it works great.

That's how I made mine as well, a piece of angle iron, mud flaps from a truck supply place and a u-bolt that goes around the bottom of my receiver with 2 holes in the angle iron. All the weight sits on your receiver so the u-bolt basically just holds the angle iron from moving. Cost me about 40 or so dollars with the mud flaps being the most expensive part. Just cut them down to the size you need.

Not the greatest picture but you can see them on the truck, I bought blue mud flaps to match my blue trailer and put some crome brackets on them so they wouldn't sail. They sit about 2 inches from the ground and have no problem covering up those 40" tires....

These have adjustable arms to raise or lower the height of the flaps. 240 bucks.
