    Friend gave me the remains of a '95 Dodge 1500 LWB....so I started turning it into a custom welding & fabrication trailer like I had intended to do with some scrap steel & extra axles I had lying around. Way better IMHO than one of those alternator based systems, and it can run 120/240VAC equipment too.

    Now I just gotta wait for the gas air compressor I just bought to arrive and I'll be set...

    This is a shackle I had to weld with it on the first day of a four day trip.

    This is the control box.It has the positive and negative hookups for the leads,on off switch and indicator light,and the volt gauge I picked up used at an electrical supply place. :D

    I made that box out of some junk I had.That box is realy nothing more than a place to tie together your wires and mount all of your stuff.There realy is no control per say.The on off switch energizes the field on the alt and you control voltage with engine RPM.The You could use any sort of metal box.Hell,you wouldnt even need to use a box realy.You could just make a plate or sort of panel to hook everything to if ya wanted.
