Modifications look good! Nice work.

Just a thought, but this may be something good to bring up to PJ trailers customer service..... mainly to "get with the times" and do a little redesign! Just let them know the side hole isn't big enough to fit the #1 selling brand of utility quad!

90% of the time modifying the "walls" on a trailer is a big "NO NO" because the wall acts as a truss and actually is a very important structural member of a trailer. In this case, based on the location of the modification, I would say you're pretty safe. a couple questions though...

Does the modified rail meet a cross member where it joins the frame?

Do the new tie down points line up with cross members to prevent twisting and warping of the frame?

Your not the only one that freaked and thought ooooh shit, he just destroyed his trailer and weakened it severely.

Guess if it has removable rails, it's a non issue and that mod is a much needed one.

I think PJ is probably the best built trailer out there.
I am contemplating having one built with the options I want.
