  • The I don't want a trailer/ Jungle Jim product review/ other thread

    This post kind of covers a few topics so I don't know exactly where to put it.

    Lets start with the "I dont want a trailer" part. I know it is a better option but since my business mixes lawn care and pet waste removal I dont want to haul a trailer around to my non lawn mowing properties. Plus I have nowhere to store it, etc.

    I am between the line x, ramp, racks, tool box I could have gotten a nice trailer. But I still would have had to get a box, racks, etc. So on to the pics and stuff.

    Here is how my truck sits.

    You are looking at Jungle Jim 1 trimmer racks, JJ blower holder, JJ jungle boot and a x ramp.

    So the racks. I went with JJ because the Xtreme (or whatever they are called) racks only come in a 2 set up. And I would have had to buy the bedrail holder. The trimmer rack works great, it does not spin at all, the edger is a different story. It moves around, but with the weight off to the side I understand why. If I was buying a trailer and outfitting it I would have gone xtreme racks.

    The blower holder.

    HATE it. It is a pain to get the blower in and out, the parts dont fit together like they should and I had to bend the tabs to get a padlock to fit. HATE HATE HATE.

    Jungle Boot.

    Works well, no complaints other than it is not lockable, but I knew that before I bought it. I also think I installed it backwards, but it works fine so I am leaving it.

    Xramp. Install is fairly easy. The directions leave a bit to be desired but it is not rocket science. I am just happy not be lifting that mower in and out of the back of the truck 10 times a day any more.

    Hey, that's pretty nice. I've got to take a picture of mine when I load it. I sure could use some nice trimmer racks like that.

      That ramp is bad a$$ ! Beats the heck out of the 2x6's I used for years.

      Sweet set up, how's business?

        That looks like a fantastic setup. Now that you have it all like that, does it give you ideas on how you would improve on it all? Is there a better ideal in your mind?
