Looks awesome! It's similar to my frame (but mine's steel and SUPER heavy). I can't wait until I an afford to get an aluminum one made.

Dang that seems thin, I'm building one for a 13hp. do you think .120 will be strong enough with it resting on the hitch?

true, I think I'm going to build one with .083 for myself, if it holds fine it will save my customers some weight
