3 Year Frame/1 Year Limited Warranty
All PJ utility trailers with a model year of 2010 or later receive a 3 year frame warranty and a 1 year limited warranty.
3/16" Angle Cross-members
Our 3/16" angle cross-members are much stronger than the more commonly used 1/8" angle. They will withstand heavier loads and extend the life of your trailer.
4" Channel Frame Standard
Our single and tandem axle utilities receive a 4" channel frame standard. A c-channel frame is significantly stronger than the angle frames most manufacturers use.
4" Channel Tongue Standard
We use 4" c-channel frame for the tongue on all PJ utility trailers. This ensures a great pulling trailer that can take years of heavy use
Aluminum Removable Fenders
Not only do our aluminum diamond plate fenders look great, they reduce the overall weight of the trailer. They can also be removed with bolts for off-road use or easy replacement.
Board Caps for Deck
Each deck board is installed under a board cap (the front and rear bumper). This keeps the ends of the board from "curling" and lifting from the frame.
Each PJ utility trailer receives 2" or 2 5/16" Bulldog™ coupler depending on the axle rating. The Bulldog™ coupler has a well-earned reputation for being the toughest, most durable coupler in the trailer industry.
We equip every PJ utility with a swivel-mount Bulldog™ jack. These zinc coated jacks are set back in the tongue so they do not interfere with your truck tail gate. They can also be quickly flipped up and down, saving you time and energy when compared to a traditional a-frame jack.
Canadian Spruce Pine Fir Lumber
We use Canadian spruce pine fir lumber our utility trailers. SPF is known for not only its strength but good looks and durability.
Entire Frame Powder Coated
We encourage you to take a look under our utility trailers and you will see a frame that is completely powder coated. Many manufactures don't paint the underside of their trailers or paint the trailer after the deck has been installed. Unpainted surfaces allow for rapid corrosion and rust on the trailer frame.
Flush Mount Lights
One of the most common complaints with other utility trailers is users damaging their surfaced mounted lights. This is why we flush mount our lights on all of our utility trailers. Having the lights mounted in grommets inside the frame protects them from damage & debris, keeping your trailer legal and safe.
Heavy Gauge Expanded Metal Gates
Our utility trailer gates use 11 gauge expanded metal for additional strength and to help reduce sag between cross-members.
Our utility trailers are built in compliance with the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers trailer safety regulations. Be very wary of any manufacturer that does not comply with NATM safety standards.
Posi-lube Powder Coated Axles
Posi-lube axles makes axle maintenance extremely easy. You can repack your bearings by simply injecting grease with a manual grease gun (not an air grease gun). Our axles are also powder coated for increased durability over the life of the trailer.
Powder coat is regarded as far superior to conventional liquid paint. Powder coat is more durable and lasts longer that liquid paint while still providing a high gloss finish. It is also much more environmentally friendly than traditional paint since it emits virtually no VOCs and "overspray" can be recycled.
Radial tires are superior to bias ply tires in many ways. Radial tires feature better fuel economy, less vibration, a softer ride, and extended life due to less heat being generated by the tire.
Removable Sides (Rails & Uprights)
Want to remove the sides of the utility trailer for a bulky load? All PJ Utility trailers feature sides that can be removed by unbolting them from the frame.

Sand Blasted & Acid Washed
Our trailers are blasted with steel shot to remove surface contaminants and mill scale from the steel. The trailer is then acid washed to remove any micro contaminants that sandblasting didn't remove. The trailer is then rinsed and dried, giving the powder coat a clean surface to adhere to.
Sealed Wiring Harness Inside Steel Conduit
We know trailer wiring issues are one of the top complaints for most utility trailer owners. That is why we use a sealed wiring harness to protect our wiring from water, dirt, and corrosion. This harness is enclosed in steel conduit throughout the frame of the trailer, to further protect the wiring from ice, road debris, and physical damage. This modular harness means each light is just simply plugged in, making replacement very easy.
Spring Assist Gates
Every PJ utility gate has spring assist standard. Spring assist gates take all of the strain out of lifting and lower a utility trailer gate. Many other manufacturers don't include this spring assist feature making the use of the gate quite a chore.
Spring Loaded Gate Latches
Our "J hook" gate latches are spring loaded and just need to be lifted to unlatch the gate. This means you will never have to try to keep up with loose lynch pins while you load your trailer.

Tube Frame Gates
We build the outside frame of every PJ utility gate out of 2" x 2" square tubing. This makes the gate much more rigid and durable when compared to an angle frame gate. Angle frame gates have a tendency to twist and warp, leading to premature failure of the gate. Also, each gate has handles on both sides making it even easier to raise and lower, without a chance of pinching your fingers.
Whether it is a single or tandem axle, all PJ channel utilities feature a wrap tongue. This means the tongue is extended to the front of the fender, significantly increasing the strength and rigidity of the entire frame.

Lifetime LED Tail Lights
Every PJ utility trailer features Lifetime LED tail lights standard (model year 2017 & newer). LED lights are not only brighter but they are also faster, draw less current, and last longer than incandescent lights. Our LED lights are so reliable they feature a lifetime warranty.
