    It's my new daily driver. It only happened this week. Tried being it last week but didn't work until this week when the price came down to the right spot. I'm smitten with it.

    I had seen it around town a few times and drooled over it every time. I'm stoked I was able to buy it.

    Yep. I think they are one of the best deals out there. About the only thing I would change would to repack the berrings with a quality grease. The grease they come with is good for a couple seasons, but should be repacked with something that smells more like grease. I'm not sure what the stuff is. I like to use the blue axle grease that you can get anywhere.

    Those are my favorite factory wheel. Centers can be had on fleaBay for not much. Likely you will get a slight rub at absolute full lock.

    When I put them together, I lose the folding feature and attach a full piece of plywood. No one ever folds them up anyways. They are just an accident waiting to happen, so I delete the feature and it makes the trailers much, much more stiff..

    You only need 3 wrenches and a pair of channel locks to put one together. Don't read the instructions either, just look at the pictures. Something is lost in translation when converted to English.

    That’s not a good idea. I’ve learned that just bolting things together all willy-nilly does not end well.

    I’m just being careful. Measure twice, cut once.

    Well, they don't come with the plywood, so you have to buy a whole piece anyways. Saves having to cut it in half as well.

    Yep. there is already holes in the frame to run bolts to hold down the plywood. I like to use a treated, exterior plywood.

    No you don’t. I took it home like this:

    Four 12” C clamps, and two ratchet straps held it in.

    Well I have to do it tomorrow if I want to install my lift. I have to move that bed shell to park my truck. I just needed that extra couple feet for my pneumatic hose to reach.
