Load balanced right and riding level they do tow nice, real nice. I really considered going to larger tires
, mostly for back country camping and cooler running at highway speeds. Did a bunch of checking and figuring and in the end decided to go with totally stock. At times I wish I had gone with 5 bolt hubs (4 bolt brake hubs are not an in-stock part) Maybe in a decade or two when the new axle
wears out someone else will do it different.
All I have to say is if I had gone through a blizzard towing the trailer I would probably be a widower. DW would have had kittens right before she had a heart attack.
Paying for the work of measuring for the axle
and welding, along with a little fabrication would run a pretty penny if hired done by a shop, but hey what's the point of knowing how and having a shop if you don't use it?
Glad someone that had done it was able to provide details to the OP.
