Yeah, just U-bolts... But I'm not that fast of a mechanic... I'm considering this as part of a future mod which would also include installing [b]Shock Absorbers.

I also want to remove the wheels and have them powder-coated a bright [b]RED with chrome baby-moon hubcaps. Can I get white sidewall tires for 12" wheels?

Frederick, I had another thought about this as well... the tongue height on new trailers is roughly 18" as an industry standard. That wasn't of course, always the case. If yours is taller than that, then it's definately reason to lower it. If it's about 18" as-is, then I'm not sure I'd worry about it.
