Absolutly. When you order your axle, you pick what weight rating you want.

While you can of course stick any axle you'd like on there (rating-wise). It sorta begs the question: How much stuff do you plan on cramming in that Boler??? Assuming the '17-er weighs about 1500lbs, that leaves 1500 lbs worth of stuff to cram in there. That's a lot cans of chili. I'd think the wood floor would give out long before the axle did.

Hi Mike
The Boler weight is about 2350lbs Dry. I have added some weight during my renos.As you can see this would put me on the line.Reason I asked was to get a bigger safety margin.:)
