cargo trailer axle change

I want to run the same size tires on my 5X10 foot cargo trailer as my TJ. I have a set of steel for my TJ with 3.75 BS I have run on my TJ and some 33X12.50 TrXus MTs.

I am also considering doing a spring over on the trailer but not sure if that could cause stability issues or problems if I load up the trailer?

I want to get the axles slight wider than the previous one so I don't have any issues with back spacing.

I am looking for advice from anybody here that can offer it.

I believe my Jeep bolt pattern is 5 on 4.5, this axle is that pattern, any thoughts on this axle? They have the hub also in star pattern. Is one hub design better than the other?

88 x 74 Idler Axle, 3,500 Lbs

01 TJ, 34 Super Swaper 34x10.5 bias, Winch, locked, belly up, some armor.
