CDN M101 and a Tepui Kukenam RTT

This is what I did this weekend to my M101 trailer...









Tomorrow is a jack leg and then some hydraulic struts...

Since the drop leg is a little short, I needed to install a trailer jack in order to level out the trailer when not hitched to the Jeep. Thought about a bolt on but I never seemed to be able to find one. It's always good to have a friend that can weld...





A little rattle can...



Add a bubble level...



Trailer jack installed...

Did you get a new axle to accommodate the jeep wheels?

The previous owner had already swapped the axle to a 5x4.5 Jeep bolt pattern. Currently running 31s, but eventually will swap out for some 33s on Moabs. I undid the SOA from the previous owner who was running 33s, but sold the trailer with stock Jeep steelies and some beat up BFG ATs.

When I do move up I'll redo the SOA and have to raise the pintle height to keep it level.

Ls and lots of trailer axles are available in 5x4.5 bolt pattern. All you need to do is buy a new axle with the right spring perch width and go to town, should be cheap, a whole solid axle kit from northern tool ipswich springs and everything is only like 200

I thought of that but with at least three full trailer paint jobs over the last 66 yrs it is going to be an all out war on that suspension. The biggest part I think will be getting the right width one to accommodate the wider wheels and tires.
