Before starting the build I set up a plan to keep myself on track with the funds.Everything so far (except the hub spacers) is going to plan and budget.
Once stage one is complete,it will be a few weeks till a few pay checks roll in and we get back on track.

My main goal is to have a trailer in useable condition being towed behind my TJ before my birthday.(yes it is a bday present from my wife and kids. )

Going to try and have a lid on before Christmas so the electronic's can be mounted in their proper place.
My list of things to have on trailer includes:
shelter
dry storage
solar power
inverter 110v
heater
hot water/shower
kitchen
SHADE


Need a good source for a roof top tent. Promise you will get a gold star if you could help me track down a good used one (does that even happen outside the movies?) PLEASE!!!!

If you don't mind, can you give a little estimate on how much all this has cost so far?

Some of those hydraulic cylinder lift arms? Like on the hatch of an SUV? It's all I can think of...

With the lid I have seen some that use hydraulic arms and can be opened from either side. That would be useful because you never know which way you may have to pull the trailer in to camp. Not sure of the mechanics on making a single lid open from either side though. I will see if I can find a few pics

Might remove a few of the leafs as soon as the build gets close to done. Just dont know how much stuff is going to go on her.plus,thinking of doing away with the axle and springs all together if I can't find some sort of answer on how to mount up stock TJ wheels.

It's important to me not to worry about running 2 different spares when hauling the trailer. Want the trailer to match the dead weight hanging off my tail gate.

Anyone out there smarter then my axle problem???

What is the current bolt pattern and diameter of the hub?

The trailer axle hub is a 5x5.5 with the large dust cap hub centric pattern. The TJ's is of course a 5x4.5 lug centric pattern.
Don't really know the size of the dust cap yet. Keep forgetting the measurement.will post that as soon as I get back to work in a few hours.
Thanks for the help. I just don't seem to find the real answer here on any search

You might be able to get a spidertrax spacer/adapter, but I'm not sure what the size of the hub opening is... That might be a conflict. Get the CJ to TJ/YJ conversion, as the CJ axles were 5 on 5.5.

measured and it looks like it's going to be close to a 3 1/8 - 3 1/4 inch dust cap. Big to say the least.
Got the spidertrax adapters in last week from 4wheelparts.Ended up sending them back because the hub centers were too small. dang it,forgot to take a pic of the fitment concern!

There is a lot of threads on how people run into this concern but no real answer when it comes to correcting it.My main goal here is to be able to run TJ rims,keep the hand brake set up,and not have the wheels sticking out 13 feet past the fenders......you know....cake and eating it too thing.
