don't blame you on not wanting to waste money on it, also swapping a diff on it would also add extra resistance

well heres an update got a ton done tonight

First i got new value stems in the rims and got the tires and rims cleaned up so no more leaks. i got home and put them on and flipped the trailer over and relized... it was way to tall.

well them i back it into the garage and got it supported to flip the axle over.
its was like this

so i used my rafters and my big ratchet straps to lift the rear up. i really need some big pipe stands lol

got it flipped and the lights put on and wired

Eventually im going to put a piece of rectangular stock across the back and put flush mount led lights so i can have running, brake, turns, and back up lights

then i took the grinder and ground off all the little bolts on the deck from the old deck and got it all cleaned off for new deck to be put on tomorrow.

im going to add to stake pockets in the front and add a 2-2.5 foot wall to keep rocks off the quads and w.e else might be throw up from the road.

things that need done yet.

1. safety chains
2. deck put on
3. stake pockets installed
4. wall built in front
5. get a jack for the front
6. once deck is on install some tie down points for the quads
