    I am building a portable boat bar that I can take to backyard parties, consequently I need to remove the axle so you can walk behind the bar (I cut the transom and bottom out of the boat). This system seems like the perfect solution, glad I ran across your critique as you brought up some things I hadn’t thought of such as twist and that whether the frame is true. I think this will work by addressing the issues you have pointed out, thanks for all the great info. Tim Bogle

    Your comment about the axle beam making not axle less is not quite true. The axle beam sits just below the mounting surface well above the wheel center of the lifted and straight spindle versions and would still have increased ground clearance in the dropped axle version to a conventional dropped axle.

    I am still wondering I cannot find any info on how thick the mounting plate or what kind of frame would be required. I’m building a 4×8 2000 pound trailer using these timbren right now. I’m hoping my 13 gauge design is enough the bolts they provide are barley long enough to go though there product and 1/8 in plate. So we will see.

      13 gage seems thin to me for the points of attachment. You might use something between to spread the stress. Either way, don’t constrain yourself to bolts they may provide. Get the bolts that properly do the job. Good luck.
