My new trailer has Jeep wheels on it. I want to convert it to Toyota so my spare will work in all places. The trailer manufactuere suggested I use Dexter plates on my 3500lb trailer axles as they are the best.

I tried google, anyone know of a local place to get the plates or possibly do the conversion?

I see, I was putting in Toyota with the search but I needed to put the lugs and spacing. Thanks Kevin:thumb:

You know what would be sweet, but alas also heavy, would be if you were to just get another front 80 axle and put that on your trailer. 4.88 gears and everything... right down to the steering arms. In fact being able to steer your trailer manually on occasion would be about the coolest thing ever, the rest of the time you just have it bolted up so it's straight.

but think of the spare potential... :)
