  1. We have a rolling trailer! We were able to slide off all the brake business without to much issue. The bolts cooperated nicely (Dewalt impact wrench). The brake lines did run in a bracket that did not come on the new axle so i'll be finding a solution for that. We had to take a sawzall and cut the brake line bracket off. The brake line pictured on this post did have a bit of oil around it. The other one was very clean so possible damage and will be keeping an eye on it.

  4. The axle has arrived! It's not painted so will be determining the best method of addressing that. More to come! Fun starts now
