Why did you use the EZlube hub drum kit and not the standard hub drum on your M1101 axle?Agreed with above except and we started the process with a rubber deadblow hammer - hitting the cap at a downward and outward angle. Wasn't too concerned since converted the entire hub including new grease-able caps.
Sorry, just greaseable dust caps that were on the shelf and undamaged - which I don't use as such. I prefer to hand pack and lube the bearings.Why did you use the EZlube hub drum kit and not the standard hub drum on your M1101 axle?

I'm in the process of doing the same hub and brake change out that you did. So far it's all very straight forward and easy. However I'm hung up on the removal of the parking brake cable from the old brake backing plate. I don't want to destroy it so i've set it aside after quite a while of trying while it is tethered to the trailer.Sorry, just greaseable dust caps that were on the shelf and undamaged - which I don't use as such.

I used 22.5 deg. It did lower it a couple inches or more. Going with the 30” tires also lowered it more than an inch. I’ll measure it empty and post the new height.What ride height angle did you choose for your Dexter axle? From your photo it looks like it lowered the stock height by a few inches. Any specifications you could give would be great as I am looking to do the same conversion with my m1102.
I towed my trailer 2,000 miles behind my Tahoe with the shocks removed. It was only loaded with maybe 500 lbs of gear, but there was no noticeable change in the ride quality. It was an awful experience with near constant whiplash on the bumpier interstate roads in the midwest. I actually was experiencing a bit of buyers remorse.
So prior to the return trip I installed a #10 2,800 lb rated Dexter torsion axle. It is an entirely different trailer. Aside from the increased acceleration and stop distance required, I really don’t know that I am towing a trailer. It tracks behind the tow vehicle awesome. I am all around very happy with it.
I did what I thought was due diligence research and I found no simple way to buy a hard top that would fit or buy a tonneau cover that would fit in any configuration. I also considered having a piece of tonneau sewed at a sail or fabric shop and set up with snaps, and I couldn’t find what I wanted in the width I needed. My wife was more concerned about security, while my desire was to protect the contents from the elements.Bubba,
I like your topper can you give some information on it?
