Sometimes I over think things
What would be the difference if it hits the ground onto rollers without damage, or if it hits the ground tearing off the stabs? Clearly the effect to the frame would be better with the rollers.
I don't know if someone else said it, but flipping the axles are for pros, not a DIY project. Might be the cheapest and easiest way to go, however.
I assume the BRIDGE is on the only way home??
1) upgrade to 5200# axles and springs if it has the 4400# ers (I will post how much higher mine is)
2) is it possible to use boards under the tires to lessen the angle while crossing the BRIDGE? OOPS... I read the other message... that is what he is doing now.
3) I am not sure where (or how) the rollers would be mounted, since they would have to be lower than the bottom of the stab to work, which are forward of the tail by a margin.
4) remove the stabs, but make brackets to simplify the process (slip on and off - no bolts)
5) find a place on the other side of the BRIDGE to keep / store the TH
Or, get a good shop to flip the springs to the top of the axles
