As they say- we like pictures here. Once you get out, post back with a 1st trip trip report.

I was wondering about that! I figured it was not gonna be that easy. We looked today and thought if we are gonna trade up to a Cedar Creek This is probably NOT a mod we want to do

Better look real close at the bearings you get. Very, very few small bearings, like your axle bearings, are made in the USA anymore. Even Timken makes many of their tapered roller bearings overseas or Mexico.

That is correct, especially after Gambrinus was shuttered around ~2012. Further, many of their boxed bearings with "Made in the USA" on them are not. They are assembled in the USA, but not completely made here. The housings/carriers are, but the bearings themselves are made overseas. Only the few still wearing "Timken" and "Made in the USA" on the housing/carrier are made entirely here and the number of those are dwindling. The vast majority of bearings are produced in China and India today.
