    Picked up an enclosed trailer the other day with 3500 lb axles under it (8.5x20) and I'm thinking about upgrading to the 5200 lb axles. I'll be hauling three ztrs so I figured I'd be better off with the heavier axles. Is this swap possible? and how much trouble will it be if it is? Thanks for the help guys. :usflag:

    not sure how much the swap would be. I know the upgrade at build is about $600. I'd expect them to hit you pretty hard after the fact though.
