How To Use Jeep Wheels/Tires On Off-Road Trailer


Hello, I am in the process of converting a 7x12 cargo trailer for to use as a small camper. My question is specifically about lifting/converting the trailer to run 33inch tires off of a 2020 Jeep Rubicon. I believe the wheels have 5 inches of backspace and are 5 on 5 bolt pattern. The trailer currently has a 3500# Dexter axle on it. Can you point me to the right ion of product to successfully mount these tires/wheels onto this haulmark cargo trailer?

I do have an option but in order to run larger off-road tires you won't be able to use a straight axle most likely due to the needed backspacing of the wheel. Therefore, the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension part # ASR2KHDS03 is what you need. This system has a 2,000 lb weight capacity but that's the only option to get the needed 5 on 5" bolt pattern. I have attached the options for this below.

Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-550-35-EZ-K
Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # AKHD-550-35-EZ-K and Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA
