    Looks to be a great buy, and for $16 they can match your rig's track width.

    This particular kit would cost me $255.99, minus shipping. So I took the time to add everything up. IF everything was bought from your local TSC, it would cost $429.89 plus sales tax. They generally have everything in stock, including the correct width axle to tow behind a Jeep (58").

    However, the fenders and coupler would be of no use to me (as I would make my own), knocking the total price down to $314.92, still more than this kit would cost, pending shipping. I tried to call this number for Shipping: (256) 974-2990 and was told the number was not available. So now I can't give an accurate comparison on pricing.

    So out the door TSC would be $451.38
    Online Trailer Kit -shipping $255.99

    I hope shipping and any sales tax would be under the $185.39 difference!

    So i think I may order this axle kit to start my new build.

    Axle sold with five or six Lug hubs, bearings, races, grease caps, 25-1/4"x1-3/4" four leaf double eye springs, u-bolt kit, single axle hanger kit and lug nuts (Free Shipping) $221.34

    This a 3500 lb axle.  Only going this route to get a little bigger bearings and wheel mounting service. My last trailer I used a 2000 lb axle and the hub face did not work well on my wheels. I had to make a spacer plate to go between the hub face and the rim so it would mount flush.

    Havent priced out TS yet but from what I remember this seems like a good price
