I agree!

it was the only truck we have running good enough, was heavy enough, and reliably enough to make it to Kansas city and back.

I don't ever think I have seen an 8 lug trailer axle for anything less than 7k, they usually go 6 lug for 5k and I have seen some 8 lug rated at 5k but those were special ordered like that and they looked just about exactly the same as the 7k axles I have seen. Never took em apart so I don't know.

But yah those axles wheels and tires would set you back a pretty penny, whole thing is worth it just for that stuff

I haven't seen one rated under 7 either. I just wonder what theyre rated for.
yeah just the parts alone are worth more than I paid for it.

I had a friend buy an old burnt out trailer like that well it was a bit older. You would be amazed at the things people wanted off it.

He sold 4 good windows he had for like 500 bucks!!!!!!

Basically made close to a grand on it paid for a good chunk of building his trailer

Yeah, you couldn't buy one of those axles for what you have into it. You did well.
