Either you are mechanically inclined ore your not. The fact you had to ask told me that you can not do it. Its ok, not every one has this ability. Some people just have to pay.

I had a Continental axel break inside the hub on year six.The axel was very thin walled and rusted from the inside.
Replaced with 1/4 inch wall axel,which has held up well.
Contact EZ Loader and request heavier (upgrade) on the axel.
Should not be expensive.
Get the spare tire with the hub mounted.
As others have indicated grease the hub studs and carry thin wall socket and breaker bar for your lugs.
Torque wrenches are not expensive if you want to go that route and get the foot/pounds right..

His boat, his money, his build. He's been given the info. His choice. While I agree that there are many trailers out there superior to the ez, it is a pain to accomplish this. I just went through a similar deal on my build earlier this year. I opted for a premium trailer and it's been pointed out it has flaws. As a matter of fact, I'll be rewiring my trailer tonight because of bad lights that were installed. The manufacturer sent me replacements and offered to pay for them to be installed but I can do it so I didn't want to run up a bill on the manufacturer just because I could. At the end of the day Ryan, its your boat and your build. Take all advice heeded with a grain of salt and make the best decision. I had firmly ordered the ez with Frank A about a dozen times and finally told him to cancel the trailer, because I would be purchasing a sport trail. He gladly took it off my build and we set the boat on when I arrived. Wasn't a big deal. So, with that being said, if you decide you want to swing by and pick up a trailer on the side of the road that has daisies growing out of the hubs on the way to NC, it's your build. do with it as you please.if it should happen to break down..... At least you'll have the daisies!!QUOTE]
And who doesn't like Daisies or was that Daisy:grin

I spoke to Chad at Rolls Axle today. Price was really good, $2750 or so for the 189. He said they have made improvements that prevent the trailer from floating as they did in the past. He also said they could design the rubber piece in the suspension precisely to the weight of my loaded rig to prevent the hull damage issue you sometimes see on the forums about them.
The rolls axle also has adjustable bunks that support the hull best. I mentioned it to Frank and he confirmed that the only known issue with them is the floating, which the claim to have addressed.
I will be following up further and posting more here.
Pete, is it true you want to buy my Carolina Skiff? I was surprised when I heard that.
