Any Dads out there running an older tilt trailer may want to inspect the tilt bolt!

I got a gift today that I thought I'd share!

That was my gift! Started on bearings this morning and ended up with a new axle, fenders, 3 new wheels and tires including a custom spare bracket then dry loading by winch it all let loose. Winch stand broke and bolt sheared off at the same time . I was truly gifted it was all within welding and a power source.

At 75 on the interstate, it could have been very nasty for more than just me!!

Every tilt trailer is counting on that one bolt for the whole rig minus the winch strap connection!

Lucky day for you.

This is what pre-used checks/inspections are all about, catching this stuff before it ruins the day. In my early days of airboating I learned the hard way.
