Saturday July 6th I bought a M416 trailer from a nice guy in Denver, Colorado while driving home from a family trip to Santa Fe, NM. While the hubs had been "recently serviced" I'm one to not trust people and decided to pull them apart. The driver side looks like it had sat in water for some length of time previously but the passenger side was totally fine. No fault of the previous owner... the hubs had been serviced but they were not clean to my liking.
a quick trip to napa for some bearings, races, and seals and we're ready to rebuild. Join me while I gut the hubs, re-pack bearings, and reinstall the hubs and wheels onto the trailer.
coming soon are some 5x5.5 to 5x5 JL adapters (will be a different video) and i've already talked to a metal fabricator for a lid to support a roof top tent.
I've been looking for m416s since january and finally found one that wasn't destroyed and outrageously priced. These are a rare breed now, and I got one!!
