Rebuilt Pickup Axles Used On Trailers
Clair Wilson and sons at Wilson Seedtime and Harvest, Winchester, Ill. needed a couple of wide, heavy axles for a couple trailers they were working on. Instead of buying new ones, they modified the axles off Ford 3/4-ton and 1-ton pickups.
  They removed the differential from each axle, leaving 1 ft. of axle on each side. Then they machined both ends of the axle stubs, slid them inside a larger diameter pipe, and welded everything in place. They also welded a fitting to the center of the pipe for adding oil to lubricate the bearings in the wheel hubs.
