    Default Land Rover Trailer

    Go day all
    I have a 110 load bin that I have made into a Trailer to pull behind my Defender 300TDI. The rear differential
    Is still in but I would like to remove it and put a axle.
    What size axle do I get?

    You going to have a hard time finding a axle which is the same strength and gives less hassles. Personally I would keep the axle.

    I'd keep it complete, easy way to carry spare drive members, side shafts etc.
    Like About said you'll find it hard to find a stronger axel.

    That's a 109 load bin and has leaf springs.

    And doesn't an alternator need higher revs?

    Considering wheel size and the 4.7:1 diff ratio, at 60 km/h the propshaft will be doing around 2000 RPM. A crankshaft pulley on that with a belt to a standard alternator will easily charge the battery.

    I am sure you will get an axle within acceptable width from trailer parts suppliers like Burquip. The 5 bolt flange might be a problem.

    The advantage of the trailer axle will be less weight and more importantly you can get a braked axle. this will allow you to go higher than the unbraked limit of 750kg. You will not have a lot to spare with that ladder frame and axle.

    I would consider taking all the innards out of that axle, if you intend keeping it, for rolling resistance and weight.
