One day, while scrolling through the Motobilt website, I stumbled upon their Heavy Duty Trailer Fender Kit and knew I had to get a set. But why did I need new trailer fenders? That goes back to about nine years ago when I bought my trailer.
Old driver side fender
When I originally bought my trailer, I only knew a little about trailers other than that I wanted larger axles and brakes on each axle. So I bought a full steel deck with 5200lb axles and brakes on each axle. My Jeep fit in between the fenders, and I had zero issues at the time. I may have heard about drive-over fenders, but it was definitely not something I was thinking about when I purchased the trailer.
Getting the trailer cleaned up and test fitting the fenders
Fast forward to 2018, when I added new axles and moved up to 40s; after setting up the Jeep with the new axles and 40s, my friend Bob and I realized the Jeep was about 2 inches wider than the width between the fenders on the trailer. I knew I would have to do something down the road.
