For the steel, I got my best price up at Midway Iron in St. Cloud. As for the drop arms, I build them myself. grin

If you are going 7' wide(outside), watch out for the outside measurements with the wheels. They can't go over 8'6" to be road legal. This means you only have 9" on each side to work with for the drop arms.

Thanks guys. Any suggestions on places to buy the spindles?

One other place you can get some parts for the frame system is through Rigid Hitch.

Anyone using aluminum for their frame? I am finding I can get aluminum for only 10% more than the rediculous cost of steel these days.
