This galvanized boat trailer axle is manufactured by Dexter Axle and has a 3500 lb. weight capacity. Dexter Axle galvanized boat trailer axles are Hot-Dipped Galvanized for optimal corrosion resistance and superior protection from salt water. Dexter Axle is a leader in axle manufacturing and features AMERICAN MADE PRODUCTS. These axles are made of 2 inch x 2 inch x 1/4 inch thick square tubing.
The tapered spindle design on the 3500lb axle accommodates the following bearing and seal sizes:
-Inner Bearing - 68149 or 1 3/8 inch inner diameter
-Outer Bearing - 44649 or 1 1/16 inch inner diameter
-Grease seal - 1.719 inches inner diameter
The spindle features a Stainless Steel Wear Sleeve to allow for long term protection for your seal surface. This ensures your seal surface won't corrode away, meaning it will not pit or rust which would normally lead to letting water into your hub. Dexter Axle spindles also feature an E-Z Lube system, which allows easy greasing and regular maintenance of bearings. The grease travels through the center of the spindle and pushes out the old grease forward towards the front of the hub and out your dust cap, therefore replacing the old grease with new fresh grease. A castle nut and spindle washer are included on each spindle.
Our Axles DO NOT REQUIRE DRILLING OR WELDING!
Our MADE IN THE USA , Proprietary and Patent Pending Adjustable Spring Seats allow for adjustment to your specific measurements. These Hot-Dipped Galvanized Adjustable Spring Seats mean your axle will last longer, with no holes for saltwater and corrosion to hide. These Galvanized Adjustable Spring seats are included free of charge with the purchase of your axle.
Galvanized Axle Features:
Galvanized Axle Measurements:
This is a Straight axle with brake flange (meaning you can attach brakes to this axle).
Hub Face (Axle Track) refers to measuring from the OUTSIDE FACE of one hub to the OUTSIDE FACE of the opposing hub ACROSS the axle. Refer to axle measuring video for assistance.
Spring Seat Measurement refers to the measuring of your leaf springs from the center of one spring, across the axle to the center of the opposing spring. Getting assistance with this measurement from a friend is recommended. Refer to axle measuring video for assistance.
The Spring Seat Measurement is very important to ensure the safe and proper installation of this axle. If your Spring Seat measurement does not fall into the specified range, we cannot guarantee the successful installation or performance of your axle. Using a spring seat measurement that is too narrow will likely lead to your axle bending. Using a spring seat measurement that is too wide will lead to your tires rubbing on your trailer frame and/or leaf springs. Please verify that your Spring Seat Measurement falls into the range specified to avoid any problems.

Trailer Axle Project Check List:
This is an excellent axle. I love the fact that I don’t have to drill holes in the axle to mount the leaf springs. I also love the fact that I can mount the springs above or below the axle depending on my rig configuration. This gave me a lot of freedom in my custom RV design. The stainless steel spindle with the E-Z lube system is top notch and gives me some peace of mind about the 1000+ mile trips coming up. The free shipping is also a big deal. Most of the online stores I checked out charge as much for shipping as the cost of the axle. Last comment, doing business with Sturdy Built TP was a pleasure. They were very helpful with phone questions and my order shipped 4 hours after I placed it.

I found it easy to navigate the website and find the items I needed to complete my boat trailer project. The videos were helpful for choosing the correct axel and a few remaining questions were answered by a very helpful and knowledgeable support staff.
My order arrived quickly at a surprisingly low shipping cost. I’m satisfied with the quality, service and price.
