Need help Trillium 4500 axle

Need help... Does anyone know what Dexter Axle was sued in a Trillium 4500.. Mine has some off brand axle and needs replacing.. There's a local dealer that sells Dexter axle's but said he needed to know which one.. I'm pretty sure it takes a 2500 lb axle but that's all I know, never changed out the axle before...........

Thanks David.. Now I'm more confused than ever.. Think I'll print off the entire link you posted and give that to my welder who is extending the frame and replacing the axle and let him figure it out...
