Anybody with the dexter 45, I would love to know what those axles cost new as the dexter site isn't helping much.

By the time I was finished with my new dexter axle and my labor, about $100 worth of steel, I had about $600 including shipping of the axle.

To me, that was still good money spent on a good axle, the frame was reinforced and this will last until I am room temperature....

There my be less costly ways to do axles, but I build about a trailer a year and have gone to all dexter torflex axles, no more leaf springs and shackles and straight axles---that is 1950's technology....nothing wrong with the fifties, but using the torflex axles has resulted in better riding trailers, no bounce, better tire wear, etc....why not use the best?

I don't think Dexter sells direct You may have better luck contacting a local company that you, in turn, purchase the axle from.... like Red Neck. I purchased the Dexter 45 degree down locally here in Portland, OR from Potter Webster.

I want to lift my 2009 (or 2010, I cannot remember which), but my axle is welded, not bolted on... So much for the easy answer of the perfectcasita 3in lift.

What options should I consider? Thanks for the help.
