Trailer hub includes lug nuts, inner bearing (L68149) and race, outer bearing (L44649) and race, E-Z Lube grease cap with plug and grease seal. Fits 3,500-lb axles.
Determining the Bolt Pattern
The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.
On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: 8 on 6-1/2 means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)
To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: 5 on 4-1/2 means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)
Measuring the distance (D) from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

Today we're going to review part number 84546UC3-EZ. This is the Dexter trailer hub and drum assembly for 3,500 lb EZ lube axles with the 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. Now this trailer hub and drum assembly is designed to fit on axles that have electric brakes. The drum would fit over the brake assembly on the axle. It does include everything showing here, the bearings, the races which are pre-installed in the hub, the grease seal, the grease cap and the lug nuts. Now this is designed for an EX lube axle, and what the EZ lube design is, it makes lubricating the bearings very simple. Basically, when this is slid over the hub and it's tightened down, and then you put the dust cap on basically what you can do is you can actually grease your bearings without having to remove the whole hub and drum assembly.
Basically you just remove this rubber plug that's in this center cap and you would have access to the zerk fitting. It would be on the end of the spindle of the axle and then you could put your grease kit on that and grease your bearings without having to disassemble the whole hub. Again, the application on this is most 3,500 lb EZ lube axles with electric breaks, it even includes the Dexter axles. The drum dimension; this is measured by the diameter, which would be 10 inches, this is the diameter, and then the width, which would be this measurement right here is 2 1/4 inches wide. I just want to show you that basically that measurement would also be, you can see 10 inches, and then just to drop it down and if we put the measurement on it this way you can see right at 2 1/4 inches wide. Basically, that would be the measurement also of the brake assembly that would be on your trailer axle.
So if you have brakes that are 10 in by 2 1/4, that's when it's meaning that this drum would fit over it. The bolt pattern again is 5, as you can see the 5 lugs, 4 1/2 in. The wheel studs they use are 1/2 in diameter. The weight capacity is 1,750 lbs. When you use this on one side, and another one on the other side, that would get you your 3,500 lb capacity. Now, the bearings that are included; the inner bearing right here, which would be L68149 that would go, and again the pre-installed race is right in there so that inner bearing would go right in like that.
Then with your bearing installed, you put your grease seal right in there, it's a double lipped grease seal. The outer bearing, which is part number L44649, that would just drop in again the pre-installed race that's already in the hub and drum. One everything is tightened down, you can put this included center cap. Again, this is a EZ lube center cap, I just want to show you how you can remove that. There's a rubber plug right in here, so if you just pull that rubber plug right out, and with it on there you can see that you'll have access to Zerk fitting, and when you're done greasing it, you put that plug back in to protect it. Then it also comes with the five 1/2 in lug nuts that are that are used to, when you're ready to put your wheels and tires on to your hub and drum.
Then you can just use these lug nuts to tighten it down. That should do it on the review on part number 84546UC3-EZ, it's the Dexter trailer hub and drum assembly for 3,500 lb EZ lube axles. .

I ordered a complete electric brake setup for my 6x12 Haulmark trailer and Timbren springs for my Chevy Silverado 1500. Etrailer is great to work with and at this point I have no reason to buy from anyone else!! The brakes are all Dexter parts which is what I wanted. They were very easy to install on the trailer with a bit of help from the etrailer video. The brakes work great and give me a much better feeling about stopping the trailer in a emergency situation and is much easier on my truck brakes. The Timbren springs springs were easy to install after I realized that the installation is not correct for a 2004 Silverado but could be right for a 2011. The springs work very well as long as I have a fair amount of weight on the truck or pulling a trailer with at least 200lbs of tongue wt. When the truck only has 3 or 400 lbs in it which is normal with a cap and bed slide, it rides quite a bit rougher than without the Timbrens. I think air bags would have been a better decision with varying weight loads 47572

I am very happy with the products I purchased and the service I've received from etrailer. I jump for joy when I see the "made in america" label on products. At first I was just going to buy wheel bearings but when I saw how reasonable it was to put a set of brakes on my 5 X 8 covered trailer that I use to carry my motorcycle (Harley Bagger) I couldn't resist. Since the initial purchase I have made other purchases from etrailer with the same excellent customer service and product quality. You get what you pay for! Thank you etrailer. PS: I love the instructional videos also. 39526
This is a Dexter OEM hub assembly, so it was manufactured per Dexter spec's and quality control. 142719

Fast shipping and top quality parts! Last summer I replaced all four brakes, hubs and bearing sets on my camper with these identical parts, but over-torqued one bearing and experienced an outer bearing failure on one spindle - almost lost the wheel. This unit is the same as I used previously and will replace the hub that was damaged by the bearing failure. I'm just waiting for warmer weather to install it - I won't be as aggressive on tightening the bearing this time. 116262

This seems like a good product and it was definitely a good price. Everything went together fine. Only problem was that I was missing the lug nuts on one of the drums. The packaging was a little suspect as well but it didn't affect this product. (Two 30 lb drums in a cardboard box playing pinball with two backing plate assemblies half way across the country) I got everything I needed and didn't spend a small fortune...good enough. 91660

Great price, fast ship. Ordered on Sat. Night and received on Tues. morning. Product is great quality. Only suggestion I would make is that they should include nuts for the backing plates. ( I ordered those as well) Anyone that is ordering these is usually replacing old rusty ones and can't reuse the old nuts. Other than that misunderstanding everything was great. Would definitely order from etrailer.com again. 29515

Overall , no complaints about the product for the price . Nice hubs but a bit cheap on the bearings . Everything fit fine and works as it should . My only and biggest complaint is the packaging - products this heavy need to be wrapped in cardboard before boxing - the box was severely damaged in transit and I had to replace 3 of the new lug nuts . Otherwise, great service and price can't be beat . 99559
by: Scott D.06/14/2014
Good price and great hardware. I replaced the cheaper bearings with ones from the local auto parts store for an additional $15.00 per hub, but having good bearings to match the quality of the hubs was important. I used these with the TruRyde Electric Brake Assemblies. Went on easy and with the help of the videos on etrailer.com, I felt very confident that the job was done right. 135579
Excellent quality and direct fit. Ordering complete backing plates made the install very easy by removing the four bolts on the back of the old plate and installing the new plate. Used a little brake cleaner on the drum and assembled the bearings; and the install was complete. E-Z lube the axle and bearing and done. Couldn't of been a better install and replacement. 26128

I have an '06 Dively car trailer and bought the 10" electric brake assembly 23-26, 23-27/Hub drum assembly 84546U3-EZ/ and Hopkins 12 volt battery. The parts came quick (as promised), they were packed well, very good quality. Everything bolted on with no problems. Mike from customer service was very helpful. I would highly recommend!

Just recently started using "etrailer" and have found it to be the best "one stop shop" for all things trailer related. My latest order was a hub and drum kit to carry as a spare. I was happy to find out that it was actually OEM. I love everything about this site. Great products, service, support, pricing and prompt shipping. I am a customer for life. 110422

I ordered a hub on a sunday. The order was filled and shipped on that same day and I received it within 5 days. They told me when it would be delivered and it was. I am very pleased with the service as well as the product. I would definitely recommend etrailer to friends and anyone else. Great service, great folks! 18413

Second axle done in as many weeks. If I didn't find etrailer and theses prices, help videos, etc.. I never would have done both axles.The hubs came with everything needed and the bearing races were already seated! Good value, fast shipping. Thanks again etrailer! I can now tow with confidence! 41578
Very pleased with the product. the fit was perfect. what you get for the money is amazing. the only slight drawback is that the bearings don't have any brand or part numbers on them, which leads me to think they may be of lesser quality. Again, what you get for the money is well worth it! 43885
by: Harry L09/04/2013
Excellent and made in the USA which you can't find anymore. Anyway, not on the trailer yet but looks like a perfect match and definitely need it as the ones on my trailer are completely rusted and definitely wouldn't trust the rusted ones going down the highway. Thanks. 98302
by: John C06/29/2012
Not installed yet, but everything shipped and arrived as expected. Only bought one side, but will probably get the other side from etrailer soon. Looks like the bearings are made in China, but I doubt anyone else in the world is making them any more. 46261
by: Bob Thomasson06/28/2012
Drum is OK, but the included bearings are very low quality and I won't use them. The price was cheap and cheap bearings were of course what is included. etrailer.com should offer a more expensive option of real bearings (Timken) like other places do. 45952
The Dexter brakes will go on a Dexter axle for an atv trailer. They are the high quality I expected from Dexter, but they need to be packed better. Thet destroyed the shipping box. But I am pleased with the product and delivery. 141225
Just as advertised. Ordered one day, delivered on 3rd day afterward with free shipping on a pair, along with a pair of brake assemblies. All marked "made in USA". I don't think you will beat their price, or quality, anywhere. 21082
by: John Z.08/30/2013
I'm happy with the products, although the way they were packaged was not so good. The box they were shipped in was way too big, and inside was a pile of drums and bearings and mashed up paper all on one end. 97741
by: Doug T11/14/2012
Wow........an American made product, just as advertised, with fast delivery, at a very reasonable price. You can't beat that!!! I will buy my trailer parts and accesories here........thanks, Doug 59440

For almost the same cost of having the original Drums resurfaced, I received Brand New - US Made - OEM Parts, with new Bearings, Lug Nuts, Seals, and EZ Lube cover. A No Brainer - Thank you! 31717
Made in the USA. True bolt on product. Easy install. If you are worried, just watch the video! Great price and fast shipping. Now I can do the other axle. Thanks etrailer. 41145

fast shipping. well packaged. nice heavy quality parts. went together as planned. best price i found so i was a little wary. no problems at all. thanx 96711
All arrives well packaged. Easier and cheaper than having drum turned. Finding someplace to do it transporting them and hoping they get it done right. 12614
by: Dale T.05/11/2014
Drum came as advertised. No problems. Would have liked to have had a better set of bearings than the Chinese ones that are included in the kit. 129988
by: Rob T.05/06/2013
Would like set to have included new spindle washer, nut, and retainer. New dust cap would not insert so had to reuse old one. 79119

Product was as advertised, received promptly, nothing missing, nothing damaged, well packed, same excellent etrailer service. 27223
by: Barry W07/25/2011
The only thing that would have made the hub better would have been for the assembly to come with the spindle washer tang. 20243
by: James N.03/25/2011
Fast delivery. You should include a tang washer with this product. I liked the races already pressed in, thanks. 10396
