Today, we're going to be taking a look at and installing Dexter's Replacement Hubs for 3,500-lb axles with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern.

That's a perfect application for it, since you often have to back that boat down into the dock and it's going to get wet.What's cool about this hub is it does come with races included, and the races that come included with it are pre-installed, which is nice because they're a press fit. So, it's nice they got that out of the way. That's a part where you definitely could cause a mistake when driving the race in and score up the surface, and you don't want to do any of that. more

Oftentimes with your axle head idler hubs, if there's more than one axle, there will be brakes on our other axle. more

The weight capacity is usually going to be the best guide to help us selecting our idler hub. However, we can always contact the manufacturer with the serial number to get specific such as bearing information in grease seals. So if you're wondering why you would be installing idler hubs on such a large 5,200 pound axle, it's because chances are you're either looking to swap from hydraulic drum brakes or electric drum brakes to hydraulic disc brakes, which you can see we have the disc brake mounting flange here.Keep in mind the rest of the components for a disc breaking assembly are going to be sold separately here through etrailer. more

Review of Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums - Hub - DA54FR

Ellen: Hey, everyone. I'm Ellen, here at etrailer.com, and today, we're going to be taking a look at the Dexter Axle. This is going to be an idler hub for your axle face, so it replaces any kind of worn out component that you might already have, it gives you a new axle face to attach your wheel to the axle.So it's going to be an e-coating there to resist any kind of rust and corrosion. As far as the application this will work for, it works for trailers with a 2100 pound axle capacity or 2,100 pounds. The bolt pattern is going to be five on four and a half, so if we go from one of those bolts to the exact opposite side, that's going to measure four and a half inches. That gives us five on four and a half and then this is going to have a half inch bolt design with a weight capacity of a thousand pounds.All the bearings, races and seals, those are going to be sold separately. more

But outside of that, everything is going to be new and fresh and something we really won't have to worry about for quite a while.Now in the package you're going to have a EZ Lube spindle cap, just like this, and the standard spindle cap. more
