I wonder if anyone else sells a flexiride axle?

Dale,

My tech is too strong for your link. I run a script blocker in Firefox as well as pfBlockerNG. By the time I whitelist and enable scripts, it's disappointing to find that you just Googled something. People that try and keep their machines secure would prefer the link for the "challenged" as it's an encrypted connection (https) that doesn't require any unknown scripts to run.

I finally got me some closure at least. I got tired of trying to get them to take care of the problem so I went to where I should have in the first place. I went to J&I manufacturing in Madill, Oklahoma and they had the hub for $12.50. I could have gotten the 3500# axle for less than the 2000# axle I put on my trailer. The next trailer I build I am going to build ground up and get all the metal supplies at J&I as they have the best prices anywhere in this area on the metal and parts needed. So I would recommend anyone in North Texas and Southern Oklahoma pay them a visit. As for Southwest Wheel I won't recommend them for anything. but getting a big hassle and headache dealing with them.

I didn't see this thread until after I got my axle from SW. I did see the Google reviews, but if I recall they centered around internet orders. I was in Dallas and stopped by to get my axle. The counterman was friendly, got the order processed quick enough and around back I went to pick it up.

When the guy brought it out to me, it was an idler axle even though I bought one with brakes. He took it back to correct it and in the meantime I looked into the sack that contained the hardware. It contained 9 lug nuts for a 5 on 5 hub. :duh:

Obviously, QC is not a priority for them.
