New Axles

We just had new dexter axles put on our 2009 3605 Montana. We we’re the lucky ones that bid on them at the fall rally. Took a lot longer to build than I thought it would but worth the wait. We can now make our trek south. The folks from Dexter axle were wonderful to Work with. They did a great job and went beyond helping . They had a few little issues but worked thru them and kept me informed all the time. Now can enjoy the upgrade for our travels.

Randy, Glad to hear you got your new Dexter axles and that they did a good job on your unit in the way of installation. It may have cost you some money but I'm sure the new axles and suspension will be worth the time and money. Take care, have a good trip South and hope to see you at next year's Fall Rally.

Good deal. Just a word - retorque those U-bolts again after a few hundred miles as they often loosen.
1/2" are 65 - 87 lb ft
9/16 are 75 - 100 lb ft

Thanks for the tips I always check things easier to check than fix or replace on the road.
