Recommended Axle Upgrade from Dexter Torflex # 9 for 6 on 5-1/2 Inch Hub Compatibility


I want to switch my dexter axel bolt pattern to a 6x5.5 what parts do I need to make this happen? Dexter axel #9 5bolt to 6x5.5 Thanks


Expert Reply:

I reached out to Dexter to confirm the proper hubs for a # 9 axle. There are not any 6 bolt options available from any of our manufacturers that fit your spindles. We have 5 on 4-1/2 inch like you already have and 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern only for your size spindle.

If you desire to upgrade to the 6 on 5-1/2 inch, I recommend replacing your axles. If you go with the Timbren Axle-less System like # ASR3500S05, then you can use the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 10" Diameter - 6 on 5-1/2 # 84656UC3-EZ and the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35-SA.
