Based on the information you sent, it looks like your inner bearings are Item # L68149 and outer bearings are Item # L44649 which are common for 3,500 lb trailer axles. I did not see in part descriptions the bolt pattern of your wheels but the most common patterns are 5 on 4-1/2, 5 on 5-1/2, and 6 on 5-1/2. I will make recommendations for all based on these bearings sizes. I have attached an article on "how to measure bolt patterns" in case you need it.

For a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern, I recommend the galvanized Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly, Item # 8-247-50UC3. This assembly is great for both freshwater and marine use. This assembly works with electric and hydraulic brake assemblies and comes with bearings, races, and a grease seal.

For a 5 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern, I recommend the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly, Item # AKHD-555-35-K. This assembly works with electric and hydraulic brake assemblies and comes with bearings, races, grease seal, grease cap, and lug nuts.

For a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern, I recommend the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly, Item # AKHD-655-35-K. This assembly works with electric and hydraulic brake assemblies and comes with bearings, races, grease seal, grease cap, and lug nuts.

For electric brakes, I recommend Electric Trailer Brake Kit Item # AKEBRK-35. For hydraulic brakes, I recommend Hydraulic Brake Kit Item # AKFBBRK-35-D.

If you have a different bolt pattern, different bearings, or have other questions, let me know and I will make correct recommendations.
