New Axles in Austin or Dallas

Has anyone bought replacement axles in Austin or Dallas? I am looking for a place where I can have them made and pick them up. Shipping seems like a real drag. I realize that the Duratorques slip right in, but they seem a little overpriced.

Perfect! My dad also recommended this place to me today. Looks like a winner.

This is old news, but I ended up ordering 2 Dexter Torflex axles. 3500lb each with 10" brakes. Here are the details (yours may vary)

80" Hub face to Hub face
61.5" Inside of frame to inside of frame (where mounting bracket touches frame)
High profile - reverse mount.
Standard hubs (no Nev-R-Lube)
