Andy at Inland RV was helpful and great support for our 72 Overlander. Even had a sale and saved $1000 over what I had planned to spend. All bolted right in with over size brakes,,

Got mine from Andy at Inland. They were incredibly helpful. Only thing with mine was I had to drill a hole in the frame, and weld my own shock mounts on the axle. No big deal if you're handy... Don't know if that's still the case today or not. This was over a year ago. My total experience with Inland was excellent. I also read a lot of good stuff on here about Colin Hyde. I don't think you'd go wrong either way.

If you do go with Inland, and you have to weld on your shock brackets, I documented the process fairly well with pictures and all in my rebuild thread...

-Red, glad he's past it...

I got mine from Andy at Inland RV. I bought the Dexter axle made to fit, the electric brake assemblies, his wheel balancer discs, and shocks . Then I had everything installed by Rod at C & G trailer in Bellflower, CA.
The trailer tows smoothly and now my many rivets are staying nice and tight and tires are wearing smoothly.

I am guessing people only read the last post.

I think Andy at Inland is the greatest. But it's not so economically feasible for someone from the New York area to drive to California to have work done. I wonder what shipping would be if you are doing the work yourself

Colin is MIA. Can't even leave him a Voice mail as the box is full.

I ordered mine from Andy, and I live in Florida... They actually come from Dexter (or whoever it is that makes them). Pretty sure that Andy calls them up with the specs, they make them and ship them to you... At least I believe that's the way mine worked. So it's not California to where you live, but the nearest Dexter shop to where you live...

-Red, known to be wrong sometimes...

Inland told me yesterday if you buy the complete axle the shock studs come welded for you. If you buy the bare axle you have to weld the studs yourself.

I had luck emailing him before. He is most likely swamped with work.

That's sweet! I bought the complete axle and had to weld my own shock mounts, but that was a couple years ago...
