Well we are safe at home after an eventful trip. As I posted earlier we lost a wheel bearing coming down Bozeman Hill. While we had fits and starts getting the axle and the correct bearings to Livingston; Whistler Towing who brought safely off of I90 and did the repair work, we couldn't have treated us better. I've never had a business go to such lengths to make our wait in as painless as possible. Without reservation I give them my highest recommendation.

Mike,
What axles did you have installed?
Looking to have new axles and springs installed on our 337RLS, it has Dexter on it now.

I just got a Dexter installed, Doc. It was an exact replacement for my third axle. Weight rating was 5200 on the original and I replaced with the same. I should have gone with the 7000 pound replacement. It came from Redneck. My shop did a great job on securing and replacing it. 400 out the door.

Glad to hear you are home safe and sound. Smoke is so bad up here we can look at the sun with no problem, just a big red ball. The whole NW is burning up, I've lost count of all the fires in Wash., Idaho and Montana. Not to forget British Columbia.Dave

Doc, replaced with the exact Dexter 5200. Looking at independent suspension and disc brakes in the future. Thought about upgrading the load rating, but time was starting to be an issue. Dave, the smoke was starting to get a lot worse Thursday afternoon when we left. When we drove by Sheridan, WY the Big Horns weren't visible. Really a sad situation.
