Ultra Tow stub torsion axles from Northern Tool

Has anyone used these axles to build a TTT frame? Seems like a great way to build your own or customize a trailer.

Adding the complete hubs (item 572251 easy lube hubs) and a brake kit (7", item 21489) would make up a complete 2000 lb axle kit with brakes for around $360.

If anyone has used these I'd like to hear about your experience with them.

Or even if you just have an opinion on using these I'd like to hear it.

They do not appear to have provisions for brake backing plates and in the Q&A section under the specs it says they are not compatible with electric brakes.
