Hola,

We've got a limited supply of both JK Dana 30 and JK Rubicon front 4340 shafts. The 44 Rubicon shafts are the only correct design on the market - we maintain the 1350 style joint rather than downsize to the 760.

As always 10-Year Warranty.

Pics in a day or so.

Thanks,
Ron

Ron

More specific?

Comparing stock vs. our Alloy shafts will be dimensionally the same, just different material, heat treat and full circle clip compatible.

Comparing our Alloy 44 Rubicon JK shafts vs. other aftermarket 44 Rubicon JK shafts will show a significant (1350 vs. 760) larger u-joint on ours vs. others.

I'll get some pics to illustrate.

Yeah I was reading that basically the Rubicon44 and Sahara 30 are the same strenght due to them using the same parts. It's only strongest at the weakest point. Well the same weak parts are used in both!!!

Hey Ron,

Do you any inside scoop you would like to share about 5.38 gears? I keep hearing Alloy USA will be releasing them any day. Can you tell I'm getting antsy? I've been waiting for these to come out so I can get some pep back in my step.

Thanks,

Mike

Just curious...what's wrong with the stock axles?

Nothing if you stay on the highway. If you wheel in rocks and mud, you might consider upgrading them. When wheels spin and then get traction, it is not uncommon to break something.

That's assuming one wishes to wheel in mud and rocks...for all other types of off roading, I understand the JK as is, is more then adequate...I guess we should make it clear, that if one wishes to offroad in a mine field, then all these expensive add ons, amounting to upwards of 2000 pounds worth of specialty shafts, undercarriage armour, big a$$ tires with exensive beadlocks, air lockers, etc., etc., ad nauseum is a requirement...when one adds up the total cash outlay, I wonder if buying an H1 is a better way to go.

Nobody's making you buy them. But for those who want/need them, here they are. :beer:

You would be suprised to find out how many have broken shafts when they weren't doing anything hard. Lots of shafts are broken because a cap gets loose and the bang. The shaft lets go. That being said, the majority of broken shafts that I have seen or heard of have been driver error and could have been avoided.

I'm sure this is the case with some, but in all the years of hard offroading with previous Wranglers and CJ's, I never had an issue with the shafts...is this another weakness of the JK?

No, Jk shafts are stronger than the older YJ and CJ shafts.

just ignore dusty. he just regrets his purchase, and now he's stuck with it, so he thinks everyone else should be unhappy with their JK too.
if i had a dollar for everytime dusty compared his ****ty JK to his indestructable YJ and CJ, i'd be able to buy half a tank of gas.

Ahhh...the consumate strawman....damn you're funny mcsnaught...I suppose I would be too...over exposure to mercury amalgum does lead to psychological disorders leading some to think one is a funny man...I suppose a hazard of the rank 'em and yank 'em crowd:stirthepot

P.S. I never owned a YJ...but then again, being a strawman means flirting with and distorting the facts.

The remainder has been edited so as to keep things civil...now, Captain...play nice;)
