SOLID - Spyntec Hub Conversion - Jeep JK

Hey guys, i don't know if this has been discussed here on this board but if you have seen the SOLID - Spyntec Hub Conversion for the JK and was wondering what you guys think of it.

Here are the details:
Until now, new JK owners have been living with the idea that converting to a fixed spindle front axle wasn’t an option. With the implementation of ABS, and the new Electronic Stability Program (ESP), JK owners have been forced to accept the limitations that the unitized bearing front end has to offer. Larger tires and heavy accessories place unwanted stress on the factory assembly leading to an unfortunate and costly failure. Solid Axle Industries has created an option for the JK by adding it to our new SpynTec line of fixed spindle conversion kits. SpynTec kits restore the ability to service and maintain your vehicle as needed, while reducing the wear and tear to your driveline by allowing for the front hubs to be unlocked. Your ABS and ESP functions are retained with the combination of our uniquely designed hub and spindle. Our forged hub features a gear cut tone ring, while the forged spindle retains the factory ABS sensor mount. As with all SpynTec kits, your speed sensors are now completely sealed from harsh on and off road conditions. Names such as Timken, SKF, Warn, Chicago Rawhide and Spicer go into every Solid Axle SpynTec conversion kit.



Features:

-Forged hub with gear cut ABS tone ring.
-Forged spindle with integral ABS sensor mount.
-Includes all bearings, races, seals, and spindle nuts.
-Utilizes Warn premium locking hubs.
-Upgrades to the tried and proven 760X u-joints (also included) as well as 30 spline domestic alloy shafts.
-Features fully machined rotors with matching wheel studs.

Benefits:

-Eliminates unit bearing hub assemblies prone to breaking.
-As always, SpynTec conversion kits fully seal the ABS sensor and tone ring from contaminates on and off road.
-Increased fuel economy

I saw these at the SEMA show back in November, they looked well made. But you have to change wheels and rotors as they use 5 on 5.5 stud pattern, were as the JK use 5 on 5.

I have always been a fan of lockout hubs. Its will maybe a mod later. I want to see what other mods come out with stronger complete axle housing, maybe dana 60's. They do look nice though.

Who's pickin the banjo here?
