There are so many choices 1310 or 1350.
Factory flanges or aftermarket

I want to have the strongest shaft with the least amount of problems.

I am running them on my JKR with 37s and haven't had any issues. Tom Woods treated me well. When I ordered them as I had them made to order and had them in my hands in less than a week. I've heard good things from other manufacturers but no first hand experience.

Currently running stock shafts.

I ran Tom Woods shafts in my past Jeeps and never had any problems.
When time comes this Jeep will run the same.

I ran Tattons on my old JKU and I'm running Woods on my current JK. No issues with either.

Adams here and very happy so far. A number of folks I ride with are also running the Adams now and all have been happy with them. I went 1350 rear and 1310 front. Will go with Adams on my TJ build with 1310s front and rear. The 1350 rear gets really close to the River Raider gas tank skid though.

I have jeeps. I do shit to them.

Adams 1310. The 1st rear they sent was too short. Had a replacement in less than a week from one coast to the other. No problems with the shafts. the front keeps the stock flange on the axle, the rest get new yokes.

grease-able shafts, Yes
grease-able u joints, NO - grease-able U joints sound good but grease-able means hollow, which means not as strong as solid.

Get one with replacement yokes as well.

I am running Tattons, but don't think I can recommend them.
The rear had to be rebuilt after about 10,000 miles and the front is starting to make noise now. (about 15,000 miles)

That explains why I could not find them on your web site, even thou they are listed on 4 wheel parts web site.

I have other TeraFlex parts on my jeep and have been very happy with them.

Replaced the factory Rzeppa joint for $150. It went out 2000 miles later. Went with Adams and it's working great.
