Another front JK Axle!

Just looked under my 09 rubicon JK and found a nice crack in the front axle!!

I have already replaced the front axle tube before... I went with a new factory one and guessed the C'S and sleeved it as well.

Now I am back to where I was before!!!

I do have some good offset wheels. I guess I needed a truss as well..

Now looking to upgrade the 44 housing or maybe a Dana 60?


I did weld it up for a temporary fix for now..

The crack it about 2 inches away from the pumpkin on passenger side...

Any input would be great.... Of who of what to go with?

^^ x2

I'd personally do the reg PR44 and modify an Artec truss to fit. $2,200ish for extra insurance is a good investment in my book.

Since you're cracking the stock tubes with sleeves welded in, I suggest going stupid overkill and do the PR44 HD + Artec truss. In your case, maybe it's not stupid overkill

Sorry to hear about the axle - I hope the next one, whether a PR44, Tera44, or a 60 does the trick.

With that I had a question - are you running the 38x14.5 MTR?

It sounds like I am going to go with dynatrac PROROCK 44 as it is super beefy and will come with all my stock brackets welded to it ready to go in!!!!

Thanks for everyone looking into helping me with my choice!!!!

In the end I don't want the jeep to be a rock crawler but just be able to do lite wheeling, drive it to Mexico with a jump or 2 in the mix!!!!

Options :
.5 HD Wall Tube thick YES!!!!
Do I want Extra Caster YES!!!!

Thinking about selling my PR44. Never been off the road with it. Has 513 gears, with the Jeep E locker.
