Best price on a Prorock 44 ultimate?

Against my bank account's wishes, I'm in the market for a Prorock 44 to replace my sad (and possibly bent) little 30. Who has the best deal going on them all loaded up with an ARB, 5.38s, RCVs, and Reid knuckles shipped to my door?

I would compare prices of a ground up PR44 to a Tera60.

You might be surprised at how close it is.

Unfortunately TF doesn't make a front 60 yet, and the Currie 60 is over $2k more plus I have to run 5x5.5 wheels. I'm 99% sure Prorock 44 front/Currie 60 rear will be plenty for my needs considering the biggest mountain in Florida is at Disney World

Disney can get pretty hairy if you dont pay attention to what you are doing.

I just bought a TeraFlex CRD 60 front last month.

It is set up to run a 5X5 or 5X5.5 bolt pattern and comes with steering.

Hit up John Williams (username: Impulse Offroad) for a quote. He had the best prices I could find.

I would be suprised if you are still at $2K difference when done.

Damn, I missed that the front had finally released! It might be helpful if Teraflex put it up on their site I'll check with John to see what he can do on price, though the list price is on par with Currie... not quite what I had hoped

Thanks guys, ended up going with a fully loaded Prorock through Northridge. David was able to get it built and out on the same day with a price that was too good to pass up.

Same as their site as long as you calculate 7% off instead of 5%. $5040 shipped (I believe) for a PR 44 ultimate w/ ARB, RCVs, 5.38s, Poly ball joints, 1310 yoke, and Reid knuckles. So sexy

Thanks,

Everything. Hahah. The axle tubing is much thicker, thus much stronger, more ground clearance than the stock D44. But yeah I agree, very expensive. Not to say that it isnt worth it, because I certainly believe it is. A girlfriend, or wife could obviously never understand why that cost is justifiable! Mine certainly would not, (unfortunately).

Since we have the pr44 price, do you mind telling us your tera60 price?

Nice turd!!!! Hahaha. Oh well. I think the D30 is more than sufficient for most of us. If you doing king the hammers every weekend, not so much. But a small investment of a couple hundred bucks to add gussets, inner tubes, truss is more than prudent. Plus, I mean how common are R&P failures as is? I would imagine not so much. But certainly a weak point no doubt

It was part of a big package of parts so I don't have the detail down to the $ but I am confident you could get into one for another $1,500 over the Pro Rock price mentioned above.

We've got just over $5k for the PR44. Clicking on the link below from Teraflex says their axle is $7,350.
http://www.rme4x4.com/showthread.php...r-CRD60R-Axles

$7,350 - $5,040 = $2310
Unless you can get it for much less than the MSRP, the difference between the 2 is a premium lift kit!

So, the CRD60R front can be had with a 5X5 bolt pattern. I thought all one ton front axles were only 5X5.5. This makes things easier.

Edit. After looking at the Tera Flex website I cant find a CRD60R front axle.

I'm not challenging anyone's choices just offering a reference.

Per my message above i would estimate that your math is about $800-$900 off on the difference.

I don't think they have them up yet???

Tera offers a unit bearing front end with a full time hub (no lockout).

It is dual drilled for both patterns.

There are more pics on my build thread:

Yeah, it's a painful hit for sure! My TJ was only $5k for the whole damn Jeep too Oh well, I wanted something that will last forever and fix all of the issues than come from running extremely heavy 37s on stock axles.
