Best bolt in 1 tons

Looking at getting bolt in 1 ton axles. Is there any company to avoid or stay away from? Was looking at

http://www.quadratec.com/products/52461_200X_PG.htm

http://www.currieenterprises.com/CES...t.aspx?id=2996
http://rocksolidperformance.com/inde...prodserv_axles

Are the g2 axles currie axles but they are setting the lockers gears in them? These are not the places i would purchase them from just getting ideas on what to get and who to get them through. I still have my 41.5 iroks so goal is to build to use them on my jeep. Or are there any cheaper alternatives that are just as good or close? Doing work myself but like to keep things simple don't have a garage built at new house yet.

I'm a Currie Rock Jock fan, and I've had excellent service from them as well.

What ever you do go Rear Full float. Reason why is cause the weight of our JK's and the leverage of a 40+ tire on a flange (semi float) axle, your just asking for bent flanges. I've bent a few. Sure your gonna hear from Semi float guys that they have never bent one, but it's all how you use or abuse your Jeep. Just sayin, I wouldn't bother with a Semi float rear axle.

Agree. If I could afford bolt in 1 tons it would be dynatrac. I have seen their pro rock 44 compared to a currie 60 and 44 and it seemed more substantial to me, however, I don't think you could go wrong with currie, dyntrac, or solid.

Also go 8 lug,,,,, I have also twisted/bent the 5 studs (on spacer and axle itself) at the same time. Since I tweeked the right rear studs again. And Yes, I do keep an eye on and torque my wheel lug nuts to 95 ft. lb.s with a torque wrench before and after I wheel, the spacers were torqued and "red locktite" when installed. The spacer lugs have never come loose and to get them off took a he11 of a breaker bar just to break them loose.

Sexy!!


OP: Okay..... not that you did any searching, as this post is on the front page of the mod section.... but there you go. One to avoid! I wish I had spent the extra coin and gone with the Dynatrac or anything else for that matter.

I went with Teraflex 60's front and rear.

Have not ran them yet but the build quality and components have exceeded my expectations.

Hit up Impulse Offroad (JKO Yellow Star Vendor) for detailed pricing and specs.

I think you will find that they are going to be the best cost solution.

John Williams (Impulse) has the best pricing and service I have found anywhere.

Yeah my dodge had the 60 FF rear axle and 8 lug would be great so i don't need to buy new wheels either. I see this being a 5 year build unless i want to be broke fast again. Starting simple keeping it daily driver and in the end have it be able to go any were. I have the lift and big tire itch but i don't want to re-gear current axles or swap out the front axle just to replaced with 1 tons. Thanks for the input.

Is it easy to get 8 lug conversion on any of the dynatrac axles?

Figures you would come out with this just after I did your 60's front and rear!!

I would say go with Dynatrac....Absolutely love my 60's and they have NO issues managing the tug of war between the 6.7 hemi and the sticky Treps.

Simple, just tell them when you order....can even get custom widths, lockers, different mounts, bigger brakes etc etc etc.
