Dana 44 Gears-what kind do you recommend?

Looking for gears for my 07 rubicon. Should I keep my superiors or send them back and get Yukons? Or what else?

Superior does it right. I definitly would not send them back. But might spend a little more time in research if I was going to buy. Superior really does take it serious to put the best product out there. I have them and have put 20k miles on them this year with NO issue at all.

Actually, Yukons & superior are both made at the same place in Mexico. These are the good gears, they're considered "American", it's the Piece of $hit chinese gears that you wanna avoid.
Back to your question....I'd say go for which ever are cheaper. If you already have the superiors, you'd be getting the same exact gears if you ordered the Yukons... Keep what you got.

Yukon just released their own gears for the JK...not sure if they are all made at the same place anymore but you're right, they have done that in the past and still do on many applications.

Exactly, From what I have heard from my gear guy, the only good gears are from Mexico. That's where the major manufacturers buy from. Those are the gears considered "American".

When I bought my gears I had asked for YUKON. I was told they were all out of YUKON but had a SUPERIORS and that they were made in the same factory. So I have SUPERIOR up front and YUKON in the rear
