Re: strong axles

These guys make stronger axle and claim more articulation too.

Over 800 per axle, I would just rather have a trail spare and the know how to do it
That's what I have. I run 35's too
I can get rebuilt cv axles for 139.00 with a lifetime warranty. I know some pay less for them ,but this is a shop I trust and if I blow and axle, I put my new trail spare on, and get the other one fixed, to become a trail spare, again.
thanks
Don

Take the advice of the few people that actually go off road!

If you follow direction and advice of most trail leaders...spotters out on the trails you most likely won't break anything...

Howard is crazy on the trails, I've seen it!

I run 35s and still on my factory CVs, but might as well say I'm running bootless! Waiting for my new icons to get here before I install my Advance Auto $79 CVs! (Auto Zone is 3 hours away!) However I am looking at the Allpro boots

I snaped an axle shaft a few weeks ago and gave them a call. RCV is in the process of redesigning those and doesn't currently offer them. You can send them your new factory axles and they replace the components with their upgrade components. Its a little cheaper.. 585 or so an axle?
