I was originally going to clean up and paint my FSJ axles at home, but it wasn't all that quick. So, I hauled the axles to a sandblasting shop in Fraser, Michigan, that did my CJ5 frame YEARS ago, as well as the 15x8 Jeep wagon wheels for the Guatemalan Grand Wagoneer.
One day and $150 later, I have two sandblasted and primered axles. $55 per axle for blasting and $20 per axle for primer.
I taped off a few critical areas, like the Warn locking hubs and the brake lines and breather vent hoses, so sand wouldn't get inside them. Then just had them blast and primer everything else, since I'll be redoing the front and rear brakes.
