My normal messing around driving style doesn't warrant anything that massive, my Comp driving style is a bit different but a good set of 35 spline chromoly shafts and solid u-joints will do quite nicely. As long as I avoid unleashing the 466 when at full lock everything should be fine.

I know what you're getting at - cheap shat breaks easier and leads to more cost in the long run. I didn't mean that I was looking for the cheapest alternative by any means, I will at least end up with what Beefy has from JBG - which I think are actually Yukon bits not being sold under the Yukon name. I have heard of a few guys running these and even getting the same warranty that you get with the higher cost Yukon name.

If anyone knows for sure either way, I would be interested in some clarification. Suppose I could just call them, but I am not to the point where it really matters yet. I figure by late May - early April, it will be time to make the purchase.
