None the less, I'd be very interested in your front 44!!
i saw his 44, it got me thinking. it looked promising? thicker wall tubes, high pinion gears, bigger brakes, serviceable bearings,
and lock out hubs are nice options. off the shlf shafts help too. i would have to see it in person though.

with it unfinished, a d60 or jk 44 would be an option too.

i want to run 37's, and stock rubi axles are not the best option for that, though it has been done with some success.

i also thought about selling the axles as a matched set front and rear with pumps. i want to re-gear to 5.38, so factory lockers are not an option.

or i can keep it as is, put in 5.13's, and call it a day.
it will never see serious abuse.

plus they bring some serious coin! i could sell them and get what i want for cheap.
