Put your foot down. Who wears the pants in your house?
You talking to me lol? I would normally just do what i want, but we're in the process of building a 40x60 shop on the 40 acres we just bought, and in the spring we're starting to build our 3000 sq ft house, so spending 20k on a toy isn't going to happen right now. I'm going to try to get weights dialed in, and get my shocks, springs, and air bumps. Build the frame and cage, then the plan is to build my axles.

I'm running Spicer greasable joints in my front axle, and have many full throttle assaults on hills, rocks, and mud. Have yet to have an issue. They've been good to me since 2012, even running 39.5's. You should go Spicer joints as well, non greasable or greasable, you'll be happy with them.
In another note, how did the tires do until it broke? Were you even able to wheel very long? Looks like it was busy, wish i could've made it.

Looks like denny's driveshaft is the place to go for a big upgrade.

Looks like tires had enough traction to blow up some joints. :sonicjay:


It's going to be interesting to see if factory shafts and joints in the 1550 size are a cheap upgrade in strength. I've got a set in the mail, but it'll be a while before they get put to the test.
