    Here's the JE Reel joints, be interesting to see how they hold up. Good reviews from users so far.

    Hey Harley.

    Scott hooked me up with a guy that had bought them for his 44 but then purchased a 60. They are the WARN ALLOY Shafts. I got them for about 400 brand new in the box. They would have set me back about 600 from a local 4x4 shop. You might find them on Go-Warn.com for less than that though.

    Stub shafts are the same for each side PN#38815 Axle Outer

    Short side inner is PN#38809

    Long side inner is PN#39529

    I think most people have gone with the superior chromos but the price was right for me.

    I also went with the JE REEL u-joints which are cyro'd and have a larger trunion / center section. They are between the spicer 760's and the CTMs on the strength scale. Supposedly 40% stronger than spicer 760. I read a lot of reviews on Pirate and no one had anything bad to say about them. They use needle bearings so it's perfect for a daily driver "slash" trail rig. I thought about CTM's but there was the ball busting price and also the issue of daily driving. JE REEL seems like a good selection for us in-between guys.

    JE Reel D44 u-joint PN# AX-44

    We'll see. :D

    Not on the first date sweet cheeks.

    Yea well your a young Hammertime stud. Don't worry it'll shrink with age.

    This is like some weirdo version of Broke Back Four-Wheelers or something?

    Man I sure love how those shafts don't have the neck-downs. Maybe some day when I grow up I can have some too.:D
