    This may be the answer to the U-joint breakage with the cromemoly axles. If you are going to sell them I would be interested in having a set.

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    Are they greaseable or non-greaseable?

    All the power of a built 460 to one front 44" Swamper and didn't break the joint! Very cool!

    So what did you make them out of? Did you grind the surface for the needle bearings? Did you have them hardened? Sorry for all the questions. If it is a trade secret I understand. The grinding would be about all that I can't do. But I don't know if I could make them that strong!

    How much torque was going through the u-joint ?
    Could you have done this test with a Spicer 5-297x ?
    Turn the wheel/tire 10 degs. and let see what happens.
    Please use some Warn fuseable hubs.

    Check out Jesse's web site for more info on the specifications of the super tough Dana 44 axle joint; <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.highangledriveline.com>http://www.highangledriveline.com</A>

    It is hard to tell in the picture, but he was turning the steering wheel while he was smoking the tire.
