Here it is, thanks for helping me aquire them.
Here's the JE Reel joints, be interesting to see how they hold up. Good reviews from users so far.
What axles are they, where did you get them, what are they made out of, and how much? Thanks
Your shaft looks kinda small compared to mine
Oooooh baby, can I touch it??????
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.

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.
Yeah. I wish my shaft was that thick.....
And they're ribbed too!
