I've burned through y share of spicer parts. If i can find something built stronger I'm gonna give it a try
I find that hard to believe, considering I've used only Spicer ball joints and u joints for the past several years on 35's and now 37's. It's well documented that nothing else even remotely in that price range holds up half as well and my experience with them reflects that. What exactly have you "burned through" and what have you been doing?
Mostly u-joints in my 3/4 ton driveline, but I've also popped a couple tie rod ends. I used to run my K20's in the street stock class pulls and my K5 I would go beat around in at the Badlands in Attica. You're in Indy I'm sure you've seen enough of both.
Why do I get the feeling you're looking to cut me down? All I'm looking for is something I'm not going to have to worry about for a while.
I'm trying to figure out what you do so I can offer up the best advice, not cut you down. IMO, there's not a better ball joint or u joint for your TJ than Spicer. Your 3/4 ton and K5 are totally different vehicles with different uses.

Apologies. I've seen threads like this build up on Jeepforum and pirate and turn into all out brand wars. My tj gets ALOT of miles put on it. I've had it for right around two years, been on deployments for a total of 10 months and I've put close to 40k on it. In california I did light wheeling on public land, poker runs etc. My jeep is in Lafayette right now, I doubt I'll ever turn it into a hardcore crawler, Too much sentimental value and it's in too good of shape. 4" of lift on 33"s is just about perfect. Down the road I want to do coilovers so I can dial my suspension in.
