New axle shafts?

Local shop worked on my 03 Rubi last week. I went wheeling on Sunday and discovered they failed to torque driver side rear wheel properly. Wheel and lugs are ruined. So now I get to order my new Raceline monster bead-locks I've been wanting. Wife can't say no now! Anyway now the question is do I go ahead and upgrade the shafts to G2 chromoly while I have them out or not? If I do upgrade shafts is there anything else in there I should upgrade? Comments, suggestions appreciated.

What type of wheeling do you do? Alloy shafts aren't normally needed with 33" tires, 35" tires are the usual size when wheelers start installing alloy shafts.

Remember that having a different opinion doesn't also require one to be a jerk when expressing it.

When you have a choice, buy American.

I'm in middle TN so I mainly wheel woods and some mud. Not a lot of rocky stuff but plenty of hills. I plan on upgrading to the RE 5.5" long arm with 35's in the future and just thinking that since I have it apart already I might as well go ahead and upgrade them now. I can get them for $250, tax free and free shipping from
