2012 jkur sleeve and gusset????

hey all,

im running a 2012 jku rubicon stock so far. planning on a 3' lift with 35s

i offroad with it stock and it is still an animal, i can only imagine when i have the lift and tires. just recently been learning about the front axel problems.

do you guys think i should gusset and sleve the front?

if so can anyone recommend a good manufacturer? anyone do the job on their own? difficulty level? pics???

Thanks guys!!

I did the EVO C-gussets, and I have the Artec Axle Armor kit (waiting to get time to have it welded on), check it out it's supposed to be even stronger than the sleeves. And no you don't need to sleeve it also.

I would definitely do the C's for running 35's, even if it's just a road Jeep. Whether or not you sleeve (or replace) the axle depends on how hard you're gonna wheel it.
