Are you running stock axles ? I am considering the same setup...
For now yes, u-joints have been upgraded but shafts are still stock. May just upgrade to chromoly when I get the gusstes welded in at Northridge4x4, they're only an hour from where I live.

Gotta say I'm huge fan of the Truetrac. Handles just like an open diff, even on packed snow and really slick roads it doesn't get squirrly or feel wierd.

Yo, Rubi68. sorry to hear about your breakage. David at NR4x4 can get you set up with new shaft pretty qucik if your looking to upgrade. I'd offer you one of my spare but they're for the D30. Good lcuk man, let us know what you end up putting in there.
I'd like to see a pic of the broken shaft once you get it out of there. Curiuos where it failed.

I seen some other guys discussing installing ARB air locker setups and was flabbergasted to see it costing over $5 K to have someone install it for you on both axles. Way more than I am willing to spend at this point. Are the e-lockers more reasonable?
I was quoted about $2650 from one shop and $2900 from another for for both ends for Eaton e-lockers with my 3.73s, keeping my stock gears. Changing to 4.11s would be a little over $200 for each end if done at the same time as the lockers. They said I could cut the price in half if I went with just the rear locker in lieu of both.

[QUOTEWhat are your thoughts on using a TruTrac up front?][/QUOTE]

Have them front and rear on my '12. Don't notice it at all in 2wd up front, in 4wd its a awesome setup. Great street manners and great off road.

TrueNorth Thanks that was a NICE offer- I'll post a pic when I get my jeep back.. You know I own a Nissan Maxima and my jeep and these last four days driving the Maxima have made aware of one thing... I need two I just love the bouncy ride and slow pace of the wrangler.. My Maxima is 18 months old and has 1800 miles so its kind of useless anyhow..

Donate to Wounded warrior Project if you can spare the money-Please pass this message on..
