If Currie Made RockJock 44s would you buy them?

I love the Currie RockJock design, with the tilted diff cover, diff skid plate, flipped up tie rod mounts on the knuckles, and a tough housing, but I'm only ever planning on running 37s, so shelling out well over 5K just for the front axle alone isn't really practical, not to mention the weight and drag from the shear size of those axles won't be nice. So my question is, if they made a Dana 44 would you buy it? I know I would.

Just like how Dynatrac ended up finally ended up making a ProRock Dana 44, I hope currie is considering doing something similar.

I voted yes, only because I agree that if a person is going to run hard on 37s they need to build up from strong axles (Currie, G2, Dyantrac) not because I would do that to my new Jeep. I just won't ever have the money. And if I did, I'd build a TJ. (I also agree with the comments about their design.

With the amount of JKs flying out of Toledo, give it time.

Yeah, 60s are frigging expensive. Thanks to the pentastar and new transmissions, JKs are selling like Crack-infused hotcakes, I'm actually starting to notice a lot more on the road, so it's gotta be a matter of time before you see a RockJock 44, there's just so much of a market for it. I sent an email to the technical support at currie asking if there is any plan to do so, hopefully I hear back soon.

They're all freaking expensive, but if you run the costs of beefing up your own axle, it's about right.

It would be nice to have a competitive option on the front axle.

BTW, I've got one for sale.

I was quoted 4600$ from currie for thier Rockjock 44 with 5.13 gears, zip locker, and alloy shafts. This is reusing my stock outers. So unless your just getting the housing I don't think it's going to be that much under 5k

So Currie actually does produce a RockJock version of the 44? Or is that for their regular 44? I was under the impression that the RockJock series was only available in D60+

From what I understood it was their rock jock with some minor differences. I could be mistaken though.
