jk axle prices.

Just wanted to say. I priced the jk dana 44 axles this week and I cant believe the pries on them things now. I got the front axle in december and it was 1700. Now its 2,895. And the rears also. The jk model is at 1,790. and the jk modded for tj is at 4,185. These prices were all from the local jeep dealer. I cant believe how much theve gone up. I did find a rear jk d44 to match the front for under a grand if anyone cares. I do. L8rrr.

YOu can find the JK axles online for cheaper, usually around $1300... and why the TJ axles are so much more I haven't a clue.

is that $1300 for he front or rear. When I was looking for the front axle I looked all over online and off. I found some cheaper than what I paid for mine but the shipping was a killer and it ended up being more expensive than at the dealer. I found the rear online for under a grand. Which is good.

I think the jk moded for tj axleis so expensive because they had to make all the engineering and tooling for it. It is specific to one vehicle. This part is also not mass produced so it costs more also. I could be wrong though.

Oh really? That is very interesting. Would it be for the same JK price or more because of the bracket change?

Yeah at 4G I think it's a little overboard. Hell for about 2500 you can get a loaded high pinion 44 built to whatever width you want from Currie. They put D30 inner C's on them and you use your outer knuckles and unit bearings.

Starting for about 5500 you can start looking at front 60's.
