tangofox007 Received my Alloy USA axle kit. The big letters on the box say "Alloy USA." The small print says "Made in India." So much for buying American. (Maybe USA stands for Unscrupulous Seller of Axles!!)

The flanges were advertised to be drilled for both 5 on 4.5 and 5 on 5.0 bolt patterns. Mine were drilled for 5 on 4.5 only. That suits me fine, but somebody looking for the 5 on 5.0 configuration would have been disappointed.

Keep it as a trail spare or trading material. It may take a couple of years but, it will come in handy later.

Thanks for that info. I have had great results from Northridge in the past, but in this case time is of the essence and they are on the opposite coast. Amazon had the best price on an Alloy USA kit and had it on the way within two hours of my hitting the "Place Order" button.

f9k9 Call David at Northridge4x4 Jeep Parts Online Store and he can hook you up. Notice, I said "call". He can't advertise his prices online and he offers free shipping on orders over $100 and an automatic 5% discount on orders over $300. I have a set of axles in route with everything pressed on for a decent price. I too bent a rear rear rubi axle.

ygohome Sorry to hear that. It always stinks having to reorder.

I've been happy with my Alloy USA shafts. I have their "Mas Grande" 35 spline kit with ARB locker in the back in a rubicon D44 housing. And their 30 spline up front also in a rubicon housing.

tangofox007 Some much for buying G2 axle shafts. My order got cancelled due to no stock. Looks like Alloy USA willl get my business instead. Their customer service rep "thinks" their shafts will fit a Rubicon.

tangofox007 Thanks for the response. I have a set of G2 shafts on order. That option was about $100 cheaper than buying just one OE type shaft. And $300 cheaper than paying list price at the dealer.

ygohome the rear D44 axle shafts are the same for rubicons and non-rubicons.

There is a difference in the backing plate though. It is shaped a bit different for the rubicon's backing plate to accommodate the brake caliper anchor.

Some shafts may come with backing plate and bearings already pressed on and that is likely the difference in the part numbers. Or maybe the shafts that are for all year TJ D44 regardless if rubicon or not, perhaps those have the backing plate that works with both rubicon and otherwise.

*You can buy used rear rubcion axle shafts with bearing, seals and backing plates for about $75 - $100 by google searching. But I'd step up and buy chromolly hardened steel shafts since your replacing them.

Rubicon axle shaft

2003 Rubicon. Collision with curb resulted in bent rear axle shaft. The Mopar catolog shows a different part number for the axle shaft for a Rubicon Dana 44 versus the non-Rubicon model. Many of the aftermarket axle vendors, however, list only one part which they claim fits all Wranglers with the Dana 44. Anyone know what the difference is between the Rubicon and non-Rubicon Dana 44 axle shafts?
