Would like some input from people who might possibly scour the internet for aftermarket parts more than me.

Thanks
G2 takes OEM and a few other local axle housings and just fills them with imported parts. You can buy a Rock Jock housing from Currie through G2 with G2 imported internals.

Don't let the name confuse you. They were NEVER made in the US for the most part across all their part numbers. That would also be contrary to the business model since the owner/money man behind Alloy USA was from India.

TJWenatchee You could also try Just Differentials. They did my re gear and they also ship made to order custom axles. They are located near me in Cashmere, WA. Ask for Jeff and tell them Kevin Dellinger mentioned them. They did right by me and they used Nitro Gears.

freeskier East Coast Gear Supply builds axles in the US, and I believe they use all US made parts as well. Dynatrac says they are made in the US, Mopar makes aftermarket bolt in axles.

tangofox007 I was primarily needing to replace a bent axle, so I bought Alloy USA part #12135. The insurance company sprung for the list price of $607 for the OE part. I spent $306 for the axle kit (two axles.) At least the bearings were USA Timken.

SBakerUMC I here you borther. Just trying to cut through the noise. What did you end up going with (comparedt o the set up you have/ want)?

tangofox007 I just went through the axle shaft process a few weeks ago. What a bunch of smoke and mirrors. I tried to buy G2, but they were backordered for a month everywhere. Finally settled on Alloy USA. When I received them, the fine print said "Made in India."

SBakerUMC Thanks man. Any recommendations?

UnlimitedLJ04 yea...theres a bunch of companies that make bolt in axles.

www.dynatrac.com
www.currieenterprises.com
www.samsoffroad.com
www.eastcoastgearsupply.com

Even Mopar makes bolt-in axle assemblies...available at your local dealer. Local 4x4 shops and local fabricators often also specialize in complete axle assemblies. Around here they even advertise on craigslist.

So I just realized that G2 axels are a "MADE in China" product. Not that I am totally anti "Made in China", but for my Jeep, I would like to purchase a fully made in the USA product.

So My question is: Does G2 really have a competitor in the US? Someone that offers the same kind of set up (Dana 44, chromoly shafts, ARB Lockers, 5.38 gears, etc.)? Is there a better option that is as bolt on complete?
