Purchasing used axles advice

I have an opportunity to buy the Dynatrac Pro Rock 44 & 60 axles for 9k for my 2015 JKU. The 44 has RCV axles while the 60 has Dynatrac axles. They are 18 months old. Just wanted to get your opinion purchasing these verses new.

Nothing wrong with buying used axles. Open them up and check the gears for unusual wear.

Does the gear ratio match your set up?

Are they set up for your lift geometry?

Do they have lockers?

If the rear 60 is a semifloat, check runout of the hub surface. SF 60's will bend shafts.

Really without seeing it I cant give much more help.
