My opinion, used take offs are ok if you do not expect a long life. You are taking a chance in a way with that kind of deal. But I wouldnt spend $2000 for that upgrade unless that is what I wanted and had the money.

I just bought a set of 4.10 stock axles for $200, only needed to replace the brakes for another $100 plus new oil. So $400 does not sound too bad to have someone do the replacing.

Gotta stand by all you cool guys... Maybe it'll rub off?!

Well, if $2000 is anything to you like what it is to me, and if all you're doing is light wheeling, no, it's probably not worth it. There's middle ground between the two options, though, too, but honestly, I've done okay with what they shipped from the factory with.
Sold my Cherokee to buy a Wrangler, which I'm selling to buy a Cherokee, after which I'm going to buy another Wrangler. Make sense?
