Other than a dealership, of course. Looking for axle sleeve/gusset install (maybe the bolt upgrades) possible lift, etc.

I've found Axleboys in St. Chuck, and Hellbent Performance in Chesterfield. (The Hellbent looks a little MMA fanboy toolish on the website).

Anybody have experience with these two, or any other suggestions?

42 looks and no suggestions must mean that you guys do all of your own work.

So when can I bring mine over with a case of suds? :flowers:

Just got my JKU a couple of weeks ago, Axelboy was suggested to me from one of the local Jeep clubs, I talked to the owner Sat at a Jeep show, knows his stuff and seems willing to work with ya to get what you want done.

Thanks much. I've been trying to get to a MW Jeep Thing meeting to join up and get suggestions, but both of my daughters have soccer practice on Tuesdays.

Bummer, I caught up with them at a show last Sat. Seems like a good group. Might try and watch their calander and catch them at an event. I joined, sent my membership fee in a couple of days ago, still waiting for them to activate my membership.

Sorry I cant give you any feed back on axleboy but have heard great things.

On MWJT, I have only been a member since March 13 made it 3 of the runs at Sayersbrooke had a blast at all 3 and have meet a lot of nice people. Will be making it to jeepstock also in September. If your new to offroading, I would suggest the newbie run coming up in October.

Hellbent did my lift, rockers and trussed my axle. They did a good job on the lift kit and the PSC rockers

Their welds are posted on this link

I shopped around, and while they are a bit "MMA"ish, they've always been very professional with me. Zane let me look around the shop and some of their projects in the garage. I felt confident with their work and have referred others to their shop.

No experience with Axleboy though.

I will keep checking the website for events guys, thanks! I'm a noob with a stock Wrangler, so I'm looking for all the experience I can get.

I just had my first service experience at Axleboy on a driveshaft issue. Saved me a bunch of money vs the dealer and would recommend them

Thanks! I met the owner at a MWJT event, seemed very knowledgeable and plainspoken.

I'd feel pretty confident in using them after what I've heard.

First Capitol 4x4 in St. Charles, MO. Ask for Kevin or Dave. Great shop, been in business in this area for many years. Off road and performance under one roof.
