Hello!

I’m looking for recommendations on axleshaft (also opinions & experiences with Ten Factory and Nitro). I have a bent flange in my 2013 JKU NON-rubi rear D44 (right side). Preferably pre-pressed and all. I figured I could try and prevent another possible bent flange while upgrading/ replacing. TIA! (pic for attention)

I went with the Torque masters. They were in stock and I had them within a few days. Installation was stupid simple as they come fully assembled and ready to bolt in.

I installed Ten Factory Dana 44 30 spline in my JKU Sport a few weeks ago. Preassembled. Great price, quality - everything went very smooth.

I've read and heard that Revolution is the wholesale manufacturer and supplier for many of these aftermarket axles... If you want to support Revolution - go buy theirs directly from them - I talked to them in person at a recent Jeep event after I bought and installed my Ten Factory axles... Otherwise you MAY be getting the exact same product elsewhere.

I’ve been running Ten Factory shafts front and rear for years. My Jeep is heavy and I run some pretty challenging trails. I have had no issues with the rear shafts. No bent flanges, no leaking seals, etc. I did destroy one of the u joints in the front a few months ago. Ten Factory sent me a new shaft under warranty, which was nice.

I may have to look into this! Thank you.

This is what I looked forward to hearing. Thank you!! These are among the higher end of my list but still doing tons of searching.

Northridge sells the ten factory axles, preassembled. Though the price when I bought it a few weeks ago was $450 total. Looks like prices jumped a little bit.
Maybe 5 years ago I got the front and rear ten Factory shafts as a set from Northridge for $900. Now that same set is $1400.

Dang it, it looks like I missed that train.

These seem more convincing than Nitro and Ten Factory! Way more companies made these than I even imagined (but also barely did research, wanted a feel of what actual jeepers ran first)

How is an axle shaft “convincing?” 🤔
Lol more so with the number of people who’ve chimed in and backed them. I think I MAY have heard a bit of them in the past. I’m still waiting for others to chime in as I do more research before finally choosing. (Also I just realized it was your JKU that I looked at when considering MCE fenders and ACE liners. Sweet rig! I also see you run the ten factory’s, which are high on my list)

I'm not doubting other products being good... But i just don't understand paying more, and getting a lesser warranty. The revolution have lifetime bent flange coverage. Seemed like a no brainer but of course to each their own.
