That's very true. But sometimes that glued-on medallion doesn't even survive the act of pressing the bearings onto the shaft.Manufacturers of high-zoot alloy/chromolly axle shafts are proud of their stuff and tend to put their logos on the hub so it can be seen when the wheel is mounted.
I will almost bet good money that the pieces are from a chrome-molly axle due to the way they shattered and the complete axle isn't due to it having rolled splines similar to factory.When I bought my TJ, I was told it had chromoly axels. I've pulled them out and didn't see any stickers or markings. I know at least one has been replaced because I found leftover carnage in the diff housing. Any way to tell which, if any, are chromoly?
