G2 axles

Has anyone used G2 axles before? I'm preparing to swap in a Rubicon Dana 44 rear axle and found the left axle was about .030 out of round so I ordered a set of G2 axles. They seem to be good quality and the price on these are about half the cost of other axles! Here is a picture of the new rear end.

I finally got my axles in and I've got to say that these G2 axles are very nice. They only cost $210.00 for the pair and that includes bearings, seals and studs. I was a little ticked at 4Wheel Drive Hardware as it only took them 4 weeks to get them to me, and that was after numerous ***** sessions over the phone! I'm sure glad I replaced them because the left side splines were a little tweaked besides the runout on the left flange. Here are a couple pics of the axle back together without the brackets and a little paint on it.

Tell me about it! All of the other axles were around $350 and up! This is a killer deal while it last! I had to ask if it was both axles or just one when I ordered them.

I know this is an old thread but anybody ever heard how there complete new axles & housings are?. There now advertising complete front & rear Dana 44's at Quadratec for about 5K, I know its a ton of money (this does include a front locker of your choice). Its cheaper than buying say a Rubi TJ. I know there's cheaper ways of course, but probably not easier?? (Someday I was thinking about these for my YJ, I know it would be like stuffing a diamond up an old nag's ^&*) Thanks
