Randys ring and pinion carries YUKON High Strength versions.


You can get them together, or buy them seperately...

They only run about $125 per shaft.. you can also get bearing kits from them.


I would check there..

they are a 30% upgrade from stock

He has a WJ meaning wider axle shafts are necessary and so I don't think Randy's R&P has any for them...

FYI, Yukon no longer makes those axle shafts for the WJ 44a.

I posted up in another thread about WJ D44a axle shafts about 4-5 months ago that there is another company that does make them for the WJ (Randy's R&P sells them)...They are EXPENSIVE though...I think they were $325 for the drivers side and $399 for the passanger side

YIKES! and i bet they are still CV.... I was directed to a place that does d30
u-joints for the dub for like 600 both sides with "almost alloy" like a chro molly knock off or something, but seems worth it, the guy i talked to hadn't broke em yet on 35s so...no yukon still makes the d44a right? i was on randys the other day and almost put them in my cart.. but couldn't bring myself to do it
