Hi guys, I am building a little hotrod. The plan is to use front 4wd knuckles and hubs as RWD drive hubs. I wont get into specifics, but it looks like the knuckle assembly from these jeeps will do what I want. I am looking into the Dana 30 with the command-trac. Im pretty sure its from this generation of grand cherokee... right? Anyhow, What I need to know is if any of you guys have had any problems with the hub or the splines on the outer axleshafts? All I will be using is the outer axles (after the U-joints),the hub/bearings, and the knuckle.
The good news is the car will be very light (under 2000lbs) with minimal traction (not drag racing). The bad news (for the driveline anyway
) is that it will be 500hp. I worry about stripping the splines or breaking the hub.
I realize this is an odd post but I would appretiate any info. If you know of guys running big 4x4 tires and low gears through the stock hubs et al please let me know. Also if there are any aftermarket units, or an aftermarket hub with better metals please speak up.
Thanks for any help.
