Take a look on naxja there's a huge thread about them and how bad they suck.

I'm on my phone right now, but once I get home ill post up the pics of the bent caster adjuster.
I guess I wheel at the mall then And it isn't a 10mm bolt, it is more around a 17mm bolt. And I wouldn't call the naxja thread "huge". The caster adjustment didn't even fail on yours, it bent but still held the pinion angle. I guess since I bent my double shear track bar it must also be a piece of crap, it couldn't have had anything to do with how it driving it. Anything will bend with enough force.

I see where 2doorxj has beef with IRO. Just curious, when was your bad experience with IRO?

eh. I dont really have one. Ive skimmed across threads where this has been an issue.

in my opinion (which is strictly my opinion...) if your going to go to around 6'' and 33s or 35s why not just "over build" it the first time. I haven't dropped a dime into my 35 or 30, simply because I know that they are not the axles that I want to instill my trust in on the trails. The 30 can put forth a good effort with mollys, truss, and 4.88s.


Im swapping in a 44 and 9'' (the 44 isn't better than the 30 blah blah blah)


but why not build axles that can roll with 5.13s and 37s

as far as suspension, why not do a 3 link in the front THE FIRST TIME? everyone eventually wants a 3 link, why not just do it the first time?

17mm hahhahahhaa. The upper control arm bolt is a 10mm. Go outside and measure it.

When something bends that shouldnt bend, like the caster adjuster, it failed. It failed to retain its shape.

Their design is just unsafe, a 10mm bolt isnt strong enough and neither is their gay caster adjuster. The topic has been beat to death.


A 31 page thread isnt huge arguing over one topic?

Good choice on the front 44. Putting serious money into a 30 is just plain dumb. Have you ever scene the pinion gear for a 4.88 gearset for a dana 30? Its insanely small.

Yes a dana 30 and a 44 might have the same size u joints, but once upgraded it really isnt an issue, the puny ring and pinion, thin axle tubes, weak housing, become the issue.

Sorry for the 30 rant, but i had too

why not why not why not........... why not d60s? why not portals? why not 42's, 44's, 54's? a 30/8.25 can handle 33's and 35's just fine, and you can do a heck of alot with that setup. once i go any bigger then that the xj will default to DD duty and i'll get a wrangler to build on tons

why build a wrangler on tons?

Im simply saying, that if your going to do something to your jeep, do it the way you want the first time, and then some.

you will save $$$, and be much happier with the outcome.

thats is all.

You forgot to put that this is your opinion

This is not always the best, greatest,nor a possible option for most people

IMO

true, if you don't state that, people assume you are telling them how to build their jeep.

that logic is what I use to build MY jeep.

yup, it always seems you were just pushing your plans on others. but its gotta be how YOU want. and building it once is smart, but not everyone has the means, or knows what they want. you gotta feel it out


sooooooo, WHERE IS MY FREE JEEP SPOKES
