Anyone bought axles from alljeep?

I was going to do a super35 ox locker upgrade, but now I see that alljeep.com has bolt in d44 assemblies with ox lockers for not much more than a s35 w/labor. Has anyone bought from alljeep and is their customer service decent? Just want to avoid problem dealers whenever possible.


'98 TJ has been under the knife the last 18 months getting a new frame, torque boxes and fenders.

I was doing a search on Google and came across this post. A little late, huh?

Anyway the price is not a joke. I do not use junk, either. All of the components are brand name - Yukon gears and install kit, OX locker (new style of course), Alloy USA axles, Spicer diff cover (obviously not if you have an OX locker) and u bolt style pinion yoke, etc. Unlike others, mine comes with a 70" cable for that price. I also include new oil seal retaining plates and top lock nuts.

When I setup my gears, I go completely off of pattern. I do not 'care' about pinion depth. A perfect pattern will mean a perfect pinion depth and backlash adjustment. No sense in chasing your tail to get them setup correclty with a machine. I use the largest shim possible everywhere. I see a lot of the smaller shims fracture and then you lose your diff settings and have problems with the diff later. On the carrier preload, I am not afraid to put a butt load of preload in there. I have never seen a carrier bearing burn up from too much preload. Doing this also pre loads the case and all but stops pinion deflection.

I build between 3 and 8 of these a month. I have 2 that I'm working on right now, but housings are on backorder. I hope to have them tomorrow. I had a guy from the sand box order one for a Moab tirp this weekend. Originally we had lots of time to put it together (nearly 4 weeks), but Jeep kept on moving the back order date. By 10/1, I realized I wasn't going to be getting the housing from Jeep and started making lots of phone calls. I finally found one over by Seattle for $150 more than my cost (even more than Jeep retail!). I spent the day and drove over and picked it up. I ate the cost and did not pass it on to my customer. I knew in the beginning how much this trip meant to him and his wife, so I did whatever I could to get it to him before. He should be back home today. The axle mad it in town this last wekeend and is ready to be delivered. It might have been delivered today, I haven't checked the tracking number since this morning.

Bottom line, quality is good. Customer service is top notch. Price is pretty dang good. What do you have to loose? You can also search around the boards as I'm pretty well known for my 8.8 assemblies. And I can also do 35 spline Rock Jock HPD60's for about $1k more

Anyway, any questions just ask!!!!

Here are some pictures of his axle... The box has the cable, shifter, manuals, stickers and u bolts.

Do yourself a favor and buy the dana 44 and don't wate your time and money on the dana 35, I bought a super 35 6 months ago and the housing took a crap on me because it can't handle what the super 35 can and now I have a dana 44 and a broken super 35 as a conversasion piece that I can't do anything with.

I'll probably try to make it back down for the Winter convention (Utah 4 Wheel Drive Assocation - www.u4wda.org)

Otherwise I have to hang out here and miss the rocks

Absolutely. The problem with the 35 is not the axle or carrier, it's the housing. Installing a super 35 does nothing to address the problem. The only thing you can do to address it, is a truss. Superior does have a nice truss and diff cover that will help you polish that turd.

I'm going to try to be there for the winter convention and then the Price deal in June. Not really any other plans otherwise...

Oh, and when you start building that POS, you gotta post pics!
