I was open/open when I last ran Holy Cross. I was able to get through French Creek with some careful line choice.

Here's a link to the thread from the trip!

Never mind, found the pic of the article...Not my my shot, it was taken at pretty much the same time, but a few feet to the left of mine

Thats what I thought. May not be going on Sunday now. I busted my hand up pretty bad today helping a friend move. Hoping it's not broken.

Thanks for the link.

So I thought my rear left wheel was bent from one of the Moab trips. Today I determined that it's actually the axle shaft that's bent. I'll have to figure out what will work being that it's a 'mythical' YJ 44. Hopefully a XJ/MJ/TJ shaft will work. If anyone knows for sure or has a lead on cheap shafts let me know!

What may have bent it.

Man it almost seems like you had better luck with that D35 then this 44 haha. How many spline is that 44?

From what I read given my attempts to procure decent spares for my D44, you can use TJ/XJ shafts with matching spline counts. Was reading somewhere on Pirate that the indeed "mythical" YJ D44 is basically the same thing as the D44's used in similar year XJ's. Back when I was looking for options to replace my Turdy5 in the old YJ, I came to understand that the YJ D44 is something like a less-advertised and little-purchased factory upgrade for the towing package, so's to speak.

While I never broke the 35, I didn't wheel it anywhere near as hard. It's standard 30 spline.

No problem. If you discover contradictory information, please send it my way. Still working on locating reasonably priced, decent spares for my D44. Good luck!

Just made a few online purchases. I'm pretty pumped.

Parts are coming from JKS, Iron Rock Offroad, Ten Factory, and one part coming from a guy here on the forum.
