Personally, I'm a huge fan. Huge NVH absorption, excellent durability so far, and no reason to grease after the initial coating. Getting rid of 14 grease zerks wasn't the worst thing ever.
Connor if they can handle the repeated flexing and are durable why not.
I am happy with JJ's in my Jeep and doubt I will change anytime soon.
To me those work well are durable and very easy and cheap to rebuilt. Doesn't mean that those duralast bushings are a more sensible or more appealing alternative for other Jeep owners.
To be honest curious how well they will do, the one lil Grinder trail will squeeze every last lil bit of flex out of white lighting.

Don't have much interest in them so no idea what they are called, duralast came to mind. In my misguided opinion they are great for occasional mild to moderate wheelin and will work well for that for years. Now start flexing the snot out of your rig on a weekly or by weekly basis and try hard to get the most out of your suspension on the same weekly or biweekly basis and I am pretty sure they will not live a long and happy life. Such is the nature of rubber bushings, regardless of how fancy they are made

I can't compare to JJ's as I haven't had them, but so far so good with the MC joints. Not sure how hard or often the rigs that have them run, but I've been flexin' the snot outa mine at minimum every other weekend hours on end since I put them on in July. Holding up great so far and quiet as a mouse. Ride is awesome too, but like ya said, I'll find out eventually.

Just looked at them a lil closer and it looks like the rubber bushing can spin in the barrel, which from a flex standpoint is a good thing. From a wear point of view not so good, but it will keep it from ripping and shredding

These are suuuuper fancy though Art! I heard NASA is using them on the next Mars rover???

Sorry Art I know you're passionate about using stuff that just works and don't see a need to reinvent the flex joint...... But that don't mean these cant work as well or possibly better for some people. We shall see how I like them, I do have to admit that most people running them, don't wheel very often and I'm a little worried about that, mainly because I wheel much more than your average person it seems.

If frequent, repeated incidents of full misalignment are all you're worried about then be prepared to be impressed. That particular concern is a non-issue.

OlllllllO

I am ready to be impressed, we will see how white lightning does. Got a pretty good workout for it in mind.
Now as far as rotational movement goes, am I correct that the rubber bushing basically spins in the housing/barrel?
