Me too, it was bound to happen. Almost wish it would have been a more catastrophic break so I could justify building a different axle.
Just give it time It won't take too much longer i don't think.

no doors, no top, no problems

Yeah PM me how much you want for it.

I am going to try and yank the Spartan out tonight. I want to make sure that is all that is broken before putting anymore money into the 30

I figure I can milk it for another year if I keep my foot out of it. Most of my wheeling is crawling instead of skinny pedal to the floor, but a 44 would be nice

Well I was wrong. Gears are trashed too.

Just get a 14 Bolt/60 combo and get it over with


Between the HP30 or the G2, I would grab the G2. The larger ring gear would be great piece of mind.I would also look at a Currie 9" front end.

Woohoo, another person on this forum who wheels hard enough to break there dana 30

I replaced mine with a Wagoneer 44. Perfect axle IMO if you don't want to go tons and full width. You get rebuildable hubs, large tubes, and can make a much better designed steering. I have beat the snot out of my 44 and it still going strong.

no doors, no top, no problems

Then I have to buy new beadlocks. How much did your Waggy cost total? G2 with chromos and a Detroit is $2600 to my door and everything is new.

Do you really want a detroit in the front with unit bearings? Aka an always locked front end on the street or are you converting to locking hubs?

I have about 1500 in my front 3 link and waggy 44 build from start to finish. All a g2 axle is is a rubicon 44. So that means same small unit bearings, same weak c's, same small ball joints, etc. Everything in my 44 is new except for rotors, hubs, and calipers and thats simply because i knew good used parts would treat me fine.

no doors, no top, no problems

Ordered an ECGS HP dana 30. With discount code and free shipping it is $1,200 with gears, ball joints, seals, bearings, and locker. All on 5 year warranty too Seemed like a good path to take.

Figure I will spend that at least getting everything else done and switched from my current axle.
