Front is a Dana 30 with a spartan and stock shafts, and I care spares. Rear is a 44 with an ARB and Chromos, and I care spares for that as well. I have not broken a front yet, but I did bend a rear Alloy USA shaft. I try to have a lighter foot and not let it bounce too bad

Ordered the Savvy Tailgate Skin today. Hopefully it will work on mine with the Tailgate being a little tweaked

When I had my wrangler I ordered a rugged ridge oversize tire carrier, it just bolted to the tail gate like the stock mount. With a 33in tire just going over the slightest bump made it clunk up and down, and after a week the hinges started to wear and the gate leaned and didnt close right. Id much rather have that set up! lol

Yeah, plus I smashed the swing away into a tree hard enough to bend it into the tailgate. It looks like crap now.
