smashed side axle:(

ok soo last weekend i smashed my passenger side side axle , the stub axle and the inner axle both blew the forks off the yolks and the u joint was no where to be seen when i mound the tire on a stump, i plan on up grading my stock D44 with some Superior inner axles and stubs but i go back to college next week and need to hold off and blowing 700 bucks, does any one know what other jeeps or trucks i could get a side axle from to tie me over till i upgrade ??

edit: 640 for choromolys from rock auto. plus your u joints.. might be able to find those cheaper though.

Try your local Craig's List and/or local 4x4 forum for a set of stockers. $60-$100 for a set out here in the PNW. Confirm the condition of the u-joints before you install them, and keep off the spendy pedal...

You have a front 44 I assume? Rubicon I would guess? Those will not be $60-$100 CL finds....

You may get lucky at a bone yard. You can check with Daveys Jeeps in Ohio, but the shipping may kill the deal.

I also live in Canada - shipping doesn't have to be that bad if you go USPS.

iam just going to upgrade and get a set of Superior axles for the front , if i broke it once i probably will again haha. Iam also considering the tube seal kit for the end of your axle, any one running these? i spent the majority of my wheeling in mud so sealing off the axle ends would be a good benefit to keep mud and rocks from building up in there i figure

If your going to order the Evo shafts from Superior you better buy them now and then be preparred to wait. I ordered my Evo shafts the end of February and still have no ETA on when I will get them. I have there tube seals and they do a good job of keeping muck out of the tubes.

X2. Long story I won't bore you with, suffice it to say receiving orders from Superior has been a problem for me, too, in recent months.

There are mixed reviews on the tube seals. Some say that they will only keep any mud & debris that does get in there, hostage. Others think they go a long way in keeping it out in the first place. Water crossings i.e. sippy holes, aren't your friend. I run the tube seals...

I've had the Nitro shafts for about 18 months now. They take full circle clips, seem like a quality product when handling them, and I'm not hesitant tu run them with 35" tires.

I would purchase them again. If you ask ECGS will even press the u-joints for you, saving some assembly time on your end.

ECGS is in VA or something, definitely on the east coast (it's not just a clever name) so I got mine in maybe 4 business days.
