Seems like a 4340 chromoly axle, to me...and at $850 for a Dana 44, they're not exactly cheap.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

From the website:

http://www.dana-axles.com/Titanium-A...ential-P1.aspx

Terms of Warranty

You break it we'll replace it. We are so confident in the strength and integrity of our axles that we are offering a limited lifetime warranty. We've have no fine print and want you to be satisfied with your purchase.

Each axle is warrantied to the original purchase. If for any reason in the first 60 days of purchase you break your axle, send it in and the next one is on us. Should something happen to the axle after 60 days of original purchase, buyer will pay a flat fee of $50 to have a brand new axle shipped to to them. Titanium Axle CV joints are warrantied for 12 months after date of purchase. Titanium Axle shafts are warrantied for the lifetime of the axle to the original purchaser. Before we can send a new axle we must have proof of purchase and proof of breakage.

Interesting. Titanium is the brand name, not the material obviously. They're Dana so you can safely assume top quality. Those would be fun to try out.

They are NOT Dana parts. They just make them to fit Dana axles. The site is registered to Primal Offroad, and those of us in Indiana have to pay a 7% sales tax... So I don't know if that means they are an Indiana company, or if that Internet sales tax law I heard about at some point (dont remember if it was national or state) passed. Either way, unless there's a hefty discount for being a new company by way of a military discount, I'll stick with the proven quality of longfields...and their lifetime warranty.

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

I guess I was assuming since the website was dana-axles.com, they were just a Dana-owned company. Hmmm, never heard of Primal and Google doesn't turn up much. Well, I need more information on the company and the axles.

I'd like to see a comparison with RCVs. Namely strength, but also wondering how big the CV joint is. Will it interfere with the Vanco brackets like RCVs do..?

Haven't you had enough axle work to last you for awhile?
