U-Joint and Ball-Joint question

Who makes the best U-Joint, Ball-Joints, and unit bearings for stock TJ application? I need U-Joints that you can be used on the highway, so no CTM style ones.

Why wouldn't you want to use the CMT u-joints on the highway?

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

Everyone has told me that they will burn up if you use them for highway driving.

Sounds like a case of "free advice". I've not heard anything like this. There is no mention of a problem with highway use on their web site and I would think there would be if it was truely a problem. If I'm going to produce a product with a life time warranty I think I might discourage the user from doing things with my product that will cause it to fail.

If U-joints are your game, then Spicer is your name.

The top and doors on this vehicle are designed only for protection against the elements. Do not rely on the top and doors to contain occupants within the vehicle or to protect against injury during an accident. Wear seatbelts at all times.

From what I have researched they are not rated for speeds over 40 mph because they do not use needle bearings in them. They are intended for off-road use only.
