What Axle Shafts for Rear D44

Getting ready to start a build on a 2013 JKU sport. Front axle will be replaced with a pro rock 44. Installing an ARB locker in the rear, I want to upgrade the rear shafts. Who's do you recommend? Best warranty??? I don't believe the 35 spline RCV's are in the budget at this time. Thoughts?

Thanks, David M

David, for the rear, I would look at Ten Factory or G2. We do a lot of the Ten Factory and they seem to work rather well!

Most of the offerings are very similar so look for the ones with the best warranty. If they don't cover bent flanges look elsewhere. Also inquire with your supplier about the vendor's responsiveness. Not to name names, but Alloy USA is rather difficult to deal with on their axle shafts, as is Superior. Neither will cover bent flanges, which is the biggest issue with JK Unlimiteds. Ten and G2 will cover bent flanges, and FWIW, I was advised some time ago that G2's shafts are manufactured by Ten Factory. Not sure if that's true or not, but I got a set for spares from 4WD and they do look pretty good. After bending both Superior Evolutions I had to take USA's to get the rig back on the road because they were the only things available at the time. Not expecting much from them long term.
