Sticking with the radius arms or ditching them?

All of their stuff is BEEFY. I have their frame stiffeners, rock sliders, and long arm upgrade. Great stuff!

You now have jeep aids.

It's spreading rapidly through the use of Dana 44s!

I got offered almost twice what I paid for these axles. I might sell them... Because I found a set of 60s for what I can for these axles.

Definitely sell and go for the 60's. Its the same amount of work with either axle. Once you go 60's you will be done upgrading axles. A completely stock King pin 60 is stronger than a 44 that you dump thousands of $$$ into.

You wont be disappointed.

It really depends man.
My axle with jk gears and a set of rcvs would cost less than a 60 and will have 2 more inches of clearance

Not really. You could dump over $2500 into an HP44 and still wont be stronger than a completely stock HP60. That is a fact.

You do lose a little ground clearance but the trade off is by far worth it.

I'm not getting my hopes up on the 60s. I'm not scheduled to be off work until the 18th of next month.

I disagree it will have weaker r&p bu the shafts will be stronger. And with jk gears that puts me at the same torque to break as a Dana 60
