I had a set on my Jeep and decided to remove them. I also saw rust on the inside bolts, but not too that extreme. I live in Dallas so there should have been none.

I am sure it's worse up here in NY, but there is an obivous design flaw with the pin and the tube being open to the elements. I am replacing the steel pin with a solid stainless pin and welding everything prior to re doing the powder coat. At this point I would not recommend this for anyone to buy until they fix the design. Frustrating, but I need them to get to the rack.

Score a used Rubicon rear axle with 4.10 gears and e locker. Just need to find a front axle. If anyone has any leads I'd appreciate the tip. Thanks!20190808_165519.jpg

Yeah I wasn’t impressed with the quality either.

Almost done with my Rubicon axle swap to turn my Sahara into a Saharacon., AEV 3.5" lift install and adam's drive shaft install. Finished off the rear end and just a few little items to button up for the front end. I'm loving the look and stance now. removing axles without a lift was not that bad...moving them out of position and back into position was the pain in the a$$. Dana 44 with lockers are heavy. lol Also put on new brake pads and rotors.

Dana 44 3.21 rear end out.
