Are breaking axles common with JKUs? How about with the Rubi? I'm sure bigger tires put more stress as well as climbing the sheer rock faces you guys do but is this something I need to consider soon with my 2011 Rubi?

The possibility of breaking an axle always exists, but the weight of your wheels and tires as well as how aggressive you wheel plays a big part.

For me its a little added piece of mind. I'm running 37"s and I'm drawn like a magnet to bigger rocks, & harder lines. Most of the pics I've seen, the splines were twisted on the factory shafts which could have eventually failed.
Keep in mind, and at my dismay, when I ordered these as a kit, the kit did not include the retainer plates. Those I had to order separately. I'll be getting front shafts hopefully before next summer.
