BUT I do agree that the right IFS setup is just as badass as a solid with the added benefit of ground clearance.
    Just get out a saw and your good to go. Same thing we do to keep LCG with larger tires now.

    Easy fix, just run 934 series CV Joints, or for complete bullet proofing run 30 series CV joints with 300m shafts. If mid-engined Baja Class 1 Truggies with 800hp engines run them, I'm sure a jeep will be ok with this


    I would not expect many people to know this, but this is Jim McGean owner of Dynatrac, he is running this exact IRS axle set up in this Chrysler Mfg car with their Drag Package. It's actually a really strong set up.

    Not to say his setup is not strong, but that Challenger does not have 14" of wheel travel to deal with.

    You need to start studying up on off road racing, because transaxles and center diff sections in multiple classes of baja racing and Ultra 4 Unlimited class racing (King of the Hammers) not only have vehicles that run 300-800(+) horsepower, but they also have as much as 28" of wheel travel and have a track width that is the same or not that much wider than my full width solid 1 ton axle JK.

    Dynatrac IFS will work in any of these race cars that have two to three times the suspension travel of your Jeep

    I would like to see the price range of the this dynatrac IFS axle if it is all already out for sale. I wonder if it would be cheaper just to do a solid axle swap in the front?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
