    Solid axle has had the spyntec kit out since 2008, if you want a hub conversion. It's made in the USA.

    You can buy a lot of unit bearings for $2000 and it's not like they need to be replaced at every oil change. Me personally, I couldn't see throwing that kind of money at a Dana 30 or Dana 44 and the only time I've felt the need to run 8-lug is when I got up onto 40's. But then, I'm just a mall crawler so you can take what I say for what it's worth.

    Some of the people new to JK's might think you've been doing this for a while. Funny how the Spyntec kit costs less even though it's made in the USA.

    Do you have to swap to an 8 lug to do the hub conversion for locking hubs?

    5X5.5 and it widens your axle an 1" on both sides. I'm pretty sure they sell the rear adapters with their kit.

    And for whatever its worth, Dynatrac commented on an old Spyntec thread and said that they don't see the need for front locking hubs on their PR44.

    True no real need but always just wanted to know if it was possible

    So I know it is not needed but...
    If the price was reasonable, on Rubicat would you run it instead of the spacers up front to pair with the width and 5x5.5 of the rear pr60?

    I ran them for a long time. The spyntec kit.

    Where I don't see the need either, I did love having them and would consider it again after many other upgrades.

    Edit: If I was only going to ever run a 44. I'd save up for a 60 first. 🤑

    Nope. I'd rather be running a ProRock or XD60 up front. Rubicat is only running the setup that she is now because we had a hand-me-down rear axle available from Moby, needed a new front axle in a hurry at the time and so I got the ProRock 44.

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.
