    Teraflex Full Float Hubs

    So I've just seen they have released 8 lug locking hub conversion for the front with big brake kit. As well they have released 8 lug full float rear.

    Again not a proponent of teraflex, but I don't know
    Anyone else who makes this. If dynatrac would do it I would for sure snatch these up.

    You would buy a full float rear axle in 8 lug and convert your stock front axle to an 8 lug?

    I discovered these surfing the net a while back. Seems like a good idea I guess if your ok with dumping 4-5k in parts for full float 8 lug axles, but then still being on Dana 44 axle/ring and pinion. Kind of seems like a waste to me.

    I don't see the point as you're only beefing up the hub transferring the load off the bearing to the C's. Like others have said its still a 44

    The point is, they'll make a video, people on other forums will tell other people how great it is, and Terabreak will make a shit ton of money. When I first got a Jeep, I thought Teraflex was the best thing going. They had cool videos, and people on other forums will say any old stuff they buy is great, because people don't like to admit to making mistakes.

    You aren't putting any additional load on the Cs. What this does us eliminate the unit bearing as a weak point on these axles. Some people don't like old school hubs and spindles but I do, I would much rather have something I can service instead of just waiting for unit bearings to break and replacing them.

    What this doesn't do us allow you to run a super 60 shaft like the pr44/60 hybrid does. Teraflex includes a 35 spline stub, but you're still stuck with the 1350 u joints because the knuckle is too small.

    I think if you're in the market for big brakes and are already on your 2nd or 3rd set of unit bearings, this might be worth looking into.

    And looking at the parts list this seems like a pretty basic hub and spindle assembly using common and proven parts. Teraflex just machined the spindle to bolt to the knuckle and accept the speed sensor.

    Now the rear FF kit on the other hand is kind of a joke. First I would worry about pressing the spindle in 100% true. Second, the spindles are held in by plug welds. Third, they are only 30 spline shafts. And at $1800, plus $1500 for gears and a locker, plus labor if you don't do it yourself, you could have had a mopar ultimate 60 for the same price.

    I wouldn't want to run it just cause its teraflex. I really want Dynatrac to come out with a locking hub conversion tho for the pr44

    Sounds good and everything, but I'll just stick to my Superduty axles I'm building. Still coming out cheaper than doing all that lol

    What I meant was it transfers the load that was being absorbed by deflection in the bearing during a shock load to the C's because now you have a much more rigid bearing. Classic breaking the weakest link setup.

    The other problem is you now have a specific stub axle that is only available from teraflex.

“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.
