    Agreed. Also, with used axles, you may not know the history of what they've been through.

    True, but really the only thing you're really keeping is the housing after changing the gears, steering, brakes and things like that. I would think it would be pretty hard to mess up a housing in a truck that would be on road its entire life

    This. I had mine built by a vendor that specializes in JK superduty conversion axles and aluminum steering(should be able to google them) for less than the cost of just a front ProRock 60. Only thing used on mine are the housings(completely stripped) and rear oem sterling shafts. Added RCVs for more beef in the front.

    Haha I know exactly who you're talking about! I've actually called them asking for advice on some stuff. Very helpful guys! I'm keeping my stock shafts for now. I'll get chromo when I break them lol. And my swap is gonna cost less than ProRocks and I've also stretching mine, doing Struts and a tri 4 link rear.

    Like Webster said I did Atlas, ORIs, wheels, driveshafts and axles for about the same price as you can get a set of prorocks now since they lowered the price. When I did mine they were a few grand more for the axles and thats without all the rest of the stuff. If I wasnt doing the work the prorock route would be much more appealing. If I had to guess id say buy the time you paid a shop there wouldnt be much of a price difference.

    Update!

    I'd post some pictures but my phone isn't letting me but so far I have the artec 1ton swapkit, Artec 60T tone rings and sensor mounts,ruff stuff cover, grizzly locker, 5.38s,1350 yoke, install kit, rotors and pads.
    Just waiting for the abs stuff and pinion yoke to get delivered.

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.
