    30 inner and 32 outer on the shafts. And yes you can upgrade to a 35 spline locker but shafts for the front are limited in availability.

    Cool thanks for the info. How many hours should a shop charge for the install of the EVO Enforcer Pro Stage2. My local shop is quoting me at 15 hours?

    If you're semi mechanically inclined I'd suggest installing it yourself. Best to get to know your jeep in case you have to perform trail repairs.

    I've installed 99% of my parts however I've never worked with coilovers myself neither has my dad. If I attempt it myself I'd half to wait till end of June July as my dad had surgery and is in a cast till then. Was floating the idea of having the shop just knock it out now as I have the extra cash. But I would be able to get the ProRock right away if I did it myself. They want 1400 to do the lift alignment and drive shafts.

    If you could install a standard spring lift, I don't think you'd have an issue with the bolt-on CO's. But yeah, if you're not wanting to wait for you dad and aren't comfortable doing the install yourself it may be better to have a shop handle it for you. I just personally prefer to install whatever I can myself.

    Sorry to revive an older thread. Looking to reinforce my 2015 rubicon dana 44s for an eventual upgrade to 37s and wanted to get group opinion..

    I currently have C-gussets, evo sleeves (did this before reading up and hearing that it's not necessary), and upgraded aftermarket ball joints on the front axle. Running 35s with the 4.1 Gearing.

    I'm looking to regear to 4.88 (daily driver) and would like to do shafts.

    Which option would you guys choose? The cost is progressively higher as we go from 1 to 4 and at some point would be better to just invest in Prorock44 -- but I'm not quite there yet. I think the upgraded axles will probably last me ... but let me know if you disagree.

    2. 4340 front Chromoly Axle kit with 1350 ujoints

    What ever axle shafts you get can be swapped over to a PR44 housing later.

    Never heard of 760 joints.

    I think the difference between 2 and 3 will be the warranty (lifetime v less than lifetime). Other than that and price, they probably will be the same.

    The consensus on this forum seems to be that RCVs are not worth the money and the warranty sucks.

    Skip these. Over priced for our needs on a Jeep and the balls inside the joints wear out giving you irritating as hell snapping & popping noises as you turn. Stick with full circle u-joints & chromo shafts & spend the savings on other stuff.

    Revolution shafts, Regear, and call it good until your housing goes down- it probably never will. In the meantime save for a PR44 housing and all your internals will swap over.

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.
