    Post ROAM JL Rubicon Replacement Front Axle Housing

    Production factoring of the first JL M210 Replacement Front Axle Housing:


    - 1/2" wall chromoly axle tubes.

    - Ductile iron pumpkin, with: rotated cover line, smooth high clearance surfaces that helps clearance and provides protection over obstacles, plenty of ribs/gussets to improve strength while dissipating heat. >3 quarts oil capacity.

    - 1/4" laser cut high strength steel brackets.

    - Forged steering knuckles.

    - Priority pinion bearing oiling system, designed with CFD (computational fluid dynamics): not only is oil flow increased when rock crawling (and under low speed), oil flow is also increased under high speed. An integrated oil scraper pressurizes the pinion bearing oil supply when in motion even when the axle is tilted at >60 degrees while reducing windage for better rotational efficiency (3D oil system reservoir with independent oil chambers; designed to keep oil flowing to the bearings when tilted in any direction).

    The axle tubes and the diff housing are all CNC machined for a precise interference fit prior to being pressed/installed.

    Custom orderable in any width (must be stock width or wider).

    Pre-installed inner seals and upper control arm bushings.

    Powdercoated with a 2 stage textured poly powdercoat for durability. Exceeds all OE specifications for resistance to the elements.

    Made with pride in the U. S. of A. (All of our housings are designed, cast, machined, welded, and finished in the US. All remaining components are US sourced with a preference for US made. Our full axle assemblies currently use an OE JL E-Locker via core exchange.)

    You are keeping the disconnect? What diameter tube? 1/2" chromoly is crazy thick unless you are keeping stock diameter tubes.

    3.5" chromoly tube. 1/2" wall. We've done the math and have tested back to back vs 0.375 wall and the weight gain isn't that bad, plus the extra cost in going with 1/2" isn't adding that much to the bill of materials... 0.375 wall will be an available option though.

    Do you mean a more detailed picture or a one pulled apart?

    Here's one of our axle housings that we just pulled from one of our development platforms for analysis after EJS 2019 (this axle housing is stock Rubicon width, with the FAD still installed, and has our low profile forged steering knuckles installed because of the stock Rubicon axle width requirement):

About us
wayoflife is a moniker that Ive 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.
