    Question VIDEO - JL JOURNAL : Which Would You Want - JL Wrangler Axle Tubes vs Dynatrac PR44

    Let's face it, when it comes to the strength of an axle housing, size matters! There really are no two ways about it and it is the reason why Dana finally decided to up-size the tube diameter on the front axles they make for the all new Jeep JL Wrangler. However, how much of an improvement did they actually make? Was it really enough to make a difference especially with them being wider and how does it stack up against a Dynatrac ProRock 44? In this episode of JL JOURNAL, you'll get a close up look at axle tube sizes and their wall thickness and you can decide for yourself - which would you want?



    This is the first in a series of JL JOURNAL's that we've made to help educate people about JL Wrangler axles and why you might want to consider a Dynatrac ProRock 44. We hope that you'll find them to be informative. Please check back soon for our next installment.

    Awesome video. It's great how Jim can explain things so us regular people can understand...haha. That new tube is huge. I'm curious as to what the PR60 or even 80 for the JL is going to look like. Hopefully its in the cards but I'm hoping for a PR44 under the JK in the coming months. Another great video thanks for sharing.

    Well, the PR60 used what you see in this video - what the PR44JL will come with. The XD60 comes with 3.75" diameter tubes that have a 5/16" wall. The PR80 has a 4" diameter tube with .25" wall chromoly tubes.

    That video perfectly explains the difference. Also, based on your comments about the width of the JLR axle versus the JLS axle, am I correct that the latter should be stronger? (Given the fact that a narrow length tube that is the same diameter as a wider tube should be stronger and have less stress.)

    LOL - someone is really paying close attention. YES, the Sport and Sahara axle would technically be stronger than a Rubicon if only because it's made with the same tube but narrower. They would have less leverage on them.

    With the added tube strength would you guys feel okay about running 40’s on the PR44JL providing you were also running a good chromoly shaft as well? Or would 37’s still be the max you’d run on it?
