    VIDEO - JL JOURNAL : The Inner Workings - JL Wrangler Gears vs Dynatrac ProRock 44

    As we've shown in previous episodes of the JL JOURNAL, improvements have definitely been made to the front axle housings that comes on the all new Jeep JL Wrangler. Granted, they are nowhere near what you'll find on a Dynatrac ProRock 44 but there's no denying that do come with beefier end forgings or at least, compared to what came on the JK Wrangler, have thicker brackets and even have slightly larger diameter tubes. But, what about what's inside? In this episode of the JL JOURNAL, Jim McGean, the owner of Dynatrac will show you what the Dana M186 and M210 gears, bearings and other important internal components look like compared to what you'll find in a ProRock 44. We hope you find the information in our video to be useful.



    This is the 3rd 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.

    i guess i was on the channel at the right time. didn't realize this was just published. what a greatly informative series.

    will you be doing a series on the JL rear axle? or maybe i missed it. would be interested in the difference if there is one between the rubicon and stock rears.

    i'm not getting a JL anytime soon as my JK Recon is only 2 years old in April. but, it will be nice to know what to order. if i should go regular axles knowing, they'll both be tossed earlier on or what.

    We have not done a series on the rear axle and there really isn't a need for one. Even Dynatrac would be the first to say that Dana did pretty good with the factory rear axle and for most people, it's all they'll ever need. I should note that this goes for the JL and the JK especially being they are true 44's with 3" tubes. If you're really playing hard enough to warrant a new rear axle, a ProRock 60 or even better, XD60 front and rear is what I would recommend. Full float rear of course.

    cool. i know you are generally anti-truss and this is a JL side of things. but, i'm planning on rolling 37s and staying like that on my JK for a few years minimum. just regeared with Exodus. what do you think of trussing the rear? worth it, not worth it?

    VIDEO - JL JOURNAL : The Inner Workings - JL Wrangler Gears vs Dynatrac ProRock 44

    WAYALIFE+Dynatrac= the best tech videos out there. I’ve watched all the videos you guys have done together. From the pro grip brakes video to the PR60, PR80, XD60 and of course, this series. And while I may not hang a pair of XD60’s under my JK anytime soon, the information is invaluable and can be applied to any vehicle. I’ve always enjoyed listening to the way Jim explains things and after meeting him on the New Years run this year, his depth of knowledge is incredible and you can really sense his passion for it and also how incredibly humble he is. People like Jim are very rare. We’re all lucky to have him and his team in this industry.
    Thanks for getting together and making these videos. I also like the fact that they stay with what works. They aren’t trying to reinvent the wheel and drive costs up. They save all of us a lot of time money and headache. I wish every company followed the Dynatrac model for integrity and customer service. But I’m glad that they are the ones setting the standard.

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.
