    BUILDING a DYNATRAC PROROCK 44 : A Close Up Look at How an Awesome Front Axle is Made

    It was a little over 10 years ago that Cindy and installed our very first Dynatrac product on Moby, a ProRock 60 front axle. Since that time, we've been able to rack up well over 150,000 miles, driving him all across America and putting his axle to the test, all along the way. Now, that would include testing it out on dirt, across the sand, through the snow, in the mud, out on tons of rocks and of course, bombing our way across the desert. While it may not look as pretty as the day we got it installed, it is worth nothing is that everything on it is still 100% original. In other words, the housing, ring and pinion, locker, axle shafts and u-joints are all the same things that we've been punishing, all this time. And, it's because of this long resume of use and abuse that we were convinced, a Dynatrac was going to be the axle for us, when it came time to upgrade the one on our Jeep JL Wrangler.

    In this feature length video, you'll get learn all about the Dynatrac ProRock 44 being made for the Jeep JL Wrangler, what makes it such an awesome front axle and see how it's made from start to finish, right here in the U.S.A.! We hope you enjoy our presentation and find it to be informative.



    Clearly, a ProRock 44 is far from being something everyone needs and I might even go so far as to say, most people may never need. Certainly, churching it up and trying to convince you of otherwise is NOT the reason why Cindy and I decided to make this video series. All we would ever hope to do is share why we chose to get one for our JL Wrangler and based on our experiences running ProRock axles over the last 10 years and across thousands of miles on Moby, Rubicat and even Nemo. However, I wouldn’t want you to take my word for it. Instead, I would encourage you to look through the myriad of videos that we’ve made since 2007 and see for yourself, just how strong and reliable, all our Dynatrac axles have been for us. Thanks for watching.

    Great video as usual! Thanks for the in-depth look at the quality effort that goes into building these quality axles! Can you share more about your choice to use RCV shafts?

    Awesome video
    Great seeing step by step fabrication, setup, and install

    Surprised to see RCVs installed. What drove that decision?

    You know, that would definitely be better than popcorn. I honestly would do the same

    Unfortunately, the RCV's were the only thing available at this time. Definitely not my first choice if only because of how much more they cost.

    Thank you, we're so glad you enjoyed it

    The 5.13's are a nice addition in that they give you a lot more power off the line. Crawling is really nice as well. The down side to them is that you will loose some MPG and passing on the highway is a bit harder to do. We'll make a video about all this.

    Regarding the Tazer, all you need to do is turn off the FAD and the front locker. We'll include this in the video.

    Yeah, like I said, not our first choice but if we wanted to do this now, they were the only option available right now.

    Incredibly informative video! The detail on the install of the ARB carrier was awesome. They make it look so easy. Also curious why you chose the RCV shafts.
    Edit: scratch the shaft question, I see you answered it.

    We're glad that we were able to share this with you. Regarding the RCV's, as mentioned, they were the only thing available at this time that would work with this application. Trust me, not my first choice by any means.

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.
