    Need pics of D30 failures, quick!

    Iíve been making plans for a PR44 to replace my D30 in Spider. Some of my plug welds donít look great even though all but a few months of ownership (since new) have been in the Southwest.

    I showed my darling wife today how the plug welds are rusted but nothing much else on the front axle while the rear looks fine. I tried my Google and Bing-foo for axle tube breaks without luck.

    Show me what you got, ASAP! I almost have her sold!

    Cool

    I don't have any disaster pictures to show you, but I just got rid of the 30 and replaced it with the dynatrac trail leader package. That beautiful prorock 44 allows me to have the confidence that my jeep will go anywhere. Better than that, it will get me home. Nobody knows when or if a catastrophic failure will occur on your front axle, but know this, if out on the trails when it happens the cost of getting home will definitely out way the cost of that 44. My wife was really not onboard with the jump from 35 to 37's but now says the jeep rides better than when it was new. She's sold. Best of luck to you. I am sure you will gets lots of pics.

    Thanks! That is helpful. I would like to end up on 37ís in the next couple years and know the D30 wonít cut it for long in the AZ rocks. My wife didnít understand the 4Ē lift that was recently added but she really likes it now.

    Just Google JK axle tube breaks. Plenty on there. Although most are near the passenger upper control arm mount. I remember a post on here some time ago where a trussed axle was broken off at the diff though. Scary. I feel a lot more confident with my PR44U.

    Youíre seriously going to use the members of Wayalife to send you pictures to fool your wife into agreeing to let you upgrade your Jeep? Seriously?

    I thought you were in the Marines? Don't be a pussy. Tell her that you bought the axle and she'd better like it.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
