    Man, that would be great. Timing is really tough though. I was hoping to leave on Monday and take our time but now, we may not be able to leave until Tuesday evening. That'd me we'd have to cannon ball it out there and that would suck. If so, there might be time on the return trip.

    What does the shop do with all those OEM parts they take off?
    Good stuff gets saved to be sold off later but most ends up going to scrap.

    So, right off the bat, I'm actually impressed with what I'm seeing especially for a crate axle. The knuckles are massive and made of iron, the ball joints are big, the brakes are massive and the shafts are HUGE. Up front, they're way bigger than what you can get on other crate axles. While their brackets are a lot beefier, they are only robot welded and so the corners aren't wrapped. This is easily fixable by any reputable shop. Also, while I love how big the front shafts are, I would have preferred they came with full circle clips as opposed to c-clips. When it comes to the battle of the crates, Dana really did well with the UD60 and other companies should feel threatened by it.

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.
