    So what's this? A semi-float with thicker flanges or what?

    That’s what it looks like, says “full float strength without the weight” so looks to be semi float

    going to be very annoying if that is the case. i'm hoping "profloat" isn't just another useless marketing gimmick.

    This is what the sales manager was alluding to in an email exchange between us a couple years ago. This is his copied & pasted response:

    Dynatrac is working on a possible semi-float shaft system that can handle more weight and abuse. I don’t know a lot about what is happening or even if it will ever be a viable product. You can count on us to tell the world immediately if/when we have something!

    Interesting. I want to see more on this....

    Edit: Looking at the pic again I can see how much thicker the flange root is compared to what my SF flanges look like. Still not interested. If you're gonna move up to a 60 rear, keep movin

    So, looking at the picture, it looks like behind the flange the axle starts out huge, and is tapering towards the bearing.

    The problem is that they bend at, or very close to the bearing usually.

    Everything is a compromise. To get the shaft thicker where it needs to be, the only solution I can think of is a larger ID on the bearing. That would mean a thinner bearing, ie: smaller ball bearings.

    What would be the trade off, shorter bearing life in exchange for a stronger shaft. Maybe they were able to find the ideal balance.

    Yeah, it's not possible to have a FF in a 5x5 lug pattern as the axle hub diameter is too large to allow it. 5x5.5 is the smallest they can make it. Just for shits & giggles I asked if the shafts are interchangeable between the new ProFloat
    60 and my SF PR60.

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.
