    It would be cool to mount a go pro somewhere you could watch the tre’s and how they move as the axles articulate and twist. Entertaining the theory of using them just for argument sake. The lower control arms at the axle side would be most concerning to me. Are they using them there also? Most likely spot to take a hit and pop the socket out.

    I absolutely agree this is not how it should be done anymore. We have much better hardware now. Still interested to see how it may have worked. At the very least it makes an interesting thread for awhile. Thanks for sharing!

    As for concern about popping one out of its socket, I would have none. Now that he has shown the size, they are the same thing as on my off road water trucks. I have seen the whole front end propped up off the ground on a rock, without popping one out, that's with a 60,000 Lb truck, and over 20,000 on the axle being held up by the time rod and said ends.

    If it will do that year after year without fail, nothing you could do with it in a Jeep is going to be a problem.

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.
