Ive heard great things about Synergy and RPM so open to them as well.

Good point about waiting to upgrade rear until I bend a flange. Upgrade front ahead of breakage or keep spares?

I have a question - Why do you not like Teraflex? Did something happen? I understand why you like Dynatrac (great products and personal friends of yours, though I feel like you have always been honest about their products). Just wondering why the dislike for Tera.
If you can afford to make the front axle upgrade now, I might consider it especially if you have a Rubicon and your front axle is still straight. This is something you can sell and use the money to help pay for your upgrade.

Regarding TeraFlex, I've personally installed and tested out a myriad of their products and have found many of them to be, just okay. A lot of this is because their stuff is made in China - don't let the "designed and assembled in the USA" thing fool you. But, the biggest problem I have with them is that I have seen a lot of their stuff break. Critical things like track bars, control arm mounts and even on their own rigs but the one that got me the most was their tire carrier breaking. This was very serious and potentially life threating and rather than issue a recall like they should have, they just quietly replaced ones that customers called in to say was broken and then re-designed the part. This is true of their track bars as well. To me, this kind of business practice is shameful. To put money before the safety of others is not something I want to support.

Here are just a few examples of what I'm talking about.


One of the reasons I think you and your company has such a great name is because you are honest. Brutely honest. Thats all I want in this world :D
LOL - I'm glad you feel this way. I know that I'm also one of the most hated out there because of it.

You're not the only one who gets in trouble for honesty. I just feel like no need to sugarcoat shit. I personally havent had any issues with TFs stuff but I also understand others may have.

Thanks again for all of the input, I really appreciate it. Maybe I will get a PR44 ordered for Christmas :D

I ordered Dynatracs Thanksgiving of 2020, picked them up late July of 2021. It's a wait, but worth it in my opinion. Now, to get off my ass and get them installed.

Yea, they've had a huge backlog on receiving their pumpkin castings from the forge is what I was told, and then it was axle shafts, they also sat for a while waiting on the ARB lockers. Looks like everything they don't make in house really. I did get Iron knuckles without asking instead of aluminum, which is a plus in my opinion. My Kings took just as long actually, I ordered during the worldwide shutdown/panic though, so I was prepared for a wait.

Glad you were willing and happy to wait for a well made axle but to be clear, people were having to wait that long even, before the virus shit show.

Can the e-lockers be added easily. My JT didn’t have them from the factory
I'd be curious about this too. Did you get the max tow? From my understanding the max tow axles and rubicon axles are identical (minus the lockers themselves).

Here's another vote for the Synergy steering products, mine have held up great... They're made in the US, and I've met several Polyperformance / Synergy employees out and about over the years and so far they have all seemed to be great people.

If you can get the custom width you want I'd go that route. Getting the right scrub radius makes a bigger difference than people think. With the standard UD60s it seems like you have to push the wheel way out to clear everything.
