G2's high strength axle shafts are engineered to withstand the added load of high torque applications and to remedy the common faults found with factory shafts. Forged from high grade alloy steel and heat treated to exceed OEM specifications, these axles are designed for extended service life. Added features such as Big Spline options, rolled splines and use of better materials allow you to confidently run larger tires without the risk of failure.
I have a locker in the front and 33" tsl boggers and this upgrade was a neccesary one because I was destroying axle shafts like nothing. I haven't had any issues with them since installed, and installation was a breeze since they were already pre assembled.

5.0A Well-Built set of Axle Shafts
I have yet to install these shafts in my Dana44.
Upon initially examining them, there are noticeable differences compared to the stock axle shafts. The yoke ears are beefy and have added material all over. The caps of the 5-760x U-joints are actually recessed slightly into the ears, unlike the stock shafts that are so thin, the 297x U-joint caps stick out a bit. The full-circle C-clips are a sight to behold after dealing with old half-clips that like to fall off.
Besides the meaty yoke ears, the shafts themselves are much thicker near the splined ends, and the long-side shaft has a 'stepped' diameter that I've read helps equalize torsional loads on both sides of the axle for longer life of all moving parts.
These come in-box fully assembled, and are a great price and very available. All of the needed engineering to make a better, stronger shaft for this axle has been covered in the design of these new shafts. I am very excited to install them!

the axles are great had originally 36 inch tires and now have been able to step up into 38.5 inch tires and feel confident with my truck to be able to run it a little bit harder thanks
Hello Roadrunner, the G2 Axle and Gear Dana 30 Front Axle Kit part# G/298-2031-001 does not come with serviceable u joints. The 5-760x joint that comes in this kit is heavy duty and 30% stronger than a serviceable joint. Thank you for your question.
Thank you for the question. This upgrade will require a 30 spline hub
I am wondering if this product will work in a 1976 jeep J20 pickup that has a stock Dana 44 open knuckle front, spline counts are the same just curious about the inner and out lengths of product. thank you
Answer this question
The driver side inner axle is 33.19" long and the passenger is 14.69" for the 74-79 Disc brake axle. If these are not the lengths you require please contact us with the axle lengths you require and we will be happy to see what we can get. Thank You
