Should have put this in years ago, would have saved me a lot of money.
Locked and Loaded, these G2s have taken a beating and still stand up true and absolutely trustworthy. There's no competition for this price and the bang for buck is absolutely absurd. I have these axles in a 2000 TJ with stock 4.0L and some other mods. A short arm for now... but, not much else is needed after putting these bulletproof G2s under my rig. I did have to get new driveshafts and I went ahead and included an Atlas 2 to add to my rig's bulletproofness. I absolutely love the axles and couldn't have asked for a better product. I wouldn't change a thing, the chromolys are incredibly strong, I've put these to the test in some of the harshest trails in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and the slick rock/ canyons of Moab, Utah. I've taken these things where I didn't think my little TJ on a short arm could go. Don't question buying these axles, you will regret going with anything else. I'm on 35s now and soon to be on 37s, I have no worries that this product will outlast not only the Jeep but, maybe even myself.
Great buy for the price. Included a Free ARB Compressor. The Diff arrived in 3 weeks by truck. Needed to shorten front driveshaft by 2.5 inches as the D44 pumpkin is longer than a D30. Great Upgrade with all the best parts included.
I ordered this axle to replace my Dana 30. Once installed I took it to Moab within a month. First trail of the day, hit a hard obstacle (with finesse and not throttle) and sheared the passenger side lower link halfway off the axle. Took to the local 4x4 shop in Moab and they replaced both sides with 3/8" plate steel and box welded them in. Since then this axle has been awesome with no issues. Ordered mine with the E-locker and it works great!
looks great... fits good. had to shortin front drive shaft..had to change top ball joints to get camber right.. but works perfect..one bad jeep now
2006 tj 6 in life 35 tires.. runs like stock looks great go any where with them
I bought this axle after finding out it'd cost me roughly $3000 to max out my HPD30's strength and it'd leave my '92 YJ's 2.5L stressing to turn 35x12.5 mud tires on 15x8 steel wheels.. The axle came bare (no suspension mounts) which made welding on suspension mounts SOA style very easy and it requires your Dana 30 knuckles which let me keep my M.O.R.E. stage 2 steering correction package (just had to weld a trackbar mount into the axle).
was a great buy and a good price it was slapped in in no time flat... only drawback was that i had the Aluminium 44 (don't ask) from a grand Cherokee and the brakes did not fit... the 35 would have been fine but with the lame AL 44 so i had to buy a whole new disc conversion kit
The factory locker in my 2004 TJ Rubicon has begun to fail after 180K miles. The 03-06 factory lockers are non-serviceable and you cannot obtain the factory locker mechanism new from Chrysler anymore. Since there is a laundry list of other small problems with my factory axle I'm considering purchasing one of these premade bolt-in axles but have a few questions. The control arm brackets welded to this axle assembly, are they made of thicker steel than the factory mounts? Or to put it another way; How thick is the metal used to form the control arm brackets on these G2 axles? Also in relation to front upper control arms, are factory style bushings included/preinstalled in the axles upper control arm mounts? Lastly, With an ARB installed there will be a pipe fitting through the differential housing (where compressed air is supplied to engage the locker.) What size National Pipe Thread (NPT) will I need to connect a hose fitting?

Hey Goattrail, the G2 Axle and Gear TJ Dana 44 Front Axle Assembly 4.88 Ratio 30 Spline Axles With ARB Air Locker does come with thicker axle brackets and are 1/4 inch. Bushings will already be in the axle for the upper control arms. There will be provisions for the air plumbing already in the axle housing. Thanks for your question.

I will be ordering this axle this weekend from your company. I will also be ordering an ARB compressor from you. My question is about the ARB compressor...I placed the compact compressor in my cart, but I am not certain as to whether I will need any additional brackets, or whether the air line for the differential comes with either the axle or the compressor. If it does not, please point me to where I can find the air line. I plan to order from Quadratec the stainless brake line kit made by Classic Tube, as I could not find the preformed brake lines for the disc conversion on your site. I also plan to order the two E brake lines made by G2 from Ebay, as I could not find them on your site. I already have 4 new JKS control arms for the rear, and I plan to order a 4.56 ring and pinion with rebuild kit from G2 to regear the front D30 to 4.56, so I think that I will be set to perform the swap. Let me know if you think I missed anything that I may need to order, and compressor opinion

Thanks for your inquiry.

Can this be ordered with the ARB locker diff cover instead of the aluminum cover? I have read about how the G2 cover sticks out really close to the gas tank skid. http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/transmission-drivetrain/1409-1997-jeep-wrangler-axle-upgrade-easy-rearend/

lawvol, the G2 Axle and Gear TJ Dana 44 Rear Axle Assembly 4.88 Ratio 35 Spline Axles With ARB Air Locker And Disc Brakes cannot be changed, but you can order your diff cover of choice separately. Thanks for the question!
