Broke passenger front outer axle ujoint

Went out with the local 4wd club on new years day for the annual Hang Over run. broke the front ujoint climbing a cinder pit.

these ujoints had been replaced about 8yrs ago with spicer 760x joints. caps tac welded to the ears.

thoughts are going with a D50 stub shaft/slip joint and then running 4340 chromo axles and againi 760x ujoints. Anyone have experience running these chromo axles? Looks like JBG is my only resource for them?


RCV's are out of my price range and if i planned on that kinda beef might as well go SAS and a 60.

I never plan on running anything larger than 37" tires.

I have an Aussie locker and 4.88's up front.



here is the Video, sorry if it shows up sideways.

I guess the question you need to ask yourself is “Where do you want the weak link to be?” If the u-joint becomes stronger than the diff gears, then that is what will break next time.

I would think a hub would go before the Ring/Pinion would no? i am running the standard warn hubs. something to consider for sure though.

I had always thought that a hub would go before a u-joint?
