Well I waited long enough for 4wheel parts to have a sale. :jammin: Today I ordered the cast steel Rock Jock with a 35 spline ARB, 456 gears, alloy shafts, skid plate, G2 cast aluminum diff cover,shock mounts, spring pads,1310 yoke and no brakes. Terry will use the brakes off of my current 44.

The G2 Rock Jocks are hands down the best deal, with sales tax and shipping my axle came out to $2800.00. :cool:

Now the wait :cry: 4 week lead time

Oh yea, and sell a few things to pay the bill :idea:

I might be interested in some 35" Krawlers for the XJ if you decide to upgrade - hint, hint...

Did you call Currie to get that price?

When I look on their webpage it shows them being much more expensive. I also tried G2's page and I couldn't seem to build one there.

I ordered it from 4Wheel Parts. I checked the price online and then called. The guy on the phone gave me a better price on the axle, shipping charge and threw in the nicer diff cover.

Terry installed a nice truss on it and sleeved the 1/4" wall tubes with another 1/4" of DOM. That should end my housing bending issues. :biggrin:
