And I really believe I'll keep this Jeep until it's dead.

This is the reason I put a lot into my axle. I also try the mentality of fixing before it's broke.

G2's new Core44 front axle is thicker/beefier than the rubicon 44, costs $2000 and includes ball joints. The PR44 is only $200 more but doesn't include ball joints. Why would they price it so close??

Rodi, for 35's and your use...I think a built d30 would be just fine.

You can do chromo axles and a truss with what ever locker you want and be good to go. The only thing a stock D44 would have on you is a bigger ring and pinion. Unless you go aftermarket D44 which is big bucks, I think building your D30 would be the way to go. It would be cost efficient.

Won't be going bigger than 35's. More of an expedition vehicle with trips to Utah, Colorado,... Argentina.

Nice

I'm sober and referencing an earlier post. This time.

Getting through Central America in shinny jeeps would be my largest concern. Maybe Atlanta to Alaska would be good.

G2 axles are not the quality of a dynatrac axle. How they oil the gears, bearings, and so on are not even the same. PR are a better design, hence the cost.

the make vinyl wraps to make your vehicle look all rusty. Ha. Actually I was planning on shipping the Jeep to Santiago and driving down and back up to buenos aires.
To Alaska is definitely good too.

Which is why I find it a bad move to price it so high next to PR.

In what situations would the built D30 be compromised? I do plan to continue going to Moab each year. Still not worth it to get an aftermarket 44?
