Lifting a tire while spinning, and especially if locked, will make your D30 sad. For JK's C gussets and a truss seem to be key. A fully polished 30 would be a full case locker, chyro'd gears, chromos or RCV's (or at least do full circle clips on a u joint), truss and good brackets and junk. Would be a nice set up for no bigger than 35's and a non Jim esk driving style lol

I'm game for Alaska, drug cartel activity has to slow down before South America opens up. Say 2015?

but is that really something to worry about in chile and Argentina? I have a bunch of cousins in Chile so it's more reason for me to go there. Never met them. If the answer is no, a shipping container to Vaparaiso and a flight to Santiago is an easy decision for me.

Alaska would rock, as long as there was time to venture off in British Columbia for Molybdenite or however it's spelled.

thanks Will and Tony. How much would I really save by strengthening the 30 and getting new axles?

Shipping cost is greater than gas cost. Plus Central America has a lot to offer. Just gotta let the heat cool down.

If your an amazon prime member watch wreck trek. Great idea, folks who did it will aggravate ya though.

Atlanta to LA to chugach national forest then back the eastern route Calgary through Montana etc.

Small trips to help knowing where to spend money on rig. Like the blue ridge line.

I'll check it out tomorrow night.
One of my cousins is in La Paz catching a ferry to Mazatlan right now. Started in Oregon and headed for Brazil. On a little motorcycle. With his wife.

Why cryo gears? You understand that they become brittle and they actually break easier? These is less give in them, so in other words they don't enjoy shock loading them. They will last longer under hard acceleration but that is not shock loading like in offroading. The idea came from F1 racing, but is not for offroading.

I was looking at Ten Factor Chromoly shafts as opposed to RCV. No Bueno?

They're brittle if they are done wrong.

Tony, blue Wes and I all run ten factory chromos with no problems. I got mine for a steal via CL.

The brittle thing for cryo parts has been mentioned twice by Tripp (different threads) and twice it has been countered by others.  Can everyone show their source of information so others can tell what is internet lore versus scientifically based?

So we're freezing jeep parts for deep sleep or because they're incarcerated?
