JLUR (running 38s on stock axles) youtube channel...they hit Holy Cross and Carnage Canyon.  NOTE: She claims "they", but she is outside of the vehicle and her man is driving the Jeep.

I watched 15 seconds of the Carnage Canyon video and turned it off. That chicks voice is too annoying and the music sounded like it was from Sesame Street.

Iíve followed their build/adventures over on JL Wrangler Forums. They have a 2.5Ē RC spacer lift. Itís less than $200. Spacer, shock extension and sway bar links i believe is all that is included.
They are a not the only JL running those 38Ē Milestar Patagonias. There are a handful  and they have been running them hard.

The axles have thicker tubes, bigger knuckles, bigger steering linkage. The ring and pinions are a lot different and they say a lot stronger. Theyíve made some nice improvements but I still haven't seen any failure so hard to say what the sweet spot is for these axles over the JK 44s.


One guy just did the Rubicon with a 38 on the magnesium tailgate with no issues. Ive only heard of one tailgate failure and that was a guy at Moab (i believe the size was 37Ē) and he came off a ledge and landed on the tire. Not suprised  that the swinggate was damaged in that scenario. Anyways, someone will break those axles eventually and probably that couple if they dont roll it first. Iíll stop tootiní the JL horn but i sure an happy with mine.

That girl in those vids will never spot for me.

Holy Cross vid @ 14:45 proves it's not that but it is a moment she isn't talking when her mouth is full.

Going through their vids there is at least one funny one. I want to do BlackBear pass with the group but not sure @Raisinhead would make it after seeing this.
