You missed the mark here. Show me another 5 lug axle that is as beefy as a JL D44. There are tons of them running around on 40’s that get “wheeled”. No, it’s not a steering 14 bolt on 300m RCV’s, but it’s definitely stout for what it comes in.I would be surprised if someone isn't already working on fitting a JK/JL spec axle and suspension in the front.
I just hope the IFS isn't junk.
The only good thing about the Jeeps having a straight front axle, is that it's easier to swap out the axle for something that doesn't suck so hard.
