Check out this new U-joint option for folks looking to beef up the front axles on their Rubicon JKs and JKUs from Alloy USA. Lots of earlier JKs are coming up on or already passed the age where U-joint replacement is a good preventive maintenance step to ensure you don’t have issues on the trail.
Direct, Heavy Duty Replacement for OE U-Joints Stand Up to the Stresses of Off-Roading
Alloy USA®, has released new D44 X-Joints for 2007-2015 Jeep® Wrangler (JK).
Available for JK Wrangler Rubicon and Rubicon Unlimited models equipped with Dana 44 axles, the heavy-duty X-Joints are a direct replacement for the factory U-joints. The X-Joints are manufactured from 8620 case hardened alloy steel and incorporate a number of design features to ensure the joints stand up to the stresses of off-roading.
Each of the X-Joint’s forged bearing caps feature an individual grease Zerk fitting for quick and complete lubrication. In addition, triple ridge seals help keep out dirt and contaminants to maximize joint life. Each Alloy USA X-Joint comes complete with four 360-degree retaining clips, four 180-degree retaining clips and four grease Zerk fittings.
Alloy USA’s D44 X-Joints are backed by Alloy USA’s 5-year limited warranty and are available online and through select Jeep and off-road parts/accessories retailers nationwide with an MSRP of $49.99.
