I am not in the market for new axles at the moment but I am curious to know what are the differences between the Revolution and Discovery axles and u joints?
The Revolution Axle are US Made 4340 Chrome-Moly inner & stub axles, include 2 Dana Spicer 5-7166X U-joints and 8 Full Circle Snap rings to hold it all together. Revolution uses the large “1350” style u-joint for all if our Jeep application. Using the substantially larger 1350 u-join provides a substantial strength increase over the smaller 5-760X joint and allows extra clearance for tighter turning. All Revolution Axles are backed by a fantastic lifetime warranty against failures, including but not limited to U-Joint failure.
The Discovery Axles are imported 4340 Chrome-Moly inner & stub axles, includes 2 Dana Spicer 5-7166X U-joints, and only have a 10 year warranty.
I have to call to double check on the full circle clips
TL;DR: The big difference is where they are made and the length of the warranty
Do they offer custom cut/length at all
Whenever I do get around to putting my 44 under the front my rig, I’ll need at least a set of chromos or rcv’s if the budget allows. I believe a stock shaft won’t work with what I had built. I’ll have to pull the shafts to take measurements at some point
They do not do custom shafts.
A good note is that the Jeep shafts use the bigger Rubicon u-joint.
Also I have confirmed that broken shafts from u-joint failure is covered by the warranty on all Revolution Axles… Not many manufactures cover this
