Are we talking about old style Dana 44 with spindles & locking hubs or the unit bearing found on jeeps?

I would be interested in a set as well.

I know that it take some research, developing and testing to get things right, but I'm sure that whatever Ballistic comes out with will be worth the wait.

I agree - this is the last step on making a D44 "bomb proof"

Replacing ball joints every few outings sucks! I really hope these joints come out so i don't have to spend the $$$ on a 60 right now.

Speaking of RCV's, maybe Ballistic or RCV can make the gear to go inside a warn locking hub so you don't have to have 30 spline flanges unless you want to.

Subscribed, hoping you guys come up with a great solution what won't totally break the bank.

I've never broken one (good shafts and joints help there), but they do seem to wear out and get play way sooner than they should.

I'd be down for a set if it meant not replacing them every 6 months.

We have made some real progress on these today, planning and engineering is almost done. I think we should have a real nice product for the 44 and 60 once these are done.

They will not be cheap though... (please don't ask how much just yet, we don't have those figures yet).
