Rockwell shafts?

Is there any chance Yukon will put out some shafts like OEM Super 16's or the 47 spline monsters? I would be interrested in the replacement/upgrade 16 splines, so I can keep my Grizzly lockers.

Be nice to have some other options other than OEMs.

I heard through the grape vine RCV is working on some new shafts, I may have to look them up instead.

Seriously no response or interrest in the market for replacement shafts for Rockwells from Yukon? There is a growing market for Rockwell parts, and I'm in that market, as well as many guys in my area building rigs for serious competition. Have to say I'm a little dissapointed.

We currently do not have any plans for production.

The problem is demand. If you look at the amount of guys running 60's or 14 bolts next to rockwells it just doesn't add up. I ran into this years ago when I did a rockwell build on 49's. I had to go with the 47 spline ouverson stuff and my kids will now have to skip college as I spent their education funds on OE products

My daughter is going to be pissed! Oh well, she can join the military instead. It would be nice if there was a less expensive alternative than Ouverson. Thier stuff is awesome, but is it really worth the price?

You can put me on that list, I would be all about some Yukon shafts for my rocks. Guess I'll just keep a stockpile of stockers for now

Add me to the list as well. Just picked up 2 steering rocks for a project and wouldnt mind buying some shafts and keeping the stockers as spares.

I too would like to see some competition for OEM. But more importantly I would like to see something that falls in between the stock 16 spline and the OEM 47 spline. I don't want to go 47 spline mainly because I feel they would just transfer the "weak link" to a more valuable part like output shafts.

So a product similar to the cro-mo's 16 spline that OEM puts out would be nice.

I agree, Im not at the point where I want to be boring spindles and replacing the diff yet. A set of stock replacements would be awesome.

I talked to Ben Spinney(SpinneyBent) who competed in TTC last year, and he said nobody running the OEM Super 16s broke a shaft. Not even running 54's. That's what I'm looking for. An axle to replace the stockers, without having to replace everything else. For the price of the 47 splines, it's cheaper to go to 2.5/5 ton hybrid axles.

That is good to know.

This is great info!

I am not having issues currently but I am running almost worn out 44 TSL's . When I put the new 44 boggers on is when I expect I'll start popping shafts. I would like to have a good option to go to that doesn't require selling organs on the black market

I was hooked up by Yukon with partial sponsorship on my Grizzly lockers. I am still getting the rig together, and I hope I can keep the lockers and not have to swap them out for bigger spline diffs. Guess there's only one way to find out.

Judging by that video, I would say the stock 16 spliners. They break from time to time (trust me)

I just know for a fact I will be in the market for some new shafts, and would rather spend it in the great NW.

Figured I'd bump this. I'm seeing more and more builds with rocks and stock Ujoint shafts are getting harder to find.

Rocks are the new tons, so you'd think more mfg's would be supporting the current trends. I was hoping for another player in the game for axles, at least to put prices in check.

Specially with how its getting harder to find stock U joint shafts for reasonable prices. Id much rather spend a little more and get a better shaft.

Now that I'm in Top Truck Challenge 2013, I could really use some new axle shafts! How about it guys?
