We run them on our 4669 Jeep with no issues! Beat the hell of out of it both on the trails and racing

We also install a ton of these and have not had one issue!

They also just raised their $2k warranty to 2 years now! They stand behind their products and I stand behind them!

It doesn't take much to break 30 spline axles so not that impressive.

It doesn't prove anything and is certainly not impressive. It doesn't take an engineering degree to know that there is a lot more strength in carriers than axle shafts. For most rear axles the most common failures in order are 1) axle shafts 2) R&P 3) carrier. Why do you think axle shafts typically take out carriers instead of the other way around.

Fucking yukon fan boys.

No broken shafts or teeth with this one.... Sorry to bring facts into the conversation.



Fact is (like it or not) Yukon is making a good product and doing testing on it to:
A. Prove its good
B. Try to make it better

If you have a suggestion to how they can do it better Im sure they will want to hear from you

Yep Im a fan boy of Yukon for sure. They are going above and beyond to be better, cheaper, make quality parts. They try to make as much as possible in the US, Support the sport, and come out with new stuff that we ask for.... Shame on them!

Busted ARB right? Not the first I've seen do that.... Just had a Ford 9" do that, that ARB setup themselves. So that right there tells you it couldn't have been the setup, right? lol (I know their shitty setup killed this ARB, I was being very sarcastic)

Hmmmm Catastrophic failure of an ARB. That's not shown in the video...


I was at the hotel in Reno after the Vegas to Reno race a few weeks ago. The ARB rep was there passing out engagement collars like business cards. Then had the balls to say our car was doomed because it was running Yukon lockers, because THEY WILL FAIL. When asked if they fixed the collar issue on the ARB's, he shut up got in his car and drove off.

The part that pisses me off, is his OPINION was unsolicited. Just immediately started bagging on Yukon with no facts.

Here's a fact for you dumbshits at ARB - See the picture of Yukon Zip Locker engagement collar? That's right. That's 100% engagement! so

Yes I sell Yukon and run Yukon in both of my rigs.

I also sell ARB, detroit, Lock-right

Hell I even sell Nitro, 10 factory, Superior, and RCV

There are pro's / cons to everything so please dont try to make a lame argument about that and lets stay on course to what this thread is about....

Quality of the Zip locker.

Ok, well as long as you're giving us your word that you're an unbiased Yukon dealer I'm sure we can trust you.
Anyway, I wasn't making a statement about ARB vs Yukon (I'm not a fanboy of either) so not sure why you got your little pink panties in a bunch. I commented on the snake oil video only. If you really want to make this a tech discussion explain how the video proves that Yukon is making a superior product. 30 spline shafts blew up before the locker. So fucking what. What did you expect? What 30 spline shaft wouldn't blow up before a locker? And as far as carrier damage you know as well as anyone that where the shaft fails as well as the RPM (you might have noticed that the fixture wasn't turning real fast ) plays a big factor in whether or not other parts are damaged.
Back to Yukon's video I also didn't see ARB or any other brands for that matter being tested with the same shafts in the same fixture. Empirical data fail. I do remember however an ARB video showing a zip locker blowing up before the ARB. How do you explain that?
Also post up the pics of the shaft that took out your ARB.

Round and round we go.... Typical Pirate

Fisrt off please do no attack my or my companies integrity!

Get used to the fact someone will post up actual data to a lame post.... If you look up I just stated that 5800ft lbs is not a weak shaft. I still really dont get your point to any of this other than for some reason you do not like the fact that Yukon has a product out and is doing testing on it and making that testing public...??? They are testing their own products for QC...

As for my shafts I would love to take some pics for you but they are still in my buggy and I dont feel like pulling them out for nothing. This happened 1.5 years ago than I went spool. I have had the shafts out a few times since and there were no issues. I have since gone through 1 full set and about 50% through my current BFG Reds (I fill them with water up to the top of the wheel) which is wheeling a lot. Im going to say the shafts are fine.

Lastly Thanks Yukon for coming out with new products and even better yet doing testing to them to ensure they are good!
