Is anyone running a birf-eliminator kit ? I know there fairly expensive, but is it worth it, and how do they hold up.??? Looking for some input, thanks

Birf Eliminator

The main reason is because the birfs seem to be the weak link in the whole truck. Im not a real hard-core 4x4 , probally more like advanced to sometimes hardcore. Anyway my truck is a DD and realibility is very important to me, and besides having to work on the birf on the trail sounds like it really sucks, the birf eliminator seems alot easier and more realible should something fail in the front axle

i think for the price, a 27 spline set of cromos and ringed longfields can't be beat for tires under 38's... but for nearly the same price as the birf-eliminator kit you can get the 30 spline longs and cromos (granted, to take advantage of the increase in strength of both you prolly want to get the hubs drilled, too)

You will go through the same repair if the Eliminator kit fails. They a D-44 axles and if you blow a U-joint, you will more then likely screw the axles up to where they will have to be replaced. I carry a long and short side axle, spare Birfield , and spindle with me at all times. I am not extremely hard core, but neither T nor I are mall runners either!!!! We let the gears (207-1) do the work and not our right foot!!!!! :grinpimp:

I run 39.5x15x15 TSL's with 27 spline longs, and 4140 cromos. No breaks yet and I use the long skinny petal to the right often.

My buddy has the birfield eliminator kit in a cruiser, runs 35's, V8, full roll cage, wife, 2 kids, dog and breaks his short side often. If he didn't buy it he would of went longs but longs weren't out yet.

according to bobby's experiments his 30 spline chromo setup(axles and birfs) are breaking at approximately the same ft/lbs as a stock 35 spline dana 60(ujoint or shaft/ears??)

Yup...That's what I'm talkin about.

Bobby also claims that we can run with the bump-stops cranked in to where we can turn the wheels to 48 degrees (See #5 on his 1st post) :D That's way more than any other birf set-up. I currently run at 30 degrees. Can't wait to throw them in:D

Except when you are leaf sprung you can't turn past 30* anyway.
Get it Hammer Hog!
