The u-joints vary by Rubicon axle model year, 2003-4 or 2005-6. Do you know what model year Rubicon your axles came out of?@Jerry Bransford
I’ve read through this thread and a couple others trying to determine for myself which u joints I need, but a few variables are making it a little confusing so I figured I would ask you and get a definite answer to eliminate any mistakes.
my Jeep is a 2001 sport but I have rubicon d44s front and rear, SYE and CV driveshaft. I’d like to get the upgraded stronger u joints, wherever possible. When you have time could you please let me know the part numbers and quantity I need. If you need any pictures of the cv shaft or anything just let me know.
I’ll be doing chromo axle shafts soon and want to go ahead and replace/upgrade to stronger u joints on the axles and driveshafts at the same time.
You have to know what size u-joints the driveshaft is set up for. Factory size is 1310 but you have an aftermarket CV shaft which is probably 1310 but it could be 1330 too.@Jerry Bransford
I have been slammed lately and haven’t had time to measure the u joints yet. I was thinking though, I’m planning to upgrade to RGA chromoly shafts front and rear so I don’t THINK the axle u joint size would be an issue then since the fronts come with new u joints.
Since the issue is different size u joints for different year model rubicon axles, 03-04 and 05-06, Do I still need to measure the driveshaft u joints or can I just go with the 1330 without issue? To recap the rear has a CV shaft, not sure of manufacturer.
thank you sir.
