    Axle question

    For those running upgraded shafts in the front of thier XJ, what did you go with.
    I'm about to build the 30, and I prefer asking folks rather than reading a magazine article.
    There are a few choices so I'm on the fence. It will be locked as well. Thanks for any input
    Mr. Mike

    I have a set of 4340 chromo inners sitting on standby for mine, I just need to pony up and buy some outers, 125 bucks a side is pretty steep. FWIW I have been running a lockrite on stock shafts for over a year and only popped one ujoint. Come to find out the shaft was an early shaft with a small 260 ujoint. Never broke a 760 even with some very rough treatment locked and unlocked.
