I think they are supposed to be fine, I doubt you will find anyone on here running one though. Those things cost more than some peoples jeeps.

I bought a high pinion 3rd member from them with 4.56 gears, and a 31 spline detroit. It was something like $1150. The 3rd member is cast using nodular steel and has extra webbbing to support the carrier. It was only a couple hundred more than regular nodular 9" 3rd members set up similarly.

I bought a housing from a junkyard for $50. Put the caddy calipers ($50) on it with the CJ rotors ($50) and warn brackets($90) .

Currie 9s are no more expensive then buying a new axle from Dynatrac, etc.
That doesn't mean there cheap, they aren't.

I have a set (F&R) of Currie 9s in my jeep that I picked up from a Jeep I bought and resold. I am running 36s and they are holding up fine.
