warn full floating axles

I dont know much about them. The little i do know makes me really like the axles. What i am looking for is what everone thinks of the axle kit. I am staying with my amc 20 rear. For some reason i really like the narrow track. One question i do have is if you weld the rear can you unlock one hub and drive down the street in a normal mannor. Any info what so ever on the axels would be great. Thanks alot.

Re: warn full floating axles

i really like the floater kits, but not on an AMC 20.
the worst part of the AMC 20 is the 2 pc design.. once you have 1 pc axles, the worst part is the thin axle tubes. putting the weight of the jeep on the thin axle tubes isn't going to help this at all. I don't know many people that ever broke a 1 pc AMC 20. I have seen a couple of the hubs on warn floater kits explode so bad we had tro pry parts of it out of the mountian...

Re: warn full floating axles

The hubs seem to be the weak link. A lot of folks don't know that you can order Warn's FF kit without the hubs. Kinda sucks but they don't knock off any on the price without the hubs. Seems like I have heard someone talking down the kit but I can't remember what their beef was, maybe the hubs. I like it myself and am thinking of getting the kit for my Dana 44. Hope to hear more input on these.

Re: warn full floating axles

When you say the worst part of the amc 20 is the 2 piece design are you talking about the warn axles or the stock axles. Believe it or not i am still running the stock 2 piece axles. I normally dont go full blown nuts. So i guess that i havent pushed the axles hard enough. I mostly do hills in the local sand pits, mud and water on state land, and i do like to flex her out where ever i can. Anymore help on this would be great. Here is a pic of my jeep stuck in a hole at Basto state park.
