Re: Did you guys check this out?

What I thinkis so cool in the heavy reliance on Suzuki parts, right down to the driveshafts. While the stuff isn't as strong as Dana/Spicer stuff, it makes do.

Many say it is 90% the driver. If you can drive the Zook stuff and not break, that say a lot. Anyone can hammer a D44 or D60 stuff, but it takes a lot of skill to drive a built Zook and stay intact.

Kinda like pulling in an 8 pound Bass on 2 pound test.

Still, I hate it when things break, regardless of the reason. Sometimes you need to get ruthless, no way around it when wheeling hard. I just don't trust some of the components, like the axles and driveshafts.

Re: Did you guys check this out?

They are allready breaking the zook stuff. As long as you want to run moderatly hardcore stuff it will last.
Once you get to 33's and hardcore snap snap goes the
axles. remember we saw them break a front axle at paragon
with that rig. Not trying to be a smart-asX but They are gaining some life for the axles by chopping wieght off the
truck. (smart way to do it). The latest I broke was the
six bolts on the right front locking hub, Snapped them off this last weekend. Its a tough call weather to go up a size in axles or spend Bucks on beefed suzi axles. Not being in love with everything suzuki I am going the Dana route. (The Dark side..) Now I'll take that spare Willys CJ2a body and stick that on the Weasels frame, Yea thats the ticket!

For 38K that thing should have better axles. I can't figure out where the cost is? Gotta be labor, when you have the do it yourself mentality you forget that part.
