RCV HIGH STRENGTH

Problem

FRONT AXLE U-JOINTS AND DRIVE SHAFTS BREAK

  • You're wheeling up some tough rocks. Clawing your way through. Almost to the top. Bang. Another shaft bites the dust.

Cause

U-JOINTS AND AXLE SHAFT YOKE EARS AREN'T ENGINEERED TO HANDLE HARD- CORE OFF ROAD ABUSE

  • Axle shaft yoke ears are made thin and often break in extreme off road conditions
  • C-clips that hold the U-joint place can come off while under load, thereby causing failure
  • While heavy duty U-joints are available, yoke ears still limit the strength of the axle shaft assembly
  • Problems usually occur when under throttle in a turn, and are magnified by use of large wheels and tires, increased engine power, and high axle gear ratios

Solution

RCV Ultimate CV Axles

  • The constant velocity (CV) joint is designed to
    overcome the strength and binding issues associ-
    ated with a universal jointed front axle shaft.
  • Engine torque is spread over six bearings, rather than the two
    bearing cups of a U-joint. Thereby distributing force over a larger
    surface area and making the CV joint intrinsically stronger.
  • RCV Performance Ultimate CV Axles replace the weak axle shafts on your Jeep, and are
    the strongest Jeep axle shaft solution available on the market - providing strength that
    u-joints can't match.
Test results show RCV Ultimate CV Axles for Dana 44 to be twice as strong as Dana 44 OEM axle shafts. They're just as tough at a straight angle as they are at extreme angles - where U-jointed axles are at their weakest. An RCV equipped Dana 44 is effectively as strong as a Dana 60, without the extra weight or loss of ground clearance.
