RCV product reviewed: Ultimate CV Axles for IFS - CVJIFS-TOY1 Installed on: 2004 Toyota Tacoma
I have a 2004 Toyota Tacoma on one ton axles and a supercharged V6, a friend of mine bought RCVs after breaking an inner and outer shaft in the same trip. After seeing how well they hold up to his abuse I bought a set for my Toyota. All I can say is BEEF, these CVs are huge. Amazing machine work and strength. Very good looking product, I feel so much better about not having to worry about a clip on a u joint coming out or binding (stops are set at 45* of course). Worth every penny.

RCV product reviewed: Ultimate CV Axles for Straight Axles - CVJ44-JK Installed on: 2008 Jeep Wrangler JK
After tearing up 3 sets of stock axles on my 2008 Jeep Wrangler JK w/ a 2 inch lift and 33" tires, I tried Superior Chromoly's w/ a 4 inch lift and 35" tires since I was assured that these were "indestructible". I suppose the sales person figured thought "how much damage can a chick do?". After tearing up 3 sets of those, I went to a 6 inch lift w/ 37" tires and KNEW I needed axles that were truly indestructible so I went with the RCV's and have NEVER had a problem with these axles.
There is NO DOUBT in my mind that RCV's are indeed "the strongest axles on the planet", trust me, THIS chick drives her Jeep HARD. And I must add, the guys at RCV have the best customer service I've ever had.

RCV product reviewed: Ultimate CV Axles for Straight Axles - CVJ44 Installed on: 2003 Jeep TJ (Dynatrac axle housings)
A few years ago I learned of RCV, but after holding them in Moab during EJS 2011, I opted for them.
Now I live and wheel in Fairbanks, Alaska, which gets cold. These shafts, boots and CVs held up very well in the subarctic....known for eating CV boots and just about anything metal when pushed in the cold. They survived "fall" wheeling with freezing river crossings, deep snow and daily driving at -50 (F or C doesn't matter that cold).
There is a huge advantage to these in the cold as the crow hop is gone, making more smooth operation...meaning less carnage in front ends.
These are awesome.

RCV product reviewed: Ultimate CV Axles for Straight Axles - CVJ44-JK Installed on: Jeep JK
I installed Ultimate CV Axles for Dana 44. At first sight these shafts are very impressive, very well made and clearly well designed. The splines are perfect and everything fits together with an engineered feel. The install is very simple and takes around 60 minutes for both sides. They come complete with new bearing bolts and a tool to help install the boots. You'll like these shafts as these are very smooth, the jumpy/binding feel at full lock is no longer there. Mine are holding up great to some abuse. You’ll probably only need to grease them every 6 months or so. I give them a couple of pumps of moly grease every time I lube everything else, which is every couple of months. The grease points are on the end of the outer shafts, so very easy to get to. You just need an adapter for your grease gun, which you can pick up at any auto parts store.
