Are you using a tent as a paint booth?

Just carry a 2wd stub shaft and a stock unit bearing, then you can always limp it home if needed without worrying about your wheel falling off. I have an extra 2wd outer if you want it.

I should be fine to wait on buying a spare set. Why would I need a spare unit bearing though?

When you say 30 spline shafts, I assume you mean inner and outer. If you run a 30 spline outer, you need a 30 spline unit bearing. If you used a 27 spline stub to get off the trail, you would want a unit bearing to match.

The g2 ones were the ones I was looking at. Rustys sells the ten factory ones but they don't specify the outer

I believe the only company using a 30 spline outer is Alloy USA.

Too bad you weren't getting axles when I had a group buy hookup. I might still be able to get a deal. Let me know what you'd like.

Made some good progress today. A huge thanks to Pat for coming out and helping a few times and doing some welding. Got the suspension swapped over to the new frame. Hopefully the snow will melt some tomorrow afternoon and I can get the spring perches and shock towers melted in.
