I don't have any experience with anything but longfields...

But I know they can sure take some abuse.

I would just save up and go with longfields from the beginning.

Great company to do business with.. also before you buy call Budbuilt he may have some in stock... He sometimes can get them a little cheaper

Save up for Longs, nothing else compares. There are others out there, but if you are going to spend the money, you might as well spend just a little more and get the proven best.


As far as rear axles go, don't waste your money. They will put up with an incredible amount of abuse. I honestly don't think i could break one if i tried......

Longs and stock rear axles are the way to go. DP finally broke a rear at Mtn City but he is the king at breaking shafts.

That is true.... His truck is HEAVY exoed and carries lot of tools...

Ive not broken a rear yet...but i don't worry about it cause im so light

spares are cheap and its a fairly easy trail fix if you do break one 45 to 90min fix. 14mm a 10mm and a tire-iron and highlift

yea this truck is gonna be very light. flat belly skids sliders and alil bumper in the front. rear bumper is made into the flat bed. im gonna take the wood off and use expanded metal. maybe a hoop over the top and alil over the cab incase of a roll over but it will be chromo tube to save weight. i want to run 36 or 38 skinnies.

30 spline Longs with hub gears FTMFW!!!!

The hub gears are something around $70 more and you don't get the lifetime warranty without them. In my opinion, ~$700 is well worth never having to worry about breaking and if you do break, FREE REPLACEMENT. FOR LIFE!

And just order from Bobby. His shipping is on point and he is a stand up guy. When my old room mate ordered his Longs he called the shop and the receptionist gave him Bobby's cell. He called the cell and Bobby pulled over on the side of the trail, while on a wheeling trip with the wife, to take down the information to place the order. Customer service doesn't get any better than that.

As for the rear, I will be incredibly surprised if you break one. I have heard of it done but not often and typically on heavy rigs with larger tires (>=40").

What is his setup? Don't see the rears break much out here on right coast.


Keep it light with Longs and stock rears and beat the everliving fawk out of it without looking back. Mr. Green

DP is way heavy, carries lots of tools, 38"tsls on beadlocks running about 3psi and rides in 2wd more than almost any person you will see. Perfect candidate for a broken rear shaft i guess.

Damn, I guess that is the recipe. Narrow rear end chromos are almost half off right now through Marlin.
