Tom Wood's Custom Drive Shafts offers its Super-Flex universal joints in both 1310 and 1350 sizes to fit most popular driveshaft applications. The U-joints permit greater driveshaft angularity and are considerably stronger than conventional U-joints. The unique design of the offset trunions sets the mating yokes farther apart than conventional joints, which allows the Super-Flex U-joints 10 degrees more flexibility than can be obtained through use of typical high-angle components. When installed in standard driveshaft yokes, the Super-Flex U-joints permit up to 40 degrees of flex.

The new Dynatrac Stub-Hub conversion kit for Dana 60 axles offers a shorter hub profile than traditional hub designs. This creates over 1.5 inches of side-to-side axle hub clearance for navigating difficult obstacles that could cause hub damage. The Stub-Hub components are made in the USA and are completely bolt-on to most Dana 60 axles. The spindles are forged from chrome-moly steel, and the wheel hubs are made from nodular castings, making them strong enough to withstand the abuse of rockcrawling buggies and 4x4s. The Stub-Hub kit is available in common 8-on-6.5, 5-on-5.5, and 6-on-5.5 wheel-bolt patterns and uses common Timken bearings and seals. Kits are available with or without brake assembles.
