rcv recommended a minimum of .030 over the shaft size so thats what I did

Well I think it is awesome you are running those RCVs, I wanted to so bad after destroying 6-8 sets of axle shafts on my D44. I asked but they didnt have a solution for me yet.

I know drive flanges are stronger but did you see the 300m hub gear I got?
suposed to make your locking hubs alot stronger
rcv boasts strong as a flange but I know it cant be

Koyn reminds me of Matt (99ranger4x4) with his heavy foot when wheeling. Even with the mild wheelin we have around here, he needs the strongest **** out there haha.

This RCV-44WARNGEAR is the ultimate upgrade for your Warn Locking Hub Kit (60165). If you want run lockouts but also want the strength of a slug this is the product for you! This completely 300M gear replaces stock hub gear for increased torsional strength. With easy installation and warrantied against breakage you can’t go wrong! If you are running our outers with a the Warn Locking Hub Kit (60165) we recommend this gear to minimize the possibility of failure. So protect your investment with the RCV-44WARNGEAR

Are your spring perches on your rear axle welded all the way around? Is there any concern that water will enter through the centering pin holes and sit inside the spring perch?
