AXLES ARE THE LEGS OF YOUR 4X4. THEY WEAR THE SHOES AND lug tons of iron across trail and tar­mac alike. How­ever, over­bur­den these legs, and you risk them fold­ing like the knees of an overzeal­ous weightlifter. The ben­e­fits of up­grad­ing your stock axles aren’t limited to safely run­ning larger tires and wheels. The af­ter­mar­ket is teem­ing with bombproof rac­ing axles for high speed and heavy horse­power, fac­tory re­place­ment axles that slide eas­ily be­neath your rig with­out com­pro­mis­ing things like steer­ing ge­om­e­try, and axles en­gi­neered for im­proved gear re­duc­tion and ground clear­ance. The task is yours to de­ter­mine which com­bi­na­tion of weight, brawn, and gear­ing best suits your on- and off-road needs. To make that de­ci­sion sim­pler, we’ve gath­ered 19 axles from fully cus­tom to fac­tory re­place­ment for you to pe­ruse.
