    Mip X-duty axles Question

    So I bit the bullet and purchased these today after breaking my 2nd axle. Taking off the old axles there is a set screw and pin that locks the axles onto the diffs. The MIP's use the 2 small set screws only with no pin in the middle? Also I ended up using blue loctite instead of red. Should I change that to red? Other than that they seem near indestructible and add some stability to the truck.

    Use the blue! Just be sure to let it sit for like 12 hours to cure. You have made a great investment

    Yes there is 2 ser screws for each flat part coming out of the differential. And yes, blue is perfect. Thats what most of us use

    I knew I had 1 more question Instructions say to grease the pivot points? I usually spray the whole truck with silicone spray. Is that cool or do those pivot points really need grease?

    the x-duties are awesome..you will love them. but be careful.i do use the blue loctite and on a very small occasion, they will start to back you. ive never had one fully fall out (knock on wood)!!

    I dont spray them or put grease on them. doesnt really matter. i clean them constantly and clean the old loctite off and put new on.

    I used RED loctite on the set screws that hole the cross pins in, but at the diff side I didn't even both using the two set screws they give you... personally, that just looks like a problem waiting to happen... I ordered a set of Revo drive shaft pins and used them instead with some BLUE loctite on the threads. Those pass all the way through the diff output, so no chance of backing out The Revo pins are a little long and stick out the other side a little, but there's no interference issues. If it bothers you, you can always Dremel a little off the end, or I know I've heard of some people using some other pins that were a little shorter, but I never could find a definite answer on what those where for or what the P/N was...
