Axleboy Move-In Special (TJ & JK)

Remember what it was like to hop in your new Jeep and roll down the highway at 65-70 mph? Do you miss that feeling?  Would you like to recover that lost power?

Teaming Up With Yukon Gear & Axle

Axleboy is teaming up with Yukon Gear and Axle, today through the end of March 2017, to bring you a move-in special that will do exactly that for your JK, your TJ or both:

  • Recover Lost Power
  • Improve Fuel Mileage
  • Deliver Better Towing Capacity
  • Lower Your Crawl Ratio
  • Increase Engine Efficiency

What’s the Deal?

Starting at $1850*, Axleboy will regear both front and rear axles of your 1997-2017 Jeep Wrangler with premium Yukon gears, 4.10 (TJ only), 4.56 or 4.88.  This special includes:

  • Front and Rear Yukon Gear and Axle ring and pinions with master install kits
  • LubeLocker gaskets for both front and read differentials
  • 80/90 Break-in Oil
  • Gear-lube service in 500 miles with synthetic fluids
  • Axleboy’s 12 month/12,000 mile warranty

Thinking about stepping up your ratio to a 5.13? We’ve worked out  a special price for that too, starting at just $1950*.

What Are You Waiting For? Get Your Power Back!

Don’t wait too long, because this special is only going to run through 3/31/2017.  Call Axleboy today at 636-939-5337 to get answers to your questions and schedule service.

*Jeeps that currently have a 3.21 gear ratio will require an additional $101 to upgrade the carrier.  While the differential is apart, we highly recommend replacing axle bearings and seals.  We also recommend re-calibrating your speedometer and setting shift points soon after installing new gears.

Jeep Regear Special

Jeep Re-gear Special

What’s the worst thing about lifting your Jeep and setting it up with bigger tires?  Ask any veteran Jeeper who uses their rig as both a daily driver and weekend warrior and it won’t take long to uncover the frustration of losing 6th (and sometimes 5th) gear.

Some folks will just go with the flow and chalk up the loss of highway speed as part of the exchange for better off-road handling.  After all, you can’t have the best of both worlds… right?

We beg to differ!  You CAN have an awesome off-road Jeep AND a daily commuter that performs well on the highway.  The solution is finding the right gear ratio for your Jeep needs.

Axleboy is here to help give meaning back to 6th gear… without breaking the bank.  Right now, save over $300 off the cost of installing your choice of 4.56, 4.88 or 5.13 gear ratio in your JK.  Prices start as low as $1795 per Jeep* so what are you waiting for?

Check out this awesome offer and lock in the opportunity to:

  • Improve your gas mileage
  • Recover lost power
  • Get better towing power
  • Lower your crawl ratio
  • Enhance engine efficiency
  • Improve Jeep performance

 

*This offer applies to Rubicon and non-Rubicon Jeeps (2007-2015 JK) only and includes: Yukon ring and pinion, install kits, and LubeLocker gaskets installed on both axles.  Some Jeeps may require additional parts or service prior to or during regear.  This offer carries a 90-day warranty.  Jeeps with factory 3.21 gear ratio will incur an additional cost of $225.  Speedometer recalibration available for an additional $184.98.  This limited-time offer cannot be combined with any other coupons, discounts or other specials- including gift certificates, Jeep club and Military discounts.  Offer ends 4-30-15.
Lifted Jeep

Is a Bigger Jeep Better?

Stock to StudWhen you are trying to decide if a bigger Jeep is really better for you, you are likely to get suggestions and advice from friends, family and other Jeepers.  These are great sources to get the gears turning and once you’ve got a general idea of what you want, come out to Axleboy and talk Jeep.  Our experts are glad to discuss the pros, cons of any project and put together an accurate estimate to turn your dream Jeep into reality.

 

Quite frankly, bigger tires go over bigger rocks.  Bigger engines deliver more power to climb, crawl and roll.  And if you’ve ever been stuck in a ditch, you know just how valuable a good sized winch can be.

Like most things in life, there is a certain amount of trade-off when deciding how you want your jeep to look and ride.  Incidentally, those bigger tires and a bigger engine also create more drag and suck down more gas than similar stock Jeeps…but you didn’t buy a Jeep based on fuel economy.

Ultimately, when the time comes and you find yourself debating whether or not to go big, there’s just one question that could help you reach a definitive conclusion: “How do you see yourself using this vehicle in the future?”

Keep it Stock

Perhaps you’re just looking for something to make you look good on the pavement.  Stock Jeeps generally look good right off the lot and there are several ways to enhance that natural look while customizing it to your personal taste.

The guys at Axleboy can add floodlights, tail-light grills or convert your Jeep to a soft-top.  These are all great ways to customize your ride without going overboard on the budget or losing that classic Jeep look.

Add A Little Lift

If there is any possibility of leaving the pavement then we suggest considering at least a 2-4” lift kit and tires with a thicker wall.  The TeraFlex 2” Budget Boost lift kit is one of the most popular lifts for light off-road activity and we often pair it with a 31×10.50 tire.

This gives your vehicle just a little more ground clearance and enough durability that you won’t have to worry about puncturing the tires when you roll over small rocks and branches.

Wilderness Warrior

If you are a wilderness warrior, spending more time off-road than on the pavement, then bigger is definitely the way to go.  The Axleboy experts know that durable tires, high quality suspension, a winch, tire carrier and custom gears are more than accessories.  They are necessities that you rely on every time you head into the great outdoors.

Whether your style is stock, off-road adventurer or somewhere in between, Axleboy has the parts, the professionals and the experience to make your SUV dreams come true.

When you are ready to customize your Jeep, stop by or call Axleboy at: (636) 939-JEEP and get the job done right.
