Axle Shafts

Does anyone know of a source where you can still buy closed knuckle dana 44 axle shafts? I almost have my J4000 together and I am worried that with 35's and dual transfer cases I am going to break shafts on a regular basis and would like some spares to throw in the back for trail spares. I have a built open knuckle front axle I had in my Willys Wagon but waiting on the new shop to be built before it gets swapped in so just going to try to get the closed knuckle through this summer.

Bj's offroad sells Dutchman shafts for a discounted IFSJA member rate.

You can also order from Dutchman directly.

Just tell them what you need them for.

Bj's only has shafts for open knuckle axles as far as I could find.

Your not gonna need the whole shaft other than the convenience if you twist one off. Where they break is right at the end of stub shaft, basically twisting off the splines by the lockout. I just carry a stub, if ya got the tools to change it in the field a u-joint isn't hard to deal with, especially the closed knuckle as they are never rusty, they fit either side. How many ya need, I got plenty of spares.

Are the stubs the same as an open knuckle axle? If they are I have multiple spares if not as soon as I get this all together I will be getting in contact. I make decent power with low gears and 35" tires so even with an open knuckle front I break a couple joints a year and a short side shaft every couple years. Just trying to be prepared.
