Where is the info that the XR front axle went from 7mm thickness to 10mm thickness? That’s thicker than aftermarket 44 “extreme duty” axles…

“Stock length LCA’s” 4.7 caster…..wth! I get the stock track bars…..only perfectionists with ocd would notice….wait…that’s me ☹ I guess the bean counters at Jeep don’t actually drive them. I replaced LCA’s when I built up my ‘21 (lift & 35’s), didn’t realize I would need to do that to my XR when it finally arrives.

So true about the suspension. Already going to lift mine. No flex.

Wow that’s surprising… assume you’re disconnected in the front too? I just took delivery of my XR last week, haven’t had a chance to hit Uwharrie yet. Below is a pic from a few years ago in my 2011 JKU w/ a TeraFlex 2.5” lift & 35’s. Hate to think it had more flex than my XR. Haha

I was disconnected. There isn’t much room to stuff the front tire with the giant front bump stops.

That’ll do it, appreciate the pic. I should be hitting Uwharrie in the next week or two to break in the XR. Haven’t been since selling that JKU 5-6 years ago.

I googled quite a bit and found no mention of that. Perhaps someone has a link...

It was confirmed by good source at Jeep it is same axle housing as JT Mohave. But you are correct, no documentation. 🤷‍♂️

Probably the worst thing about the XR imo. It’s as if they sacrificed flex to give it more lift. It’s hard to imagine how they even managed to both increase the height and decrease the flex at the same time.
Probably a lot to do with those ten-feet-long bump towers. I wonder what they were thinking going with that design, knowing it would decrease flex.

It’s shock extended length. IIRC, front 3.6XR extended shock length is only .75” longer than stock Rubi. Any extended bump stop over that amount takes directly from shock travel.

Easy enough fix though, swap out the shocks.

I see. Is there any official documentation for the Mojave front axles at least?
Of course. Jeep publishes an order guide for the JL/JT and everything is listed. It's been posted previously, all of the JL/JT axles available. The JT is available with:

DANA M210 FRONT AXLE (DJE)
DANA M210 WIDE FRONT AXLE (DJF)
DANA M220 REAR AXLE (DRE)
DANA M220 WIDE REAR AXLE (DRF)

The Mojave has a DJF front axle and DRF rear axle.

I still think it's BS that they do not offer the XR Package in a 2-door...
