    Does anyone even make a birf elim kit anymore? Warn used to but quit making a long time ago. I know someone with the warn kit and spare shafts are gold to him they are so rare.

    Just go with the Longs, Chromo ones.

    I would go with the Longfields too, I never heard anything good about the eliminator kit and if you break something it is WAY easier to find a spare birf to get home rather then spare eliminator parts..

    not so anymore. yukon gear makes the kit now and you can get them from randy's ring and pinion. it is a good set up. albeit comarable in price. :grinpimp:

    LONGS....


    30 spline super set, and you are done. Have seen 38.5"s hopping on these and nothing....



    Good luck!

    Longfields....no question....I've beaten mine mercilessly and haven't had an issue....

    believe there is a special going right now on both the 27-spline and the 30-spline kits....

    IMO, the 27-spline setup is plenty unless you are in competition mode on the trails, eases interchangability with stock inners/birfs too....
