Jeep Gladiator Axle Assemblies |Fusion Pro Series Fabricated 10" Front Axle Assembly
The Fusion Pro Fabricated 10" axle combines the latest and greatest in race proven axle technology and packages it into a bolt-in axle assembly that is ready for anything from daily driving to pro level racing. The axle includes the same High Pinion Gearworks Third Member design that crossed the finish line in 1st Place at King of the Hammers in 2016 and 2020.
The basics of what you need to know when comparing this axle to alternatives: LIGHTER, STRONGER, FASTER, MORE GROUND CLEARANCE.
FABRICATED 10" HOUSING - THIS IS ONE BAD A## HOUSING!
3.5" x 3/8" DOM Tube
Formed 1/4" plate center section made from high-strength, low alloy, structural steel
1/2" face plate made from high-strength, low alloy, structural steel, which is machined after welding to ensure a perfect fit with the third member.
LIGHTWEIGHT at approximately 70 lbs
Only 5/16" less ground clearance than a JT front D44 and 1/2" more than a D60
INCLUDED JT bracket kit made from 1/4" steel, laser cut, and CNC bent
FRONT AXLE FEATURES:
GEARWORKS HIGH PINION 10" THIRD MEMBER - THE SAME CASES YOU WILL SEE UNDER UNLIMITED CLASS ULTRA4s AND TROPHY TRUCKS
HIGH PINION: Where the magic happens. Ford 9" axles were designed for rear axle low pinion applications. Running a low pinion in the front means running on the weak side of the gears. In addition, the very low pinion position creates undesirable driveline angles that can create significant issues with longer travel suspension. This GEARWORKS case uses high pinion reverse cut 10" gears, making it the strongest high pinion front differential available, while providing for optimal driveline angles.
10" RING AND PINION: If you're going to make custom gears, why not make them larger?! In addition to a larger ring gear, it utilizes a larger 35 spline pinion vs. the standard 28 spline.
LOAD BOLT: The case includes a load bolt to prevent ring gear deflection (the most common cause of gear failure under load). Under load, if the ring gear starts to deflect, it hits the load bolt, thereby preventing a potential failure.
FUSION KINGPIN OUTER ASSEMBLIES - BECAUSE FRIENDS DON'T LET FRIENDS RUN BALL JOINTS
Fusion HD Kingpin Inner Cs, USA forged out of high-quality alloy steel
Fusion HD Kingpin Knuckles, cast in the USA. Knuckles are designed to use a race style fully machined steering arm and secured by 6 ARP studs
JT ABS: Included is an OE quality ABS kit to ensure your vehicle works as the manufacturer intended
BIG BRAKE KIT: A standard on Fusion axles. Massive dual piston calipers and 13.25" rotors, providing maximum stopping power for large tires and heavy rigs
Standard Yukon Hardcore Locking Hubs. Without a doubt, the strongest locking hubs available.
FUSION 2.5 TON STEERING - NO FUSION AXLE IS COMPLETE WITHOUT INDUSTRY LEADING STEERING
Backed by our NO BS lifetime warranty. Should you ever manage to bend the tie rod or a forging, send us a picture and we'll replace the affected part.
Massive 1-1/4" shank heat-treated forged ends
Anti-rotation bushings that limit tie rod roll, resulting in tighter steering, especially when used with hydro assist
1.75" diameter solid 7075 aluminum. 7075 is popular in off-road racing due to its "memory." If you hit the tie rod hard enough to make it flex, the bar will return to straight. The aluminum is CNC machined to exact tolerances. Just because you're not racing in King of the Hammers doesn't mean you can't run the same parts!
Wrench flats for easy installation
Lock washers to prevent jam nuts from loosening
Replaceable cartridge ends should one ever wear out
Optional Next Generation Rear 40 Spline Assembly.18 months of design, engineering and testing, resulted in the industries strongest 40 spline rear assembly. The design completed rigorous FEA testing and analysis. - Forged chromolyspindles, hubs, and axle shafts - Forged spindles have 4x more yield strengththan 35 spline spindles - Hubs with over 80,000 psi yield strength to match the spindles - Tone rings integrated into the hub - Forged 4340 chromoly 40 spline axle shafts that are 55% strongerthan 4340 35 spline axle shafts
