Welcome to Diamond Axles!
Welcome to Diamond Axles, your home for Rockcrawler designed axles!
Our friend Shane Yost's son has recently been diagnosed with cancer. Their family is in our thoughts and we wish them the best. If you'd like to know more please read Shane's post on Pirate4x4 and then learn how to help.
We've designed our housings to be stronger, more compact, and have the highest clearance possible, ensuring they will stand up to all kinds of off-road abuse. The exclusive Diamond Axle design features precision CNC laser cutting, forming, and machining. Let's break down these features.
First off, let's talk clearance. Our housings are cut and formed to wrap tightly around the ring gear and other case features. By doing this, we can achive an overall smaller package. This makes fitting the axle center into tight places much easier. Many other companies reshape the bottom while we trim the whole thing: bottom, top, and front.
What about fitting that new Diamond Axle onto your vehicle? The fabricated steel center section provides for a strong mounting point to easily attach components to your new axle. This allows you to mount steering stabilizers, hydraulic rams, link suspension mounts, and a number of other components to your axle without worrying about "bridging" over the case center. You are free to customize the setup and integrate the axle under your vehicle in whatever manner you wish.
By producing a rockcrawler based housing, we've insured that they will hold up to anything the off-road world can throw at them. Our 3rd member mounting flanges are a step up to 1/2" plate, and our "covers" are CNC formed from one piece of 1/4" steel. With the structural shape of the housing center, plus high quality welding and bracing, these axles will be the last ones you need to buy.
What sets Diamond Axle housings apart from alternatives? One feature is that these housing are fully welded inside and out! Shown here is the internal brace, fully welded to both the axle tube and center section cover!
