    Drive flanges or one piece flanged axles?

    Both Dutchman and Moser can make these. The Moser's are 1541H and are machined to the spline major the entire length. Dutchman has more choices with 1541H, 4130 and 4340. The limiting factor is the bore of the spindle. The Moser flanged floaters have a feature I don't like. The back of the flange is cupped on both Dutchman and Moser axles. That recessed machining on the Moser versions intersects about a third of the flange bolt holes no doubt costing some strength on the fasteners.

    These are the Dutchman 4130 shafts going into my 3B:

    Man, those are sweet. I'd have those on the coffee table for about a week before I put them in.

    Thanks for the replies!
    Looking to duplicate a set of double spline, snap ring end axles that came with a Warn FF kit for an early CJ5. I suppose one of the two recommended may have made them for Warn possibly. Will be contacting them both.
