Chromoly ones are not for daily driving. Does not matter if they come from CV unlimited (who has them), Carl (JT Diffs) or Bobby Long. Any of those will not last in a DD application.

For DD application and oversize tires plus wheeling, factory Toyota is really the only option.

Think about why you own a land Cruiser before you throw parts at it that is not suited for your application. We sell all three kinds, but with proper edumecation so the customer knows what he should use.
Easier said than done, Christo, the proper edumecation, How ya doing ? Christo ?

Now I just about have a factory trained Toyota tech deprogrammed, wondering if you Rising Sun guys will allow Part III of his edumacation to be here ?

Dont ask Romer he has got it out for me, anyhoo, Jacket had to say "Backwoodsgoop" so just dropped by to say Hi to my favorite little Toyota forum,

Oh and If you care have got some info straight from Toyota on this , So

Anybody up for some Edumaction ? this is including you oh wise Christo

Interesting conversation, skim read the lengthy posts, and wanted to toss
in a theory, that from the factory, they might not assemble the bearings
with a packing of grease, so the semi fluid grease is used to allow faster
assembly and fast fill of a suitable lubricant, as this semi fluid will fill voids
in the bearings that a heavy grease will not.

In addition to that, the fluid type grease might keep the seals and wipers
"splash" lubed on a closed knuckle system.

As a side note, older heavy trucking trailers used wheel bearing grease,
and sometime in the 80s switched over to gear lube and a sight glass in
the hubs, they even make conversion kits to switch over from grease to
oil, all usually is needed is to replace the inner seal to hold the oil.

If heavy trucking can use oil instead, I see little trouble with a semi fluid
grease being an issue, I personally would prefer a lube that can flow and
keep the moving parts lubricated, instead of the crusty grease I have seen
that gets thick and hard and quits protecting the critical parts

Wild

Super cool, Wild Yes in some ways using a fluid is much easier than the conventional packing, or so I have noticed, there are other little perks about liquid lubrication aside from the fluid working is way into the voids that thicker grease wont,
Slightly less rolling resistance, better cold weather function, and drawing heat away from the bearing, but the overhaul advantage of fluid lube in the wheel hub is that it simply lasts longer,

And this is a Yes as well agree 100%

In addition to that, the fluid type grease might keep the seals and wipers
"splash" lubed on a closed knuckle system.

actually if your Suzuki solid axles are like all the rest of them and use a Felt wiper seal, this felt can absorb the fluid grease and be drawn into it and thru the "Capillary Action" pull the fluid thru the porous felt and coat the entire seal even if the level is un maintained,
Now I have not noticed a Fill plug on these Suzuki solid axles, like its larger Toyota Cousin, Is this the case ?
And Yes semi trucks , trailers, fluid wheel hubs, There is a slight difference in seal design for oil or fluid containment, One of the first things I noticed about The Toyota solid axle,

Thanks Wild, super cool post

They are doing just fine. The truck is at 282k, so I have around 16k on them so far. No clicks or any sign of weakness or wear. Ran Behind the Rocks at Moab a couple weeks ago, did pretty much every obstacle except High Dive and White Knuckle. Plenty of front locker action without a hitch.
