hardened or 1 ton CV joints

I'm down to the last bits on the D90 that worry me for rock crawling - the front CVs.
I've been hoping that Keith would begin to offer the upgraded units again, but I see by checking his website that he is still looking for a supplier.
I also see that ECR offers the D110 one ton upgrade but it appears to require a substantial number of new parts in addition to the CVs and they only sell with an installation. Since I live on the opposite side of the country that isn't a very good solution.
Does anyone have a reasonable alternative? Cryogenically treating stock cvs, maybe?

Keith is already in possesion of prototypes for testing from his new manufacturer. Be a little patient and buy his, they are plug and play.

I bought a set from CV Unlimited in South Carolina... They are bigger than GBR and 4340 CM, Heat treated and Cryo'd... They have been great, and I play on a lot of rocks.

Thanks for the news that Keith is getting closer to offering them again.
I sent him an email.
