No Dana axles, no huge lift and tires, no iron block engines.

Couple questions: No Dana axles, why? D44's aren't that expensive and parts are cheap and easy to come by? With 35's either axles stock will live just fine and with chromo shafts in either a D44 or a Toy 8" isn't the generally excepted tire max the same anyway = 38's ?

So is it the weight factor? Do the Toy axles just swap in easier?
