Well that axle the the one pieces came from blew up because somebody did a HORIBLE job at Lincoln locking it and there was shit floating around in it plus the pinion angle was way to high and it overheated and took a shit going down the road so no not because it is junk and that guy went to a 44 only because it is easier to find a 44 with 373 gears then a nt 20 with 373s
The reason there is probably so many broke axles is because of careless/stupid drivers
I'm going of facts and experience as well, it may not be all my experience but experience all the same
As far as weldingthe tubes and a truss on the 20 if u don't know how to weld find a friend that can and make your own truss fukc all this buying after market parts it's alot cheaper
Learn some fab skills
And yes I know of 2 jeeps that break front d44 u joints more then whenthey ran the d30 up front
