I'm still not sold on the "8.8 is stronger" Bandwagon. I have sold over 30 JY D44s now, and have never had one with a bent axleshaft. I have sold about 10 exploder 8.8s, and have already had 3 bent axleshafts. That is not counting the 2-3 exploders I see with broken shafts every time I'm in the JY. I have stopped selling 8.8s just because I'm not sure if I will end up with one with a bent shaft. I have never come across an XJ D44 with a broken shat in the JY.
