Well I think you might be able to handle it.. Im the only one that made a dana 30/35 last with my stroker and 35s. The only thing is that I believe that the larger tires are just going to load that much more torque on the axle shaft when wheeling and such. But give it a shot and see what happens.

dana 44 locking collar in the arb will be the first to go, something pinion related after that.

it will probably last you quite a while really.... I'm not trying to rip on you but given that you only really get out a couple-few times a year and not much if any is out of state.... you dont get too many undercuts and you wont see a situation that will break it very often so it might work out....

This is a PSA for everyone considering a 44/60 hybrid axle..... this is the perfect reason NOT to build one sorry scoots... couldnt help it!

actually i have a new tech question for the guru's. I need to re-position the calipers on my rear axle. The face towards the rear and i want them facing towards the front. I believe the rear disk setup thats on it is like that of a 8.8 ford disk setup, any one have any suggestions?

your tires will come in contact long before your brake calipers get anywhere near in the way of the shocks.... that is unless you have one of those new fangled banana shaped shocks that allow for super outboarding.

In the garage are Genrights high line tube fenders w/3" flare, strech rocker guards, rear strech guards, inner fender mounting kit, rear truss, 4 link brackets, a complete set of factory JK arms and some Johnny joints. Still need a few more basic parts but things are comming together
