Default D44 strength/axle upgrade

So goes the snowball affect....
Ordered new gears for my rear D44 NT on my CJ as the current ones were missing about 80% of the teeth on my ring gear.
Gears will be here tomorrow, so I started pulling everything tonight. Both axles have shifted splines. So....my question.... who makes/sells good axles for these, and is it worth it? Jeep is street driven quite a bit and hits the sand drags as often as I can.
Will better axle shafts live up to some street abuse?

I got cromolies for my front 44 and was able to get them on the rocks without breaking, not sure who makes them but alloys are always worth it if you are damaging OEM. helps to know what you are running though.

I've had excellent luck with Mosers.

Ironically, I redid my D30 front with all chromoly stuff this winter. My combo is...
427 SBC with a mixed breed NOS Cheater kit and an NX/HVH plate system
th350/5,000 stall
D300 t-case
D44 with 4.88 gears
D30 with 4.56 gears
No rock climbing/etc at all with this. It is strictly on the pavement or the sand.

I'm going to call Moser today, as well as DTS. Just wondering how much abuse this rearend will handle if I do this.
