Default axle selection

so im starting a new buggy build and need some advice on what axles to run, i have it down to 3 choices.
#1 toy minitruck with longfields. i've heard alot of good about these
#2 fj-80 with longfields. i know nothing about the fj axles
#3 d-44 with rcv's.
how do they compare strength wise????
pro's and cons of each??
I'm leaning tords the mini truck axles for strength to weight ratio.
buggy will be around 280hp with 35's auto trans and atempting under 2500lbs
