From my expeirence the 14 bolt takes the cake. and as far as the 9" goes, unless u want to sink a grand or 2 into one, then you will have one relativly strong compared to a 14bolt
That doesn't make any sense... because I'm sure there is some dump truck axle you can buy for $10 used.

A 14 bolt is probably the strongest, cheapest, most available axle out there... but unless your running 39"+ tires is completely retarted... and then with 39's you have the same clearance as a pair of 44's on 36's.

biggest tire I'll run is a 37. dana 44's can hold up to them if some care is taken. my dana 30 was fine on 36's,

I'll take the clearance and higher risk of breakage over a dana 60 with the same size tire(this excludes high clearance 60's on the market, as some have more clearance than a dana 44)

Then again, Bigger axles need bigger tires to clear them...

Charo does have nice breasts....

I vote for the D70....since I have one. Smoother bottom than the 14 and wider range of gears than the D60. I found mine in an old Dodge RV.
