Default D44 axles

Just wanted to get folks opinions!!! For the people that were braking stock axles in a 44 and went to chrome alloy axles.....was it worth it or did you wish you would have gone to a d60?

Just a seeing what yall thought.

I have just went to the 44 with Alloy shafts , the reason i did was one of the Sundowners who was breaking shafts in a 44 in a 450 HP bronco switched to alloy and CTM joints has not broke one yet . Thats what sold me .

i plan on putting alloy shafts in my 44s just for the extra security.

that and i do tend to get a little stupid.

oh yea, didn't want 60s cause i will only see 37in tires at most so well built 44s front and rear should be plenty enough.

On my budget with a selectable locker in there, a 44 seems the most reasonable, but if I do get one, I will eventually get chromo shafts

mike, i've been thinkin...prolly best for you to go 60 since you wanna run 39.5's...or you will be in the same boat as christian is right now, where everytime you get traction, you will probably hear *snap snap*

if you were plannin to run 37's i'd say 44 all the way, but you want bigger, or at least thats waht i think you want.[/hijack]

i have stock shafts in my front dana 44 right now, and have had no problems with 36" TSL's locked fr, but I do plan on going alloy sometime soon. I don't really plan on gearing any deeper than 4.88's (4.10s right now) in the dana 44, because when the time comes, im gonna build custom 9" axles front and rear.
