someone got their panties in a wad.It's not a cheap mod,It's call using what you have access to and if it breaks just upgrade.To me the only thing that is most important is the steering and suspension.

No, you've completely missed the point, zuki-boy. If you ADVISE OTHER PEOPLE it's okay when it's clearly not, you're being naive at the best, possible a jerk at the worst.

Then folks like you get upset and blame the messenger with the truth. I've wheeled with lots of folks, talked to more, and researched axles heavily -- something a zuki rider probably hasn't done.

Like it or not, 30's are weak, 44's are weak with anything above 35's, and that's all there is to it. There's no basis for advising anyone about anything else.

Like YOU have anything to say driving a Zuk on Dana 44's -- what's your truck weigh, boyo, like 30 pounds?

Take the question to pirate4x4. If they aren't experts I don't know who is. See what they say.

And in that post, as I recall, I said we knew the risks or that it was weak or whatever. So you got your point acknowledged, even while I was pulling your chain...

Unless he's reinforced it and put stronger shafts in it, yes. No margin for extra stress basically. Apparently you said he's already broken it? Does it make the point or not?

But, if you're going to be stubborn and say that green is blue, then fine. There'll be no convincing you with reason.

actually homeslice I eat **** and breath 4x4's It's my bread and butter It's what i do.
I don't ever claim I know it all as you do.You have to realized not everyone driving habits are the same as the terrain.Not everyone can just go out find a set 60's that easy.I say if the dude want to run a dana 44 let him,maybe it's not the strongest.Also building a 44 is cheaper that building a 60.my samurai weights between 2500-3000.I have broken yokes,u-joint's and even colapsed axle housing by doing stupid ****.To me this thread is a waste of space and time just give the guy a good unbiased anwser.

You say it's not the strongest -- but others here say its fine. If you weren't such a co-dependent fool, I'd waste more time on you. But you've already come in here with less than a dozen posts and acted like Rambo on amphetamines.

I WAS giving an unbiased answer, in case you didn't notice. Apparently in your haste to jump on me, you didn't actually read everything I posted. About par for guys like you. I give you about 2 weeks before you're banned.

Ah, so you've broken all kinds of stuff at 3000 pounds with 38.5's on 44's. Makes my point perfectly. Stupid stuff happens two ways: on purpose and by mistake. You've proven my point, thank you.

Ta-ta! Have a nice day, zuk-boy!

P.S: If you take the first 5 words of your post and ignore the rest, it accurately describes your behavior in this topic...

Never met them. Bet they don't run 38.5's on unmodified Dana 44's though...

from what i have heard the stock IFS in our trucks dont like anything over 33s..... iv been locked up front with 33s, 35s, and now my current 37s.. iv yet to break anything.. the only reason i have the D44 in the garage is because my truck is not big enuff to me.. i want another 4-6" cant go bigger with off the shelf parts..

now to me breakage happins when too much is asked for the application, and how the driver uses the skinny pedal. 1 of the local parks (haspin acres)my truck has seen 97% of it.. granted on about 10% is rocks.. but then again i acount that my lack of breaking things is my driving style, smooth and easy, kinda like a sunday drive.. just out to have a good time. if i break somthing then so be it.. it can be fixed and upgraded its part of our sport.


in my opinion wheel what ya got.... 90% of breakage is drivers not knowing the limits of their equipment or usin way too much of the skinny

OR: as I said, things get out of control for unforseen reasons. THAT'S why you build margin in -- you can't control everything.

But again (for like the 20th time, lol): you can DECIDE to take the risk, but nobody should come on here and say there IS no risk. That's the point I was making that so many folks seemed to have COMPLETELY missed.

Guys another part we haven't really even touched on is where he mentioned wanting to use an engine with high output (350 hp and 350 tq. if I remember right). How many people here have engines with that sort of output?

If you're going to build a 44 to the hilt like Jey did, chromo shafts, CMT u-joints... basically bulletproof, it will probably stand up to large tires and tough wheeling like Jey's axle. But double the amount of power that you're putting through the axle, and I would not be positive in the power of a D44.

I'm certainly not the be-all and end-all in 4wd drivetrain component knowlege, but I have done a fair amount of reading and my advice would be to be prepared to spend alot of money on that axle, whether it be to buy a strong, expensive axle (military, d60) or to buy a smaller axle and get all the expensive, strongest components you can find. Nothing's a sure shot here, but all the reading I have done says a stock D44 would not well withstand a powerful engine and large tires like that.

Obviously you haven't read my CarDomain page much either. You really are very badly informed, even when information is right in front of you. You just keep making my point again and again, thanks!

Still misinformed. I have a D44 that is going under my Ranger, just on 35's and with full knowledge of the limitations.

See how little you know about what goes on over here? You just go here and you think you know everybody and everything? What a maroon, as Bugs used to say...
