I disagree. This is the first I have ever heard of anyone saying a D44 is stronger than a Yota axle.

ive owned both and if you arent running a HP diff for the toy the 44 diff is stronger the axles are about a toss till you go cromy so are we asking factory or built to the nuts cus at this point might as well move to a 60 and not play that game..

ed-zachary. A 44 is no better than a toy. They are equally crappy and one should just go straight to a 60.

Confused? I said a D44 is a waste of money as is a Toyota axle when SASing.


If you are referring to me having LT prior to my SAS as a waste of money it wasn't bc I got every dime that I spent back when I got rid of it


And I did lt when I was living in an apt and working out of a 1 stall storage unit with no power except the opener, lol so a SAC at that time was out of the question.

on no i was confused you basicaly just agreed with me.. i thought you said one should not just go to a dana60 so i was like what if the weaker options suck then LT first?? i was being a smart ass. but yeah im with you if youre going to build it to be big then Dana 60 right off the batt but if some one was not ever going go above 35's then built 44 or toy axle would be fine..
