The rubi 44 is still pretty much a Dana 30, only difference is the center section. Did hear they made some upgrades to it though.

As far as best axle I say a custom 9.5 with 80 outer's or just a fabed 80 housing and stock guts, but thats if you have crazy money. If not then a Dana 60 will do just fine. Rear could has a lot of good choices 14 bolt, Dana 60, Dana 70, and sterling 10.25.

Also Adams truck does very well on 33's, it has impressed me multiple times, don't always need 40's.

Hmm, didn't know that about the rubicon. Also Im sure his truck does awesome, definitely one of the cleanest 1st gen swaps out there.

OP, if you want to run 40" tires, even a d44 is a no go. Don't use anything smaller than a 1 ton axle. D60 for the front, more options for the rear like d60, d70, d80, and 14 bolt.

What's your budget for this build look like? Good advice in this thread...
I don't know anything about 2nd gens wheelbase but could you use a Toyota axel with longfield shafts and wheel spacers ? uhh its an idea? I know and wheel with several guys that run 38s and 39s on trussed Toyotas and they dont break . the sas on my 1st gen cost 4k

Dunno if they make 6" wheel spacers unless you like the dragster look......and like no turning.....
Though the toy axle with longs is tough. The custom width 9.5 with chromly 80 outers would be tits if staying toyota

Toyota axle on a 2nd gen? You won't make it out the driveway without breaking. Just use a D60. They are decently priced and you won't break hardly ever..

Or if you are going straight to coilovers, pre 1990, Kingpin Dana 60.


Otherwise you are bending around your elbow to scratch your ass.

in my opinion toyotas should be toyotas . I guess we don't have any real places to wheel our weak little Toyota axels in Montana maybe that's why they don't break ?

Go ahead use a toyota axle, see how long it lasts on a 2nd gen. It's your truck, enjoy wrenching on it! Toyota axle rocks on the mini trucks or suzuki, or even 1st gen's they do okay. Now if you run a LC 9.5" differential with custom housing; perfect, go for it! That is a toyota axle that will last.

Lol funny how people don't listen to those of us who actually have first hand personal experience with these things. It'll be one expensive lesson for him to learn though. Which will be funny.

While I personally don't have any first hand experience with the toyota axle.. I have seen them break, along with everything else... But there is COUNTLESS information that I have read, over and over for years about what axle is strong, and what isn't.

Too much custom BS to even consider Toyota based axles.


Set it and forget it.
