I run the Moser shafts in my D44. Its in the front of an 89 Ranger, with 35's and a detroit. No problems yet, 297x joints, and a couple of a hundered dollars less than Warn. I have no complaints

When I ran a 44 I broke three of the warn shafts...but they were deffinelty stronger than the stock shafts. With the warns the axle usually stayed together when the u-joint grenaded...But I was running 38's with a 4spd and 460.

I have been running the Warn axles in my 78 Bronco with a 460, 36's, 4.56, and a locker for 3 years with good luck. I have busted a few X297 joints but the ears on the axles survived.
