It makes some pretty good points about the dana 20 that I currently have and I also have 1 piece axles already installed. The downfall is I would have to keep running spacers which is not really a big deal I guess. What do yall think? Dana 20 or Dana 44?

The cj amc 20 struggles because of the weak housing and weak 2 piece shafts
The ring and pinion is much larger and the shafts are the same strength at the splines
I would throw a simple truss on it, one piece shafts and run it
That is as long as you don't plan on ever running gears deeper than 4.88


I'm probably one of the only people to swap an amc 20 INTO a jeep haha
