d44 front with Toy outers???

Has anyone done this? After a lot of experience watching both in acton, I definately feel that the d44 has the stronger r&p and housing but given aftermarket options, the Toy has the stronger joint. I know it used to be the other way around, but I guess that's what 300m and chromo does for ya! :)

Anyway, if someone hasn't done it yet, is it feasable? Welding the Toy knuckles into the d44 tubes doesn't seem like it would be a big deal at all.

I think you'd be money ahead to use a front housing from a 40 or 60 series landcruiser. The r&p is stronger than a d44, and importantly if your going cheap the carrier is stronger so an aussie locker will not deflect and blow it up. I think the idea of toy outers on a 44 is interesting, but I don't see it becoming popular as the toy diffs are a much more user friendly design. And cheap. I think I heard rumors of a longfield for the rubicon 44 front. I'm not sure if thats accurate, but if so I think that would make a fairly stout axle for a smaller tired rig.

I say build one and we'll see how it works!!
