Try Maxles.com. They build axles to your specs. They do both 44's and 60's. They are working on a 35 spline front 44. They already have the rear. I have seen these axles take a beating and just keep working. Check the site. E-mail them for prices.

They might be a good company, but damn, they need some work on their site <IMG SRC="smilies/mad.gif" border="0">

I click on the Maxles.com logo, and I get a big pic of Mt. Rushmore <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">

Clicking the pics, just shows you the same sized pic. No info. Nothing.

Clicking on links sends you to some domain registration crap <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0">. Come awn...
That site is utterly useless.

I would think the intent of a business' website would be to tell people about what products they have to offer, a description of the products, vehicle applications, contact info, pricing, etc. But there was nothing!!!! Arrrggggghhhhh

They just had their site crash. They are in the process of getting it going again. Just e-mail them for prices. As far as apps go, they will build to suit.

sunray in weatherford tx can do it. from what i understand they (tom elliston) was the first to build these axles. he does very good work and is a good guy. if i only had his # with me.

oh yeah he can do alot of add on's while he's at it. high clearance housing, high steer, tie rod behind the axle, yoke's with u-bolts on the axle shafts instead of standard axle yokes, hydro assist, etc. i believe there are some people on this board running his axles but i'm not sure. if i can find his # i'll post it. if not you can always call info.

The only problem with dynatrac is that they take forever to get your axle finished. It took them 7 weeks to change a pinion angle on my d44. I called every other day for 4 weeks and kept getting different answers from the same guy. I've talked to lots of people that have had the same if not worse results. I believe ramstein had to wait a long time for his d60 front on his dodge. I would go with Boyce or one of the before mentioned dealers. Dynatrac ain't worth the wait.

i have dyna tracs front and rear and can say they dont keep their promisses . i was told 6-8 weeks for delivery and it took 15 weeks
and was told different storries by the same person too . seems they they tell the customer what they want to hear and once your off the phone that's the end of customer service ..
after installing my axles , i went to remove the pinion flanges to send off to high angle for modifications .when i took the front flange off i discovered that the pinion seal was mangled it would surely have leaked , now i am kind of pissed after waiting for axles now this . i go to take the rear flange off and WTF the rear was FAWKED up too
it makes you think what else did they screw up . i promptly called dyna trac and they sent out new seals , they said that sometimes that stuff happens . what about the poor guy that misses a bad pinion seal and fries his pinion bearing , he's the one to eat shipping and the time to dissassemble it and then wait somemore ..
my axles other than the broken promisses from dyna trac on delivery and two poorly installed pinion seals have held up great .
i will not buy from then in the future if there is another company that can do the work for a competitive price .
overall i like my axles but give dyna-trac a very poor grade for customer service . i say screw those guys and find a company that cares for your business ..
