I have a buddy that wants to do this on his Mini, however, I am having a very difficult time being a party to swapping a Birfield equipped axle INTO a truck.

I just threw my old front axle out after going through:

2 Stock Birfields
4 Mini Truck Birfields
1 Essentially Off Road Birfield
5 Newfields

I PROMISE I will not miss that axle.

I say go D44 of bigger and not screw with the Toyota axle.

What are the thoughts of the Mini Truck experts?

I'm going with a Toyota axle. Hopefully it'll work out fine..D44's can be had fairly cheap, so I can always change. I just want a SA!! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Off topic - but how did the EOR birf' last compared to the others?

same Same David.

I feel that they are worth the $100 they charge for them relative to the Newfield being $500 for a set!

They worked as well as the Newfields and better than Stock Stuff.

BTW, out of all the 'fields I have broken, I have only broken 1 inner cage only. The rest were grenaded.

Why waste time with the Toy? Just skip that step and go on to the D44.....
What size tires and what engine/tranny are you running....that can make a difference... <IMG SRC="smilies/blender.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/bender.gif" border="0">

I fully agree, why spend all of that time and effort to put bustfields INTO your rig? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Plus, a D44 joint is much cleaner, and (maybe) easier to fix on the trail. <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">

Note the (maybe) in that last statement, I'm not trying to start a debate...! <IMG SRC="smilies/laughing.gif" border="0">

Yeah, 44 joint swaps don't require towel racks like Birfield Parties do. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">
