I don't know how strong they are but ford rangers and exploders are the only trucks with 5 on 4 1/2. I don't now how strong they are though.
Good luck

If you want to stay with the 5 on 4 1/2 pattern then your stuck with the D30.
I would not let my wheels dictate my axle selection. Sell your wheels and buy some cheap steel wheels and go to whatever axle you choose.
If you go to a D44 then you can choose between 5 on 5 1/2", Chevy 6 lug, or even 8 lug patterns.

I think a reverse cut Dana 30 is about the best you are gonna do, and that doesn't seem worth the effort.

I agree with Jeff, if you're gonna goto the trouble to do an axle swap, then swap the wheels too.

There's plenty of buyers for 5 on 4.5 wheels.

Dodges from 75 to 79 used a dana 44 with the 5 on 4 1/2 pattern. some people complain about the wheel bearings but I have had mine for a little over 6 years with no problems so far. Thats on a mud toy with a big block automatic and 35- 12.5-15s. I think the trick is to keep the bearings lubricated.

Especially when you can get new 767's with the new bolt pattern for $35 a piece. It's not like they're big ticket wheels ya got there <IMG SRC="smilies/laughing.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

Besides, even if ya found a tough axle with a 5x4.5 bolt pattern, you'd still be stuck running those cheesy hubs that are pretty weak.

You dont want to spend money for 2 new rims, but can spend money on dual 44's?? <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">

Warn Alloy inner and outers if you cant get another axle.

I have some 5 on 5 1/2" MRT Beadlocks that will be going on sale in a couple of weeks(8 lugs on the way). They would be perfest for your D44's <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

H8,

So, uh, what do you want for those beadlocks <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">?

BB,

And yeah, someone beat me to it, but seriously ...the AR767s are just cheap black wagon wheels. If your looking to drop coin on axles, THOSE wheels in particular shoul;d be the least of your concerns.

Good Luck,

Charly
