the whole point was, I'm opening the thing up already, for gears and a locker. i didn't want your fawkin opinion, just wanted to know if the things were available.

i guess now i know how to sound smart around here.... just answer "D60" to every fawkin question. get your head out of your arse.</STRONG>
I couldn't agree more. I am one of the fawkers with 60's but it is a trail only rig and when I upgraded I decided to upgrade but a 30 spline axle will take some abuse so a 33 should be great.

I have the same parts to go into my YJ right now. 60 front and 14 bolt rear. I currently have a 44 front 9" rear with 38.5's. I run a 4.0/999/300 and have been sorta concerned with the front axles. I havent broken and YET but I want to be able to get a little throttle happy if I want and not worry. So I am contemplating just waiting for the 44 to hatch and buy bigger axles.

Personally I'd rather replace a cheap u-joing every couple of months than waste my $$$ on a D60
that's all fine and dandy but every time i broke a 297 in my old d44 it took out the ears of the shafts so how much $$$ are you spending then? this is with 35" swampers. the d44 does have it's place but i was breaking hubs and u-joints and i got tired of it. i went 60 and havn't broken sinceand i am running 38.5's now. if you plan on playing hard then might as well go big cause your gonna need it.

Well considering that $800 for the Super 44 includes a Detroit Locker or OX locker that's half the cost of the kit right there. Plus like in my case getting the facotry 44 why not build it up? Is it going to hurt anything but my wallet? Probably not! Is the axle going be weaker? Probably not! In your case with what you plan on running go 60's you'll need em. Question... how much is it going to cost you to build up your 60's? (Figuring gears, locker, etc...) I'm thinking more than $800 when it's said and done and I'm figuring a junkyard axle. Get your 60 and be happy. Let him get the Super 44 if that's what he wants and will make him happy.

So what parts are breaking in the 44s????? Gears? Axles? Most 60s out there only have 30 spline shafts,........ the same as most 44s. <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">
If you're breaking gears or need a full floater then by all means go 60.

So far you have proven yourself to be the biggest "MORON" on this post.
There is a big difference between a built 44, and a stock 60. Who runs a stock 60 in there rig? Full width, shitty gearing, 8 lug, no locker. By the time you set a 60 set up, especially a RC, with high steer, locker, gears, 5 lug if you want, or offset 8 lug 15" rims, 35 spline, narrowed, and so on, you will have just a few more dollars in it than a 44.

Why do you need 42's anyway, can't you keep your tires on the rocks, or have you even wheeled yet?

when you are talking front ends there IS a BIG difference between a built 44 and a stock 60. as far as i know all open knuckle dana60 fronts are 35 spline. it's the rears that are almost all 30spline. as for a rear i run a cab chasis dually 14bolt rear that is 62" wide so no narrowing. with 1.5" and a 10.5" ring gear plus a super hd housing i doubt anyone would question the strength difference. yes i had to narrow the front but i did it my self. infact i built both front dana60 rear 14 bolt both with detroit's and 4.56's for just alittle over $900! yes i got a good deal on the d60. 1 full days workth of work and i got the 60 but if you want to add $1000 to the $900 then still for 62" wide 1ton axles with gears and lockers $1900 is cheap. if you factor in what you can get for the stock axles and subtract that. anyway i'm not a d44 basher but it wasn't enough for me with 35's so before i went to 38.5's i swapped.

i snapped 2 front short side d44 shafts/ujionts with a 4.0 and 35 boggers. 1 time it was the u jiont and the ears went with it the other it was at the necked down part of the shaft. i put chromolly shafts in and stepped up to 37 at the same time and didnt break anything. i just swapped in a v8 though and d60 and 14bolt to go with it.

<STRONG>But once the 38.5's come off and the 42's go on i'll be selling those axle to some parking lot jeepers like yourself for way more than I even paid for them in the first place. </STRONG>
I find it pretty amusing that with all of these "parking lot" references you seem to love, the image under your name is one of you basically in a parking lot parked on a pebble. <IMG SRC="smilies/clown.gif" border="0">


IMO, this whole post has made you come off as a <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/clown.gif" border="0">...Just remember, that talking about what you're going to supposedly have in the future, does not make you an expert, and a guy that can rag on what other people want to do with their rigs. He wanted an opinion on a 44 kit. If you have nothing productive to add that might help him, then please do everyone a favor and shut the fu*k up, mmmkkkayyy <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0">. Jump right on that 60's bandwagon, Corky

Ok Keith, am I missing a few things here??? You said who runs a stock Dana 60? aaaahhh.. I dont see why not, I mean why do you need to upgrade from 35 spline factory front axle shafts? Also you said in order to build a Dana 60 up you must have "Hi-steer, locker, gears, offset 15" rims" aaaaaahhh??? hello! just because someone has a D60 means they must have to buy gears, lockers, hi-steer, o' and rims????? WOW! and someone running a Dana 44 obviously doesnt need any of these things, inter-fawkin-resting. Unless I missed something, YOUR 44 DOESNT COME WITH THIS STUFF EITHER SPANKY!!!! wow, I swear some people are sooooo stupid. Now who sounds like a Moron... Duuuhh?????

why not just run warns premium hubs w/ fuseable links? sounds good as long as their is a full case locker..this set up and some HD shafts would be much cheaper than a 60, especially if you have a 44 thats set up with hi-steer and all that other shit needed to make it move.

Yep there are tons of advantages to having a full width, 4.10, open, D60, running 16.5" rims, and a 8 lug pattern. Please tell me what the advantage is with getting your drag link beat up by rocks? Go back to your dirt road wheeling <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0">

Those fusible hubs destroy Detroit lockers - they say not to use the 2 together.
