I gots 'em front and rear in my YJ (Waggy D44s) and absolutely no complaints. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Well, there is the small matter of the price, but other'n that, no complaints.

I ran with some guys that had OX and the did great. I've got ARB's now, but I might consider the OX sometime in the near future.

Anyone hear about any mechanical problems with 'em yet? <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0"> I know the ARB's are infamous for breaking airlines <IMG SRC="smilies/mad.gif" border="0">

If you have a rear D44 one thing to check out on the Ox would be the diff cover clearance. There's not much room back there, and the Ox cover is a bit bigger than stock. I believe the D44 Ox is just out, or has been out for a short time, so I really don't know if this is an issue, but thought I'd give a heads up about it.

I just ordered an OX for the rear 44. According to Dave at DTD the cover is the same depth as stock. I dunno, doesn't sounds right to me, but I'll check it out when it gets here. Oh yeah, it's the Super 44 kit with 33 spline shafts. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Yeah, the 44 Ox cover is only a little deeper (really just the thickness of the cover--probably about 1/3rd of an inch) because it's pointed unlike the D30 version which was kinda squared off (the early D30 ones would bang on the track bar in an unlifted TJ, but I think they fixed that now).

If you have any lift at all, I wouldn't worry about it. Hell, even if you're unlifted, I wouldn't worry about it. I doubt they (OX Trax) would make the same mistake of not having sufficient clearance for (what will probably be) the most popular stock application for their product twice in a row...

The only problem I had ever heard of the diff hitting the tank skid was if the TJ was stock and you were using the tomken skid. I guess there skid has a part on it that really serves no other purpose than to hit your diff and you can cut it off. <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0">

If you have the $$$ then screw the detroit and go for the OX for sure.

When I still had my Tomkin, my TJ had a 4" suspension lift and I was still hitting the diff cover on the skid - had to notch the heck outta the skid. As your suspension cycles and the tires stuff - the axle gets pushed back a bit. I shaved quite a bit off the cover before I realized what was happening.

Got the Kilby now and a bit more lift - so no worries.
