I was kicking around the idea the other day after looking at allpro's hybrid toyota , 44. I had a chevy 10 bolt with a cracked center section and took the tubes out of it ( they are the same as the 44) . I took a ifs rearend and cut it just iside of the welds near the diff . I cut the 10 bolt tubes down to the length I wanted the remachined the inner seal area back inside the tube and machined the outside down .125 for a slight press fit into the toyota housing . I made 2 pucks the same o.d. as the toyta carrier bearings w/ a 1.500 " i.d. and machined a puck for the axle tube itself. I lined them up and welded it it came out perfect and the tubes are way stronger than the toyota housing w/ dana inner knuckles and have less than 100 bucks in it. <IMG SRC="smilies/idea.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/idea.gif" border="0">

Seriosly. There need to be pix. I thought that a 10bolt shaft was no stronger than a toy shaft? What about resplining the shafts? How many spline was it it the first place? Sounds like you shortened it but can't tell... PIX?

Your right the 10 bolt is 28 spline and I did shorten it to 58" as far as the resplining goes dutchman did it for I think 85 bucks but you could inner change with dana 44 and junkyard parts to make a hybrid toyota d 44 to anything up to 65" off of the top of my head! I'm also kicking around the idea of taking a toyota center ifs axle and grafting dana 44 rear tubes to it and use a scout rear full floating kit that i have laying around , I'd just have to redrill the l.p.

I was trying to explain what I did , the axles that were posted for sale ( which I made.. ) were completed over 2 years ago...
if you read the posts carefully I did explain how to maintain alignment with the toy diff.......just trying to not GIVE too much away

it should also be noted that this conversion realistically should not be attempted by people with zero machining abilities...( if you had paid to get the machining done it would have been a lot more than $100.00
the vast majority will be better off buying the axles that are currently available..... <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">
