Just a thought....

Now, I know this isnt really popular and maybe not the most practical, but if I was to spring over my 91 Grand Wagoneer with a fairly soft 6in lift, what kinda axles would hold up. to maybe some 39-44's?

Thanks Ben

I think you are supposed to get Dana 60's for that. There has been some talk of chromoly axle shafts on the d-44 but then you might start grenading the internals. Word on the street is Dana 44's are only good up to 35's.

you definitely need 1-tons. I don't care what anyone says about 44s. They just won't hold up over time. You're better to invest in tons.

W/O a locker you can live with a 44 on 38s, If you use the skinny pedal respectivly. Throw in a locker, and your done. If you run a 44" tire you need atleast a 1ton axle.

6" lift springs SOA would be scary tall. You could fit 54's with that!
