what D44 axles make a good swap into a yota pickup?:deal: :goodjob:
I know yota axles are pretty strong, and I'm gonna keep mine for a while, but the idea of a front D44 is a better one than birfields, methinks...

AJ the pass drop waggy front is the best match for stock toy stuff. 62 ish wide matches the wide trac rear ( 86 newer ) Rubicon makes a cool offset pad for the SOA conversion. You even get 6 lug pattern, no new wheels needed. I'd leave the rear unless your going to run 38's or bigger tires, then it's 60 time. A toy rear with a gusseted housing will hold up to more than all but the newest aftermarket 44 stuff, and gives better ground clearance. :drive:

If you already have the Toyota axle, you might want to go with it.

With the 44, you will have to dump alot of $ into shafts and u-joints to make it hold up as well. Upgrade the Birfs in the Toy axle, and go. If you already had the 44, and had some time/money into it, I'd say go that route. There's a great bang for buck ratio w/ the Toyota stuff....

Keep in mind too, trunion bearings holding on your knuckles, not ball joints, factory hubs that are as strong, or stronger than any after market stuff, any monkey with a welder and a grinder can do a cut and turn on the axle for a nice pinion angle, easily...The housing is mild steel, lighter, more clearance...I'm not dissin the 44, just pointing out some things people dont always consider...There are negatives too...less turn radius(than u-joint axles), ring gear strength(w/steep gears)...etc.............................
