Aren't we just a tad sensitiveWhile I appreciate the input.... I am new to THIS forum I am not new to forums or wheeling. I was a Mechanic a 4WP for over 4 years and have built many axles.
Also I don't remember asking if a D44 can withstand 37" tires.... A V8 and anything less then a D60 is asking for trouble in just about any situation regardless of tire size.
Yes I did not go into detail with how I am going to build these axles because I am more of a tell as I do it or build it kind of person, not what I dream of doing or read about what others are doing.
I have put a lot of research into the disc brake setup and have not read that the calipers are prone to leaking, if they do I'll return them and get new ones.
When the front axle is done I will have Chromos, ARB, 4:88s, Reid Racing knuckles, Artec Hi steer with a Ruff Stuff diff cover, Etc.
Just as a good example of a F150 5 lug D44 holding up to 37" tires here you go one of my best friends wheeled for years with his locked D44/9" and 37" tires before he competed in a full season of CalROCS and Nor Cal Rock Racing with only breaking his E locker.
Yes I sound like a dick here but again I was not asking your opinion on the strength of a Dana 44. I am running a D44/60 with 37" tires because I ran 35" tires on my XJ for many years with a built D44 read a a bone stock D30 and never had a single issue.
If I needed advise I would post up in the tech section.....
