    are the u-bolts and spring plates the same between the axles in the title? I need to know for sure. I'm picking up a D44/12B combo tomorrow.

    I wish!! the D44 and 12 bolt were rebuilt about 6 months ago, and they are in my price range. I have to get my rear 10 bolt repaired or replaced before I go to S. Korea in February. If I buy the 44/12, then when I come home in February '05, I don't have to worry about doing a lot of work to my K5 to be able to go 4 wheeling. Believe me, I thought about getting a 14BFF for the rear, new 8 lug rims, and an extra spare, (couldn't afford to switch the front over too, yet) and then getting a front axle to match when I come back home in February '05. the 44/12 combo is a lot easier for now. Besides, they have 4.56 gears, and the 12 bolt has an Auburn locker. They have about 1000 miles on them since they were totally rebuilt by a reputable drivetrain shop here.
