    Here is my thought, D60, forged Inner Cs with everything from there out being D60 parts. Chromo inner shafts, detroit, and some nice gears. Truss the housing. Lighter than a 60, much weaker? I'm just moving crap around outside cleaning up and one thing is a front 10 bolt, it just got me thinking while I was cutting the leaves off it. If I were to REALLY consider that, It would be on something like a light buggy with 37s.

    I think the weakest part of that setup would be the R&P. But on a light buggy with a reasonable amount of power, it might survive...

    Sounds like a D50. Just pull one from an F250.

    I'm constantly searching for hybrid or other solutions for axles. Goals, good ground clearance, lightweight, strong, lowest $$ the best. WHenever I build the buggy I think I will stop being stupid and just spring for Pro Rock 60s.
