    Depends. 1350 is stronger than 1330, but 1330 runs at more angle. 1410 is stronger still, and has good operating angle.

    to be totally honest on a D44 I wouldn't waste the money on going to 1350 unless you are going to build a serious rock rig. Even a mild to moderate rig should be ok with 1310's and a D44. The axles and axle ujoints are probably still a weaker link then the 1310's.

    I have seen 1310's blow dana 60 stubs so in the front they should be fine. Jesse at HAD can set you up with the 1350's if you really want.

    Build the D44 within reason. Drop in a locker, HD tierod, maybe crossover, good locking hubs, and call it a day.

    What do you plan on wheeling? Rocks? What size tires? If so you need to go wheeling with the crew here in AZ sometime. You might be convinced D60's aren't necessary.
