    Dana 60. If you break that, get alloy shafts. If you break those, you're my hero :bow:

    it has a bbc and a 465 and the 208, to date i have only killed one short side but it killed all of the short side, inner outer and the joint, two hubs and the drive shaft. i have only had it out 6 or so times. so i think that it is alittle hard on parts.:doah:
