    Do you think a DANA 44:doah: can hold up to these if this is my daily driver and sees mostly light trail stuff. I am new to offroading and will most likely do easy stuff and don’t plan on running my stuff to hard. I have a dana 44 and 14ff both with 4.56 and open, powered with a 350/350/205. I plan on putting a Detroit in the rear and prob a truetrac in the front. Do you think that these axles will hold up to the 38s :confused: , they are only 11” wide. I plan on putting in D60, however I can’t find a good one to rebuild for a decent price so until then I will run my ¾ ton drivetrain. Thanks for the input

    I personally wouldnt given the weight of military tires. they are much heavier than a standard 38" tire. Never mind the axle itself, your putting alot of stress on things like balljoints, bearings etc. To hold you over till you get a 60 you should be fine.

    If you leave it open with those you will eventually have trouble.If you lock the front, you may be in for trouble fast.
