    Hi all here is th question. My buddy is doing a solid axle swap on a 94 Nissan. He has a Dana 44 from a widetrack Cheerokee. He asked me if my 10b would be a suitable rear axle to replace to match the width, and how it will hold up under a Nissan with 35's. Thanks

    If he is running a stock Nissan 4 or 6 banger I would think it would hold up better than in a heavy K5 w/ a small block...but then again, it is still 35's on a 10bolt.
    Probalby depends on what he does w/ it?

    Nissan's are lite it should hold up fairly well I'd think It could work long enough to get something better /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    I think it would be fine If he could find a 12bolt that would probably be slightly stronger

    I think it would be ok, also. My friend has a XJ and the hot axle swap is front&rear D44's. The 10 or 12 bolt isn't really that much different strength-wise from the 44 so I think it would work.

    I think your freind will be ok due to who much it weighs
    A frend in the club has a 10 bolt under a 4runner with 38
    inch swampers and is hardcore and has no trouble.

    Don't know if he would want to put the money into it, but a full float kit in a ten bolt makes a decent axle for light 4x4's. You get the clearance and low weight without the c-clips.
