This sux, recently installed a 14 bolt and dana 44 on my truck along with a nice 355 TBI motor. Damn T-case has been on it's way out for a while , pops out of 4 hi so I have used 4 low when I feel problems could arise... Managed to pull a wheely going up a steep incline and caught decent air at the top. Next thing I know there is a bang from the front, guess the torque and the extra load was to much for it and riped the spiders and ring gear to shreads ! This is only the second run on this axle.... Is there anything I can do to a dana 44 to make it hold up a little better? I ended up doing a lot of damage to my rig trying to get it off the trail. The motor is only pushing around 330-350 Horse and I am running 35's. I would have thought this axle could handle more than it did. Sorry whining makes me feel better. I will try to get some pics up soon. Thanx You call that dirty!?
