i personaly like the 44. but i got mine for $60 compleate out of a scout. i put 4.56, disk brakes, and locker. there are more parts for these and ther are somewhat cheeper. i wouldn't pay $225 for a 44 though and all you realy need is the housing, & shafts. most likley you will swop out gears and probably need a new carrier for the gears. Brakes you can go stock or disks.
Its not what you buy...its what you BUILD!!!
