The dana 44A {aluminum housing} is not a very strong axle. Has virtually no locker options compared to the iron dana 44. It will handle up to 33's with light to moderate wheeling.

I agree with that...Chris has one, he should know. As an aside, the d44 aluminum is actually slightly stronger than the d35, but not as strong as a d44 cast iron. With an open diff, you can put 33" tires on there and it should last quite a long time assuming you are not out to beat the hell out of the rig. Anything can break if you try hard enough. I've been wheeling my 33" tired d35 for years and haven't snapped an axle shaft yet, [gritting my teeth and reaching for the closest piece of wood to knock on].
