My honest thoughts on this are, After wheeling with them I don't like 44s. At all. They are to delicate in the front application as far as shafts go they still use the 5x-760 joints I have in my turdy. In the rear they have bearing problems all to often. Your better off with a 8.8 or a 29 spline 8.25. Ibjeepin has beaten his on 35s I beat mine on 34s that are pretty grippy. I have seen them last on 36-37s. If you want bolt in that is your guy.

You say 44s have bearing problems(which they don't) yet suggest an 8.25? ( which are constantly burning through pinion bearings) Even the 29 spline shafts are still in the same region as a d35, and the aftermarket support is nothing compared to a 44. The 44 is stronger than a 8.25 hands down.
