I'm just going off what I have seen in ct wheeling.
I have seen more wheel bearing issues on the Dana 44s than 8.25 I've also seen a Dana 44 just crack at the wheel bearing. And I'd disagree on the similar to a Dana 35. Side by side the Dana 35 shafts are a lot smaller

Honestly if I could re do it I would go with an 8.8 rear and build up my 30 and roll with some 35s. But whenever I finally get my shi t right it should be worth it

if nothings breaking your not wheeling it hard enough

This week im gonna build a track bar. Ive determined the body is moving on the axle and its not bump steer. Still have 5/8" heims that ill use. Im so happy I left the frame side trackbar mount on. Gonna weld a tab on the inner c of the axle to mount it on the axle. Hopefully ill be done soon with that and can finally drive the jeep. I re did some stuff on the front end. I re mounted the steering stabalizer with some actual mounts and I welded supports between the shackles. The welded supports improved the handling so much.

Sorry its been a while since last update. Put about 2000 miles on the jeep since the leaf spring swap and I love it. I think it handles bumps better than before the axle swap. My 37s are so bad I cant balance them. I want to get some new old style mtrs because they are so light but they suck in mud. I want the lightest set of easy to balance good in mud tires I can get in 37x12.50x17. Maybe a 36" irok. Any suggestions?

Probably feels like driving a mini van with the 3.55s huh, looking good though not many people follow through.

Ahh I was mistaken. If you don't like the fenders you can weld, pick up some tube throw together something and ditch the fenders. That's what I'm in the middle of. It's a slow coming. Where do you pick up your tube?

Dude I want tube flares so bad! I get it at a place called posner industries like 30 min from my house. They only sell it in like 44 feet sections so I have alot of extra. I want to buy a sheet of 3/16 and cut to fit my rear from the back doors back to the tailights like corner guards and then weld some tube one and build tube fenders off that but **** thatd be alot of work. If I had a tube bender id already be working on a full exo with tube flares buttttttttttttt, I dont. Lol
