Dana 44 strength
Ive bent the tubing on my stock rear Dana 44. I pulled one to replace it from a rolling scout 2 frame that I have. Just curious if there were any difference in the tubes on this one other than length? Is it any stronger? I am gonna have a shop truss this one.
On your bent 86 axle, would you be Intrested in selling an axle shaft out of it provided its not bent too and spins without wobble ? I think I need the drivers side. Ill check

Josh @ Crawlertech does it all the time. He has all kinds of fixtures he uses for different axles. I watched him take a Ford 8.8 that was bent like a pretzel (slight exagerration) and straighten it out in about 30 minutes. He's a perfectionist.
what are you doing to bend your 86Dana 44? I have not bent mine?

I went a couple weeks back to an offroad park here in TN that had alot of steap hills and rock ledges. I have Yukon ZIP lokcers on both front and rear axles. Did quite a bit of bouncing. I was hanging with 2 other JK's with at least $15,000-$20,000 in mods each. . Anyways I went ahead and pulled the D44 outta the scout and having shop truss it for me. should be up and running by next weekend.
