The question isn't nonsense, some of the responses may be... IMO

Incorrect. The 8.8 offers less clearance than a D44 but the 8.8 OS easier to find. I would take a d44 with chromo shafts any day of the week over an 8.8

Hard to say, try comparing a super88 to a dana44 with the chromos, now what do you take

Still the D44, more clearance. The 8.8 does have a larger ring gear though, but they're both plenty strong. I also would take the bolt in swap over welding an 8.8 in

I would only swap a D44 of D60 under mine if I had the option and the D60 wouldn't go in for anything under 37's.

8.8 Benefits: Larger ring gear Thicker tubes 31 spline Availability Disc brakes

Disadvantages: c-clip Less ground clearance Not exactly Jeep width Not bolt in, so you better learn to weld and get good at it

D44 Benefits: Bolt in available if you have a TJ More ground clearance Larger aftermarket support

Disadvantages: Drum brakes 30 spline 8.5"? ring gear Smaller tubes More expensive if you are getting one from a TJ

I would take a 44 with chromos anyday. Then I would sleeve and truss it. Make one hell of an axle.

Yep, that 44 would be a bad *** axle. I wish someone made a decent four link kit. I hear the RockKrawler kit isn't bad.
