Poll: ever break Dana 35 axle shafts with a TrueTrac?
In posts here at JF last week and in some conversations recently, I've seen/heard people disagree about running a TrueTrac in a Dana 35. Most people say you'll never break stock Dana 35 axle shafts with a TrueTrac; after all, it's not a locker (the max bias ratio is about 80%). Others say no, they broke stock shafts easily. One person even claimed that he "heard" about breaking an upgraded alloy shaft with a TrueTrac.
So, it would be interesting to do a little poll. Please vote if you have a TrueTrac in a Dana 35, even if you don’t have problems. If you did break a shaft with a TrueTrac, let us know something about the situation, and particularly the type of shaft and the tire size. If you really abuse stock shafts with your TrueTrac setup but you still don't have any problems, tell us something about the abuse.
EDIT 2011-07-30: I now have a TrueTrac and upgraded shafts. Terrific so far. The TrueTrac lives up to its hype, traction-wise, and I really didn't think that it could. Simply an amazing device. I'll give it a few more months before voting in this poll, though.
EDIT 2014-06-23: I've been at it for a while now and no problems, so I finally decided to come back and vote: alloy shafts, still going strong. I'm still very happy with my TrueTrac in the back. Happy trails, everyone.
